Fathom Events, TCM and CBS are bringing My Fair Lady to select cinemas nationwide for a special two-day event, which includes exclusive insight from Turner Classic Movies. My Fair Lady is now more “loverly” than ever as a result of a breathtaking recent restoration in honor of its 50th Anniversary, this eight-time OSCAR winning musical (including Best Picture, Best Director & Best Actor)! Audrey Hepburn has never looked more radiant than as Eliza Doolittle who finds herself at the center of a friendly wager between Professor Henry Higgins (Rex Harrison) and his companion, Colonel Pickering (Wilfred Hyde-White). Can this disheveled, cockney flower girl find her voice and blossom into a proper lady presentable in high society? Performance, style and sweet spirit…plus an unforgettable score… have made My Fair Lady one of the greatest musicals in film history and a beloved and timeless classic that begs to be experienced on the big screen!
Did You Know?
The role of Eliza Doolittle was originally played on Broadway by Julie Andrews. However, she was denied the role because the film's producers didn't think she was "known" enough as a film actress. Many felt that this snub as well as Audrey Hepburn's singing being dubbed led to Hepburn's not being nominated for the Best Actress Oscar nomination.
