'My Fair Lady' Keeps
Freshness of Play
By PAUL SAWYER
At the Michigan Theatre
George Cukor's full-blown, sup-
er-stereophonic production of "My
Fair Lady" is the most lavish,
highly polished, and graceful
transcription of any m u s i c a 1
comedy for the screen.
This does not, of course, say a
great deal. But "My Fair Lady"
as a play is the only true musical
comedy I know, standing conspic-
uously apart from that vast flock
of bubbly, scatter-brained exer-
cises in witlessness that commonly
take that name.
The play's great 'advantage, of
course, is its derivation from
Shaw. "Pygmalion" mocked the
superficiality of the British class
system by advancing the thesis
that all a common flower-girl need
do to become a great lady over-
night would be to change her
accent. The satire comes through
beautifully on the screen, due in
large part to the highly com-
petent performances of Rex Har-
rison and Audrey Hepburn.
Harrison mocks wickedly and
exquisitely and is a throughly de-
lightful cad until his inevitable
surrender to love. Miss Hepburn
has many delightful moments,
particularly as the humble flower-
girl. Her wide-eyed, wide-jawed
bedazzlement, her "delightful low-
ness," her unfathomably vast
simplicity, her charming . . . but
I am afraid it may be my phy-
siology speaking rather than my
Then they ruin it all in the
Buckingham Palace scene when
they wrap her in gauze and pile
her hair up fan-like on the back
of her head.
As for the purely physical aspect
of the film, it will keep anyone's
eyes agreeably filled for a long
time. Much of it is a constant
procession of parasols, carriages,
fastidiously designed gowns and
furs, and enormous pink and blue
clouds of bouquets.
Music, decor, and acting still do
not, however, make a successful
film, or anything more than a
competent adaptation. For the
most part the pace is brisk and
witty, never letting the spectacle
clog it up too much. Yet some of
the inevitable pitfalls of the
musical-comedy genre creep in.
For example, the consistency of
Eliza's character does not survive
her change of speech. In fact, Miss
Doolittle appears to pick up brains
as well as language habits. The
nervous shriek and exhausting
bounciness, which tend to get out
of hand in the beginning, do not
jive well with the inner anguish
and redness of eye which plagues
the later scenes, and which add
too much melodrama to the film
as a whole.
I suppose nobody ever expects
a filmed musical to be any more
than a filmed musical. If most of
this film's virtues do, in fact, pro-
ceed from the play, I do not know
what more could have been done
with it. But it has a verve, a fresh-
ness, and a polish which make
"My Fair Lady" if not great
cinema, at least a pleasant eve-

President Johnson's proposal would,
in effect, require students to apply
for loans through their local bank.
This would createnseveral difficulties
which do not present exist.
Freshmen or transfer students who
have not been on the Michigan cam-
pus previously would be having their
loan interviews with persons who might
not realize the cost o fa Michigan edu-
cation (Vis-a-vis housing, books, inci-
dentals, etc.) relative to costs at
other schools, while obtaining a loan
through the University enables the Uni-
versity to warn a student if his price
estimations are too low.
When a student with one or several
bans or other payments due graduates
from the University, he is permitted to
set up a payment schedule with the
finance office. If he is unable to re-
pay a loan because of heavy travel
expenses after graduation then he can
delay payments or at least reduce them.
Local banks may not prove to be as
flexible in their repayment schedules
as the University has allowed itself
PRINCIPLE: The basic purpose of a
public student loan program is to aid
as many students as possible, provided
that they show some level of need,
at the lowest price and highest con-
venience to each student as possible,
while at the same time preserving the
integrity of the loan.
MOVE: That the University of Mich-
igan Student Government Council af-
firms its confidence in the National
Defense Education Act which has per-
mitted both graduate and undergrad-
uate college students to obtain low
interest, long terms loans through
their local colleges and universities.
The elimination of the National De-
fense Education Act would be detri-
mental to a vast number of college
students throughout the nation.
Student Government Council urges
that the proposal before Congress to
eliminate the National Defense Edu-
cation Act in favor of federal guaran-
tees for private loans be defeated.
Student Government Council urges
that the precent forgiveness clauses
of thetNational Defense Education Act
be retained if a new program should
MOVE: That copies of the above mo-
tion and enclosed Fast and Principle
section be sent to President Johnson,
GovernorbRomney, Senators Hart and
McNamara, and Congressman Vivian,
Vice-President Cutler, Vice-President
Pierpont and Mr. Rae.
Approved: PRINCIPLE: The student
body should have a voice in choos-
ing the next president of the Univer-
sity. The significance of the office and
its importance to students and student
affairs should not be ignored. We be-
lieve this participation should be
throughout the selection process from
evaluating the University's needs and
interviewing potential candidtes to in-
clude student membership on the Pres-
idential Selection Advisory Committee.
The role of this committee would be to
recommend presidential candidates to
the Regents for their selection. In the
best interests of all parties, SOC urges
