Film Review

My Fair Lady is an unlikely musical of beloved songs and characters. Romance, refreshing comedy, and unexpected satire weave through this wonderful film that retains a great deal of George Bernard Shaw's "Pygmalion" (1912) which was itself inspired by Ovid's Metamorphosis.

Pickering throws a challenge that he couldn't make a duchess out of a flower-seller. Professor Higgins, an expert in Phonetics, is a celibate and often looks down on women. He provides her luxury and at the same time forces her t…
