Wild Young Minds: MY FAIR LADY

Tuesday, September 21, 2010


My Audrey Hepburn Collection rocks. I luuuuuv her way of acting, it's so funny and adorable. She always plays this daring woman who knows what she wants and isn't afraid of anything, but still very sweet and friendly.

Like the line on the Breakfast at Tiffany's cover: 'Audrey Hepburn plats that daring darling Holly Golightly to a new high in entertainment delight!'

Anyway, recently I saw 'My Fair Lady', a film that started as a musical. So, you know, a movie with a lot of singing in it. Mostly, I don't really like that sorts of movies but this one was very funny actually.

The story is about Eliza Doolittle, a Cockney girl who sells flowers to earn some money and who talks with a very rude accent. She takes speech lessons from professor Henry Higgins, a phoneticist, so she can turn out to be a proper lady.

In the middle of the movie there really was an Intermission, like they had it in the old times. And the dvd seriously stopped for 5 minutes, really funny. The end is marvelous, I feel like I'm saying that about every movie I write about, but it really is.

The songs are not my kind of music, it's sweet, but that's all. Though the rhymes Eliza has to learn are cool: 'The rain in Spain stays mainly in the plain'.

Yes, you should definitely see it! It's a classic Audrey Hepburn movie and I love it.
