A major point in favour of this documentary (done for the 30th anniversary of the release of 'My Fair Lady') is that it was hosted by one of the original cast, Jeremy Brett, who played Freddy - he died a year later.
We hear from voice double Marni Nixon (who provided such wonderful vocals for Audrey Hepburn as Eliza), as well as Cecil Beaton, Julie Andrews, and Audrey Hepburn herself. We look back at the film and hear about how it was done and how it was to be part of it.
This documentary appeared on the second DVD release of the film (catching committed fans out who had gone for the first 'special edition') but is well worth seeing. It aired in the UK with the additional title of 'More Loverley Than Ever'.
