Feel-Good Films - A Series


Texas Leigh said...

My absolute most favorite musical. Great lyrics (Just You Wait Heny Higgins), great costumes (nothing beats Ascot), and great cast. I wish Audrey Hepburn and Jeremy Brett were allowed to do their own singing. You can't do better than "Sexy Sexy" and the charming Wilfrid Hyde-White. Only issue is I could have done without Stanley Holloway's numbers (I fast forward)), although I liked his scenes as Eliza's father.

Texas Leigh,

My favorite too.

I liked the Stanley Holloway numbers. I liked the entire film.

Completely charming.

Love the film and the live show. Just before quarantine a friend called and said he was coming over. I told him to come on over, but I was watching My Fair Lady. He laughed and said "Right". Was surprised when he arrived and I really was watching it. So well done.

The story and characters are great and it has so many memorable songs.

Many of the more recent musicals have one big song but then everything else, for the most part, is forgettable. [Think "Cats" and "Evita."]

I put it at the top of musicals.
