REVIEWS:





"As Henry Higgins might have whooped, 'By George, they've got it!'
They've made a superlative film from the musical stage show. ....
The happiest single thing about it is that Audrey Hepburn
superbly justifies the decision of the producer, Jack L. Warner,
to get her to play the title role that Julie Andrews so charmingly
and popularly originated on the stage. .... [Director George Cukor]
has packed such emotion into this film—such an essence of feeling
and compassion for a girl in an all too-human bind—that he has made
this rendition of 'My Fair Lady' the most eloquent and moving that
has yet been done. .... Everyone in the large cast is in true and
impeccable form. Though it runs for three hours — or close to it — this
'My Fair Lady' seems to fly past like a breeze. Like Eliza's disposition
to dancing, it could go on, for all I'd care, all night."

-- Excerpt from The New York Times; October 22, 1964




ROGER EBERT'S 1994 REVIEW:




ROGER EBERT'S 2006 REVIEW:



"My Fair Lady is the best and most unlikely of musicals, during which
I cannot decide if I am happier when the characters are talking
or when they are singing. The songs are literate and beloved;
some romantic, some comic, some nonsense, some surprisingly
philosophical, every single one wonderful."

-- Roger Ebert; 2006
