Look, but don't touch! A musical of great charm and spark is fair nearly embalmed in this handsome but static cinematic record. Harrison's reedy charms sidle through, but Hepburn's cockney screech is quite horrid. The pipedream of 'what if..' with Julie Andrews instead is too tragic. The film belongs in a museum of some sort.
A colorful and big-budgeted musical with the charming Audrey Hepburn as the street tramp that becomes a lady. Excellent decoration, costumes and sets, but that several actors could not sing and were dubbed is a bit obvious when one look/listen at it closely and that ruins some of it's impact.
Obviously iconic (I mean I recognized each and every song without having ever watched the film/musical) but left me quite underwhelmed. Rex Harrison's great but this is definitely far from my favourite Hepburn performance. Still, that beaded white ballgown was e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g.
