My Fair Lady
My Fair Lady
At one time the longest-running Broadway musical, My Fair Lady was adapted by Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe from the George Bernard Shaw comedy Pygmalion. Outside Covent Garden on a rainy evening in 1912, dishevelled cockney flower girl Eliza Doolittle (Audrey Hepburn) meets linguistic expert Henry Higgins (Rex Harrison). After delivering a musical tirade against "verbal class distinction," Higgins tells his companion Colonel Pickering (Wilfred Hyde-White) that, within six months, he could transform Eliza into a proper lady, simply by teaching her proper English. The next morning, face and hands freshly scrubbed, Eliza presents herself on Higgins' doorstep, offering to pay him to teach her to be a lady. "It's almost irresistable," clucks Higgins. "She's so deliciously low. So horribly dirty." He turns his mission into a sporting proposition, making a bet with Pickering that he can accomplish his six-month miracle to turn Eliza into a lady. This is one of the all-time great movie musicals, featuring classic songs and the legendary performances of Harrison, repeating his stage role after Cary Grant wisely turned down the movie job, and Stanley Holloway as Eliza's dustman father. Julie Andrews originated the role of Eliza on Broadway but producer Jack Warner felt that Andrews, at the time unknown beyond Broadway, wasn't bankable; Hepburn's singing was dubbed by Marni Nixon, who also dubbed Natalie Wood in West Side Story (1961). Andrews instead made Mary Poppins, for which she was given the Best Actress Oscar, beating out Hepburn. The movie, however, won Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor for Harrison, and five other Oscars, and it remains one of the all-time best movie musicals.

Hollywood's legendary "woman's director," George Cukor (The Women, The Philadelphia Story), transformed Audrey Hepburn into street-urchin-turned-proper-lady Eliza Doolittle in this film version of the Lerner and Loewe musical. Based on George Bernard Shaw's play Pygmalion, My Fair Lady stars Rex Harrison as linguist Henry Higgins (Harrison also played the role, opposite Julie Andrews, on stage), who draws Eliza into a social experiment that works almost too well. The letterbox edition of this film on video certainly pays tribute to the pageantry of Cukor's set, but it also underscores a certain visual stiffness that can slow viewer enthusiasm just a tad. But it's really star wattage that keeps this film exciting, that and such great songs as "On the Street Where You Live" and "I Could Have Danced All Night." Actor Jeremy Brett, who gained a huge following later in life portraying Sherlock Holmes, is quite electric as Eliza's determined suitor. --Tom Keogh

My next 'project' ... (Update: Reveal on 19 Aug 2008)
My next 'project' ... (Update: Reveal on 19 Aug 2008)
What I am doing next is not to replace my existing charm bracelet but this is a little project I am embarking on. I am starting a travel bracelet. So places that I have visited or will visit in the future, I will try and look for a silver charm that represents the country and add it on here. I have a list of charms I need to look out for. Unfortunately, have not found a shop in Singapore that carries many travel charms. So if you know of online places that may carry and ship overseas (found one in the States but they don't ship internationally and they don't accept Vpost addresses), do let me know :o) Update 20 June 08: Managed to find some sellers on ebay who are willing to send their charms worldwide. So I have a few in my shopping baskets and so looking forward to getting them. Yay. Update 26 June 08: Received several charms from two ebay sellers to add on to this bracelet - moose (Sweden where I saw my first live moose), gondola (that I took while in Venice), hibiscus (beautiful national flower for Malaysia) and love spoon (that I bought when I was in Wales). Update 8 Aug 08: The project is all complete and the big reveal will be on 19 August 2008! Look out for that!

flickr is being censored, especially our German friends suffer... I must object to this. and now I can put some bad self online lol English: If your Yahoo! ID is based in Singapore, Germany, Hong Kong or Korea you will only be able to view safe content based on your local Terms of Service so won’t be able to turn SafeSearch off. In other words that means, that German users can not access photos on flickr that are not flagged "safe" ... only flowers and landscapes for the germans ... We will not let this happen!
