The next morning, face and hands freshly scrubbed, Eliza presents herself on Higgins' doorstep, ready and willing to be turned into a lady.

Favorite Musical

My Fair Lady is my all-time favorite musical. The music is spectacular as well as the costumes and sets. It's such a fun movie and one I could watch over and over again. While I do enjoy Audrey Hepburn as Eliza, I still think Julie Andrews (who originated the role on Broadway) would have done a much better job. Because, really, who can do a musical better than Julie Andrews?
