' My Fair Lady held its premiere at the Criterion Theatre in New York. The film, said at the time to have the largest advance ticket sales of any movie in history, eventually went on to win eight Oscars at the 37th Academy Awards. New York — The most fabulous musical in the history of the stage has been made into a fabulous musical film, one that will be one of the greatest hits in movie history. It is, of course, My Fair Lady , a Warner Bros. presentation, a personal production of Jack L. Warner, and it is a better movie than it was a play. One of those rare, rare occasions when everything goes right, when it keeps going right and it moves and takes the spectator along, enchanted and enthralled. George Cukor's direction is as fresh and crisp as a first night, electric with dramatic tension, keyed high and held. Visually there has never — not ever — been a motion picture to equal the breathtaking loveliness of My Fair Lady. But far more is the fact that it is a witty film, and earthy film, with humor that ranges from the sophisticated conversation of George Bernard Shaw at his most recondite to Shaw at his most daring — with an assist from Alan Jay Lerner. It has perhaps the most nearly universal of themes. This was the theme of Shaw's play Pygmalion , and remained intact when it became My Fair Lady , and has survived — again intact, but marvelously refurbished and glittering — in the screen version. It is the story, as everyone must know by now, of the flower girl who becomes a princess, the dirty Cockney guttersnipe who is taught to talk like a lady, to walk like a lady, to hold her place in high society with the nobs and swells. Audrey Hepburn plays this girl, and Rex Harrison, repeating his great stage success, plays her mentor. Lerner did the screenplay, as he did the book and lyrics for the stage version. Frederick Loewe did the music. Lerner has been wise and modest in not attempting to improve on Shaw. Most of the dialogue, most of the jokes are Shaw's. What Lerner did with his lyrics was to extend the comedy into music, to put the ideas into restatement of another form. It is brilliant writing, as Loewe's music is imperishable. Cukor and Lerner have not done the conventional treatment of a stage. Source: www.hollywoodreporter.com
