Audrey Hepburn's Eliza Dolittle did not thrill me the way Julie Andrews' did. But remember that I was around 12 at the time I discovered that great Original Cast recording. It was a revelation. I could listne to it and imagine whatever I wanted to see in my mind. Then I started seeing Julie's movies, and it only got better and better. By then I was 16 or above.
