Outside Covent Garden on a rainy evening in 1912, dishevelled cockney flower girl Eliza Doolittle meets linguistic expert Henry Higgins. After delivering a musical tirade against 'verbal class distinction,' Higgins tells his companion Colonel Pickering that, within six months, he could transform Eliza into a proper lady, simply by teaching her proper English. My Fair Lady is about a misogynistic and snobbish phonetics professor agrees to a wager that he can take a flower girl and make her presentable in high society.
The well-nigh-irresistible...My Fair Lady...comedically softens Shaw's ending but nevertheless nearly single-handedly transcends the material's sexist leaning through the sheer humanism of Hepburn's deeply felt performance. [Blu-ray]
Despite a somewhat flawed and erratic third act, My Fair Lady rises on the strength of its lush costumes and settings, as well as several great and memorable songs, turning this into a musical that one can't help but enjoy in all of its grandeur.
