My Fair Lady (1964)

I spent my afternoon watching this musical, and I absolutely loved it. Audrey Hepburn is so friggin' pretty and talented. Here's the awesome thing, it's actually available on Youtube in HD. How crazy is that. Also, I discovered something awesome recently, you can actually watch Youtube on VLC player just by pasting the link in the "open" window. And the streaming works flawlessly, I could even use another subtitle file for it.
I love musicals, I always have and probably always will. The language they use is simply beautiful. There's this song that amused me immensely.
Here's a higher quality but without the subtitles.
This is why I'm single.
The story is about a lower class girl who can't speak proper english for nuts. And a professor who decided to make her a project. He made a bet with a friend that he could turn her into a high-class lady in 6 months and bring her to a ball where the queen is attending.
It is very very funny and practically every song made me smile stupidly at my screen. I need to start watching more films starring Audrey Hepburn, I did hear her songs some long time ago, but I don't think I've ever watched her films before. I'm totally a fan of her now.
Another song that I loved in the film is this, With a little bit of luck.
It makes me want to just sit back and not do anything. Truth be told, I was actually revising for my exams, but I totally procrastinated after listening to this song.
With a little bit of luck I can do anything!
Ah... I need to find a friend who could watch musicals and spazz out with me, in the holidays. There doesn't seem to be a lot of guys who like these sort of things, and ain't gay. Oh well, I'm glad I managed to watch a classic film today. It made my entire week so much better.
