Gloriously witty adaptation of the Broadway musical about Professor Henry Higgins, who takes a bet from Colonel Pickering that he can transform unrefined, dirty Cockney flower girl Eliza Doolittle into a lady, and fool everyone into thinking she really isone, too! He does, and thus young aristocrat Freddy Eynsford-Hill falls madly in love with her. But when Higgins takes all the credit and forgets to acknowledge her efforts, Eliza angrily leaves him for Freddy, and suddenly Higgins realizes he's grown accustomed to her face and can't really live without it.
In this beloved adaptation of the Broadway stage hit, Audrey Hepburn plays a sassy, working class London street vendor, who an elitist professor (Rex Harrison) attempts to turn into a sophisticated lady through schooling. But when the humble flower girl blossoms into the toast of London's elite, her teacher may have a lesson or two to learn himself.
