“My Fair Lady” is the story of the simple man who wants to surpass himself, learn and enjoy life. Equally, it is the story of one who has the ambition to use his book science to polish a human character and to endow him with what man must always have at hand: a chosen and neat speech, an infallible tool of self-knowledge.
