My Fair Lady (1964)

Enjoy this beautifully played scene with Audrey Hepburn having a grand time. Cecil Beaton's costumes are magnificent. And, Rex Harrison does a happy dance.

Based on the musical, which was based on the play Pygmalion by George Bernard Shaw, the film was directed by George Cukor, music by Frederick Loewe, book and lyrics by by Alan Jay Lerner.

Marni Nixon provided the singing voice for Audrey Hepburn.

The film won 8 Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Costume Design, Color. Rex Harrison took the award for Best Actor in a Leading Role.

A beautiful and witty adaptation -- one of the best film musicals.
