Album Cover Art Wednesday: My Fair Lady

My parents had a circa 1960-something stereo console thing. It looked more like a bookcase or china hutch than a record player. The sound wasn’t all that great but it did have plenty of storage for records. I recall this LP being played quite often by my Mom:

Pondering this album cover was how I learned about George Bernard Shaw, which inspired me to read his plays and I’m a fan to this day. As far as movies go, I prefer the 1938 Leslie Howard-Wendy Hiller version of Pygmalion to the Rex-Audrey My Fair Lady. Even as a child I had a hunch that Ms. Hepburn was lip-syncing. Anyway, here’s the cover for the film version:

Here’s the original broadway cast LP in the playlist format:
