Who has seen this movie? grinsmiley

I saw it so long ago, I think I was about 15. My friend and I rented My Fair Lady and The Sound of Music.

I didn't know that Julie Andrews wanted to get the part for the cinematic version of the play. She was doing the broadway play of My Fair Lady. The part was given to Audrey Hepburn though who felt bad because a lot of people wanted to see Julie Andrews in it instead.

At the time Julie was chosen for Mary Poppins. When the Oscars came around, it was clear that Audrey was snubbed as she did not win the oscar for best actress that year and instead it was given to Julie as best actress for Mary Poppins. My Fair Lady did win a lot of awards and nominations though.

Oh yes! I saw it again not long ago! It was one of my mom's favorite movies! I loved the DVD edition with he behind the scenes info. I never knew till then that Audrey wasn't doing all her own singing.

I haven't seen it in years, but I love those old movies. And I was always impressed by the work that Audrey Hepburn did with poverty-sticken children. She had a beautiful heart.

One of Audrey Hepburn's favorite things to quote (and is often said to have been written by her, but really wasn't) is this:



Beauty Secrets for Women

For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.

For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.

For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.

For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.

For beautiful hair, let a child run his/her fingers through it once a day.

People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; Never throw out anyone. Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of each of your arms. As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands; one for helping yourself, and the other for helping others.
