My Fair Lady is a 1964 American musical film that depicts a poor Cockney flower seller named Eliza Doolittle (played by Audrey Hepburn) who overhears an arrogant phonetics professor, Henry Higgins (Rex Harrison) as he casually wagers that he could teach her to speak “proper” English, thereby making her presentable in the high society of Edwardian London.
A critical and commercial success, My Fair Lady won eight Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Actor, and Best Director. In 1998, the American Film Institute named it the 91st greatest American film of all time.
