Re: Decent Films

What’s your expert opinion (and quick ratings) on the following movies?

  • My Fair Lady
  • Mary Poppins
  • The Great Mouse Detective
  • Gunga Din
  • The Lady Vanishes (old Hitchcock one, not the ’79 remake!)

Much as I love both Audrey Hepburn and Julie Andrews, I’m afraid I’m not a big fan of My Fair Lady or Mary Poppins. Both are gorgeous to look at — the films, I mean — and I can understand why people love them, but they don’t work for me. It’s possible and even likely that I will write reviews of both of them in the months to come.

I have only hazy memories of The Great Mouse Detective and The Lady Vanishes, but they’re positive hazy memories. Gunga Din, alas, I have never seen.
