Last night watched My Fair Lady for the first time in years.Saw it in a different light than i did as a child. Actually paid attention to the dynamic between henry higgins and eliza dolittle- the way he called her an insolent hussy and even a brazen hussy -ah,brilliant and there should be more of it,for isn't it every woman's dream to be called an insolent hussy-well of course it is!!-possibly by the likes of TBT -haha.
Mood - thinking what to eat for dinner
Music - waitin' on a sunny day-bruce springsteen
How right your are Dafty - TBT can call me an insolent hussy any time. I love My Fair Lady. Audrey Hepburn is absolutely beautiful (the same sort of beautiful as Grace Kelly) and you know she didn't do any of the singing for that show (apparently she was a cr@p singer) AND Rex Harrison actually talked his songs rather than sing them. AND Julie Andrews was playing the stage version of Eliza Dolittle at the time but missed out on the movie role cos she was considered to be an "unknown" Interesting pieces of trivia .... or not!
i love trivia.My thought on audrey hepburn is that she always looked like she needed a good feed .It was good in a way that julie andrews didn't do the role from this point of view- that she was too "pretty" if that makes sense-whereas audrey's face is a little more interesting,but i've always thought from the singing point of view that it was a pity that they didn't give the role to julie andrews. I adore the last scene in that movie.Want to buy it on dvd so i can watch it again and again,like a real sicko .
