My Fair Lady
I got quite confused after watching this movie, and still, a little bit angry.
Let’s begin with the name.
What is a fair lady? Is it a lady who is appropriately elegant and knows when to smile. Or is it a stunner who can bring no end of misery to a great number of men even without moving her lips?
Obviously the director did want to be sarcastic. The exaggerated pride of Professeur, the pleasant rudeness of Eliza, all is good, but with unskillful intentions.
Many audiences complained about Eliza’s coming back to the arms of Professeur, regarding it as a retrogress of the independence of modern women. The author tried hard to potray his ideal images, yet he had won Hepburn to act as the well-known fierced flower girl and later---the fair lady with white dreamy evening dress.
But, where is love?
If the way Professeur felt about Eliza can be figured as love, then who did he like:the previous lowly girl who might scream to him on the street, or the former one, the lady with raised chin, charming air,and no expressions? If Eliza hadn’t had other young men who obsessedly talked to her, or if she hadn’t passed slightly with all eyes upon her, would Professeur take an another look at her. It was, when Professeur realized somenone could snatched this girl that he felt uncomfortable---jealousy reminded him of his “true love”. And when Eliza, as a piece of fine art work, was appreciated by the upper class,(he might not admit, but I think he cherished fame deeply in his heart), he reassured the necessity to keep this as long as possible.
Someone mentioned that Professeur was actually a warm-hearted man with no sense hierachy, for he had seen the potential in Eliza’s father and successfully recommended him to an officer. What we ought to notice here is that---he just digged the “old-time virtues” up and brought it to the upper class. Did he realised the outcoming? No,he was just responsible for the research---now there were “virtues”or “moralities”, then I just have to claim to the world the existence of such kind of stuff---quite ridiculous, isn’t it?
Therefore we can possibly draw a conclusion that Professeur didn’t really like Eliza. It was purely a mixture of vanity, desire to monopolize, and an exquisite appetite for unknown things.Maybe a little bit good feeling, vague and unsteady.
Eliza, I don’t really know how to evaluate Hepburn’s performance, for this world-famous goddes did do a seamless job. However, I wondered if Hepburn had taken a deep thought that why this girl fell in love with a duteous tamer. This man attempted to change you, forcing you to abandon your nature, all he wanted to do was to showed off his achievements through this experiment.Even if he became jealous when you were talking to other males, was it a signal that he couldn’t live without you? It was purely a habit, he felt uneasy without you, but he didn’t know you or care about your feelings. This man was no matter than the boy waiting outside for the whole ,night.Indeed,he could keep you warm and wealthy for a long period of time, never change his partner. But he was old, that’s the point, he had an old soul---he would put you by his side as a pretty blanket, as long as he could touch you, he felt contented. What about your life, girl? Did you regard it as true love?
Maybe the author should consult Shavian, if possible.
