This weekend, one of my friends celebrated a birthday and as part of her celebration, we went out to dinner and she treated us to a showing of My Fair Lady. Our local historic theatre which was built in 1925 is having a summer season of older movies shown on the big screen. Two weeks ago was Casablanca and next week is Fiddler on the Roof. It’s so awesome to be in that beautiful lady with the plush velvet seats and fancy scrollwork and see these films as they were meant to be seen.
First, what opera were the patrons seeing at the beginning at the film when ‘Enry ‘Iggins first met Eliza Doolittle outside Covent Garden Opera House?
Second, what man played the infatuated Freddy? A man who later went on to play Sherlock Holmes and who’s real father was named Henry Huggins?
Third- What other role did Rex Harrison have that was related to a Doolittle or Dolittle?
