My Fair Lady Movie Quotes (1964)

Rex Harrison (Professor Henry Higgins): Why can't a woman be more like a man?

Wilfrid Hyde-White
(Colonel Hugh Pickering): Have you NO morals, man?
Alfred P. Doolittle: Nah. Can't afford none. Neither could you, if you were as poor as me.

Rex Harrison (Higgins): Every night before you go to bed, where you used to say your prayers, I want you to say, "The rain in Spain stays mainly in the plain" fifty times. You get much further with the Lord if you learn not to offend his ears.

Audrey Hepburn (Eliza Doolittle): I sold flowers; I didn't sell myself. Now you've made a lady of me, I'm not fit to sell anything else.

Audrey Hepburn (Eliza): The difference between a lady and a flower girl is not how she behaves, but how she is treated.

Wilfrid Hyde-White (Pickering): Are you a man of good character where women are concerned?
Rex Harrison (Higgins): Have you ever met a man of good character where women are concerned?

Rex Harrison (Higgins): : The question is not whether I've treated you rudely but whether you've ever heard me treat anyone else better.

Did you know?
That Audrey Hepburn was voted #3 Woman in AFI's 50 Greatest American Screen Legends?
That My Fair Lady was voted #94 in AFI's 100 Greatest American Movies of All Time?

That although Audrey Hepburn vigorously prepared to do the singing, her voice was dubbed by Marni Nixon. Hepburn was terribly upset by the substitution.

Although Rex Harrison reprised the role of Henry Higgins which he had played on Broadway, other actors, including Cary Grant, were considered for the role. Harrison wanted his Broadway co-star, Julie Andrews, to play Eliza Doolittle. She also had strong support from the play's composer, Alan Jay Lerner. But Warner Brothers feared casting a stage actress in so expensive a production.

The following year, Twentieth Century Fox would cast Julie Andrews in The Sound of Music, which proved that a stage actress could carry a big screen role. Ironically, Andrews replaced Mary Martin who had originated the role of Maria on Broadway.

The movie and play are musical versions of another play, George Bernard Shaw's "Pygmalion".
