My Fair Lady

Here are the trailer and several songs from the famous musical "My Fair Lady" starring Audrey Hepburn and Rex Harrison (the Broadway show was with Julie Andrews).
Few know that the great phonetics professor Peter Ladefoged (1925–2006) was hired by director George Cukor to teach Rex Harrison how to behave like an Edwardian-era phonetician for his role of Henry Higgins in the movie. He was also the (uncredited) voice of linguistics lesson.
Peter Ladefoged was a professor in the UCLA Linguistics Department from 1962 to 1991, and thereafter a Research Linguist. He was preeminent in the field of phonetics. He studied more than 400 languages for his masterwork on the sounds of the world's languages.
