Hepburn is clearly awkward as the Cockney Eliza in the first half, and in general the adaptation is a little too reverential to really come alive.

For those who've seen the stage show, My Fair Lady give complete satisfaction and those who will see and hear the musical for the first time will be enchanted by it.

Even if the story is quite simple, the film, as directed by the legendary George Cukor, achieves various levels of depth, particularly because of the way in which he turns it into a keen gender study.

With elegance and taste, George Cukor rightly preserves the theatricality of the enterprise and provides a joyful experience to savour again and again.

Few genres of films are as magical as musicals, and few musicals are as intelligent and lively as My Fair Lady.

A delightful adult musical, there are some hysterically funny double-entendres if you pay attention.

Not even Audrey Hepburn can step into the role that Julie Andrews was born to play, and for that, the film will always feel a half-beat off.

The charisma of the leads, the gratifying (if poorly paced) story arc and the hummable tunes allow us to get past some of the film's cinematic weaknesses.
