My Fair Lady remake is a reality

Comments Off on My Fair Lady remake is a reality 09 June 2008

Bad news for those of you who feel that My Fair Lady was perfect the first time ’round on film: it is definitely being remade, and Keira Knightley is definitely going to play Eliza Doolittle. According to The Telegraph, Keira is officially signed to the movie and has already begun singing lessons (though it’s yet to show up on IMDb). Also, it seems that Daniel Day-Lewis will fill Rex Harrison’s rather large slippers as Professor Henry Higgins at least, if the producers get their wish. He’s at the top of their short list of actors for the role, though there’s no word on whether he’s signed yet.

Now that it’s official, what do you think as Audrey fans? There have been whispers that remaking an Audrey Hepburn film is a sort of curse to an actress’s career, since Audrey is held in such high regard by the public and filmmakers. Will this hurt Keira’s career, or push her closer to the top of the heap?

Audrey Hepburn’s original vocals in My Fair Lady

Comments Off on Audrey Hepburn’s original vocals in My Fair Lady 05 February 2007

Some of you may not have seen these, but below is footage of Audrey as Eliza Doolittle from My Fair Lady singing to her original recorded vocals, not Marni Nixon’s dubbing. While it’s said that Audrey did record all of her songs to completion, the only vocals of hers available are “Wouldn’t It Be Loverly?” and “Show Me,” which she sings about 95% of in the final cut of the film. I really hope the rest of her songs weren’t thrown away or lost forever.
