Re: Aba brother, great job!

Aw big sis, I treasure your pourings of huge encomiums for a bit in clarification and it is the warmth of your love ... I think for probably whatever I do. On the other had I thank you profusely for asking queries that help in my own understanding while attempting an explanation.

Re: Kabu maam

So it (the film) brought alive memories of your parent too? Way back in the sixties

Re: FSI

I still remain an ardent admirer of Audrey Hepburn. She looked stunning to my then young eyes.

Re: C C T

The whole interest in any play is the underdog who is whipped, taking the whip and giving one a lesson to his/her master to feel for himself as to how it tastes. That was the point C C

Aba brother, great job!

Aha! Yes, I have it now; what bothered me about this story...Thank you. I've seen the film a couple of times, but not the play. And your post has brought to light what it is that strikes me the wrong way. Higgins had put so much "effort" intro transforming Eliza, but in the end is possessive in a sense and unappreciative of her. One normally should be pleased with and for Eliza, but he will never see her as an equal, or even as his better. She'll always be the cabbage leaf that HE transformed. I think he's more in love with himself than anyone. It would have been nice had Higgins developed a real relationship with Eliza that led to love. Hah! Great job, and for me, this clarified some of what I didn't like about the script. Not that it wasn't great...  5

I have to write it ...I was lucky or blessed enough, to see Rex Harrison and Julie Andrews in 'My Fair Lady,' in London back in the 1960's with my Mother and Dad.

My Fair Lady is an incredible work of art. Audrey Hepburn was excellent in it.

It was good drama. We all like to see the under dog come out on top. Of  course in this case good acting was enthralling . I like your explanation of the situation. Like books there are only so many twists and turns and then it is up to the author to vary each indecent to make it look not only different but plausible. Thank you.
