Study English with Movies – My Fair Lady – 1964


Audrey Hepburn is completely lovely!!! 🙂 If you already watched this movie, you know what I mean!!

My Fair Lady is a musical based on George Bernard Shaw‘s Pygmalion, with book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner and music by Frederick Loewe. The story concerns Eliza Doolittle, a Cockney flower girl who takes speech lessons from professor Henry Higgins, a phoneticist, so that she may pass as a lady. The original Broadway and London shows starred Rex Harrison and Julie Andrews.

The musical’s 1956 Broadway production was a notable critical and popular success. It set a record for the longest run of any show on Broadway up to that time. It was followed by a hit London production, a popular film version, chart topping original cast and soundtrack albums and numerous revivals. My Fair Lady has frequently been called “the perfect musical”.[1]

But the most important topic when you have to study and have this movie as reference is the Phonetic! There are so many delicious accents to be explored and it is a delicious comedy!

You must watch this movie!
