My Fair Lady

Post by dachshundonstilts » Tue Jun 27, 2017 10:36 am

I have to make a confession about "My Fair Lady"...

Although I was in high school when I first saw it, it was only many years later that I realized, when Jeremy Brett said "I want to drink in the street where she lives," that he was using "drink in" as a compound verb.

Haha that's so funny how sometimes we will misconstrue meanings of things.
And I have a confession of my own to make....

I've never seen My Fair Lady in full. But I have seen She's All That, which is essentially a remake in its own right.

My Fair Lady is great. I can't remember how I heard that particular "drink in" phrase, but I would bet I interpreted it as two words, as well. I am notorious too for misconstruing things like that.

Now I'll have to watch it gain sometime just to see Jeremy Brett in it, I don't remember him at all. Nor do I even remotely remember that scene.

The original version, Pygmalion 1938, starring Wendy Hiller and Leslie Howard is my favorite.

Wow, I'll bet that is good. I didn't realize the play itself had ever been put on film.

It's very good as I remember.

Wendy Hiller also starred in Major Barbara, 1941, from another George Bernard Shaw original play.
