    My favorite movie of all time would have to be My Fair Lady with Audrey Hepburn in it. I just love that movie. If you havn't seen it, it's about a women named Eliza Doolittle who is raised on the streets with bad manners. One day Professer Higgins meets her, and she learns he can make any woman into a proper lady. It is very romantic and sweet, but is a musical. "Lots of chocolates for me to eat" I just had to add that. LOL So does anyone else love this movie as much as I do.

    What? I thought Pygmalion was the mythology guy who created a statue who he loved so much he went to Athena and asked her to make her real, and she did and so forth.... I've never read the full version. I've mostly only read the edited versions, but they're all called My Fair Lady. Hmmm...

    It's not my favorite movie of all time, but I love Audrey Hepburn, and the movie was adorable. The first time I saw it was in French class in HS... my french teacher was obsessed with the movie. :)

    I love the show. It is funny everyone feels the same way I do about AH in it. She was perfect for the character, I loved her in it. Isn't it true that she did not sing the part? I heard that they tried to get Julie Andrews to sing in AH's place but she declined.

    My Fair Lady is one of my favs too ! For anyone who knows something about Ontario ( Canada ) I went and saw the musical in Stratford ( a small town that is world renowned for its plays ) last summer. It was AMAZING !

    I'm so jealous. I told my mom after watching it that I wanted to play Eliza Doolittle on Broadway one day, to bad I can't sing. But actually audrey hepburn didn't sing her own songs either they said she couldn't sing well enough. They really wanted Julie andrews to play in it, but she decided to do Mary poppins instead.
