In the film, the entire song is sung in one scene that takes place just after Higgins has sung "I'm an Ordinary Man". However, the song does have a dialogue scene Doolittle's conversation with Eliza's landlady between verses. The instrumental "Busker Sequence", which opens the play immediately after the Overture, is the only musical number from the play omitted in the film version.
However, there are several measures from this piece that can be heard as we see Eliza in the rain, making her way through the cars and carriages in Covent Garden. All of the songs in the film were performed near complete; however, there were some verse omissions, as there sometimes are in film versions of Broadway musicals. For example, in the song "With a Little Bit of Luck", the verse "He does not have a Tuppence in his pocket", which was sung with a chorus, was omitted, due to space and its length.
The original verse in "Show Me" was used instead. The stanzas of "You Did It" that came after Higgins says "she is a Princess" were originally written for the Broadway version, but Harrison hated the lyrics, and refused to perform the song unless and until those lyrics were omitted, which they were in most Broadway versions. However, Cukor insisted that the omitted lyrics be restored for the film version or he would not direct at all, causing Harrison to oblige. The omitted lyrics end with the words "Hungarian Rhapsody" followed by the servants shouting "Bravo" three times, to the strains of Liszt 's "Hungarian Rhapsody" before the servants sing "Congratulations, Professor Higgins".
Hepburn's singing was judged inadequate, and she was dubbed by Marni Nixon ,  who sang all songs except "Just You Wait", where Hepburn's voice was left undubbed during the harsh-toned chorus of the song and Nixon sang the melodic bridge section.
Hepburn did sing the brief reprise of the song in tears. Some of Hepburn's original vocal performances for the film were released in the s, affording audiences an opportunity to judge whether the dubbing was necessary. Harrison declined to pre-record his musical numbers for the film, explaining that he had never talked his way through the songs the same way twice and thus could not convincingly lip-sync to a playback during filming as musical stars had, according to Jack L.
Warner , been doing for years. George Groves decided to use a wireless microphone , the first such use during filming of a motion picture. One of the few differences in structure between the stage version and the film is the placement of the intermission. In the stage play, the intermission comes after the embassy ball where Eliza dances with Karpathy. In the film, the intermission comes before the ball, as Eliza, Higgins, and Pickering are seen departing for the embassy.
All tracks played by the Warner Bros. Between brackets the singers. It was re-released again in after a thorough restoration. The consensus states: "George Cukor's elegant, colorful adaptation of the beloved stage play is elevated to new heights thanks to winning performances by Audrey Hepburn and Rex Harrison.

Pickering's proud summation of Eliza Doolittle's performances as a duchess at the Embassy Ball, 'a total triumph. It is Hollywood at its best, Jack L. Warner's career capstone and a film that will go on without now-forseeable [ sic? Scenes move at a steady, even pace, as though every word were worth its weight in gold perhaps, in view of the price paid for the rights, it very nearly was. Especially, the decor tends to inhibit rather than release the film.
Coe of The Washington Post also suggested that Hepburn's casting was the film's "basic flaw," describing her as "recognizably exquisite—but not 21—as the flower girl and to the later scenes she brings a real flirtatiousness quite un-Shavian. Chicago Sun-Times critic Roger Ebert gave the film four stars out of four, and, in , he put it on his "Great Movies" list, praising Hepburn's performance, and calling the film "the best and most unlikely of musicals. It's a classic not because a group of stuffy film experts have labeled it as such, but because it has been, and always will be, a pure joy to experience.
My Fair Lady won eight Oscars :  . The film was restored in by James C. Katz and Robert A. Harris , who had restored Spartacus three years earlier.
