My Fair Lady is the most popular musical created in the last century. Among those who made it so famous were Alan Jay Lerner , who wrote the book and lyrics, and Frederick Loewe, who did the music (both Americans); Rex Harrison and Julie Andrews (both British), who starred; and – to coin a phrase – last, but not least, George Bernard Shaw , the English playwright on whose best play Pygmalion the musical was based.

Alan Jay Lerner

Frederick Loewe

In 1952 Alan Jay Lerner began to change the play into a musical. He worked on it for four years, writing a song here and a bit of dialogue there.

With Frederick Loewe they put together five songs.

Lerner was impressed by Rex Harrison as Professor Higgins and he tailored his material to Harrison’s style, the result being, among other magnetic songs,

the gentle, reflective

“ I’ve grown accustomed to her face”

For Julie Andrews, who played Eliza Doolittle, Lerner and Loewe wrote the dreamy “I could have danced all night”, the revengeful “Just you wait” and delightful “Wouldn’t it be lovely”.

The musical became a film with practically the same cast except… Julie Andrews.

The actress who was invited to play Elisa Doolittle was

Audrey Hepburn.

The film was made by Warner Brothers and released in 1964.

It has been extremely popular ever since.
