I asked my wife to pick any film she liked and I’d review it. So I watched My Fair Lady for the first time.
It does go on; 30 minutes could have been trimmed easily. Hepburn was good but didn’t wow me as expected.
But on the other hand there is Rex Harrison. What an absolute delight! His misogynistic and ill-mannered Higgins is a joy to watch. I found myself waiting for him to appear again.
The songs are warm, amusing and memorable, and once you add in Rex it’s easy to see why it’s held in such high regard.
