The musical version of "Pygmalion" is a mixed bag. Hepburn and Harrison are both good, although Wendy Hiller and Leslie Howard were better attuned to the characters in the 1938 film of "Pygmalion." The songs sung by Eliza (Marni Nixon dubbing Hepburn) are lovely. Too bad they did not dub Harrison's talk-singing (a precursor to rap?), which is rather annoying. The numbers by Holloway are also amusing if superfluous to the rest of the film. Cukor was known more for eliciting good acting than for any cinematic genius. Here he does little more than film a theatrical production and he leaves out nothing. At nearly three hours, it is at least an hour overlong.

In this literal, beautiful, bountiful version of the most gilt-edged attraction in theater history, Jack Warner has miraculously managed to turn gold into gold.
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.
