    I know the wait will be worth it, but changing the date is like giving candy to a kid than taking it away from him saying you can have it later.

    Why all this pillow fighting over the '64 Academy Award winners? Artistically speaking, Dr. Strangelove was the best film of 1964. :P

    * ...which is why everyone associated with it was obliged to go home empty-handed. That's just Academy Awards 101.

    Well, it was more deserving than that woman and if My Fair Lady had not been released that year, that's what would have won.If you really want to talk injustice, we can talk about the race for the Best Song of 1977. That time, the Shermans did deserve it more than the winner. So did all the other runners-up.

    And lets let that be the end of the Mary Poppins discussion.

    This is simple. This is a thread for My Fair Lady.

    Take any further comments on Mary Poppins to a Mary Poppins thread.

    Can those of us who love both movies, saw them [SIZE=14.4444446563721px]within weeks of each other [/SIZE]in the theatre as a child, and have a left hand large enough to hold both theatre programs in post the odd selfie?

    I never saw Mary Poppins in the cinema but I remember the very first Melbourne cinema season of MFL very well indeed.
    My then-girlfriend Robyn (we're still together) had come to Melbourne from Sydney to see me and we spend a week in a little flat close to the centre of town. For some reason or other we almost never left the flat ... except to buy fresh spicy fruit buns and cream cheese and other nutritional necessities.
    BUT we decided to treat ourselves to a big-screen display of MFL.
    And we loved it. At interval (yes, there was an interval at that screening) we hung about in the foyer having a lemonade or suchlike, when a lovely lady (to us then a lovely old lady) rushed up to us with a big plate of sandwiches, forcing them on us and saying 'you poor dears. You both look so absolutely HUNGRY".
    We realised were indeed very hungry and those sandwiches were utterly delicious. How lovely, we thought. A little incident we've never forgotten and part of our special MFL mystique.

    Anthony,
    That's what's called mourir d'amour.

    While we're waiting, here are the first 7 (of 28) pages from the movie program I got in 1964 when I saw "My Fair Lady" in Vancouver at the Stanley Theatre:


    My Fair Lady 10024. My Fair Lady 10028. My Fair Lady 10025. My Fair Lady 10026. My Fair Lady 10027. My Fair Lady 10006. My Fair Lady 10007.



    I scanned them all, if you'd like me to post them.

    And pages 24 through 28, to finish the booklet:


    My Fair Lady 10001. My Fair Lady 10002. My Fair Lady 10003. My Fair Lady 10004. My Fair Lady 10005.

    I'll try to post the remaining pages tomorrow. The mechanics of editing posts is making me feel my age tonight.

    And, I hope, pages 20 through 23:


    My Fair Lady 10020. My Fair Lady 10021. My Fair Lady 10022. My Fair Lady 10023.
