Did you know, for instance that Julie Andrews, who was considered THE actress for the role because she had been so successful bringing Eliza Doolittle to life on the stage, was rejected for the movie?
Did you know that Audrey Hepburn did NOT do most of the singing in this musical movie?
Did you know that Jeremy Brett's singing was also dubbed?
Did you know that James Cagney, Peter O'Toole, Cary Grant, Noel Coward, Michael Redgrave and George Sanders were all considered for the role of Higgins?
Did you know that in 1962 Warner paid a staggering 5.5 million dollars for the rights to the film, setting a record that wouldn't be broken until 1978.
I do find the information about the creation of a movie, especially onw that endures the test of time like My Fair Lady, particulary interesting. How about you?
