*** There's also an element of laissez-faire that won't be present to today's audience. Modern audiences sympathise with Eliza since her poverty and upbringing would naturally cause her to be rough in her speech and mannerisms, but older ones might be less sympathetic. To today's audience Henry also comes off as arrogant, buying Eliza for an entertaining game while she just wants to make a fair deal to rise above her station and pay for lessons, and he implies she should be grateful just because he was luckier in life than she was, and even implies that she's basically one of his belongings in one scene.

* DawsonCasting: Audrey Hepburn was in her mid-thirties when she played the 21-year-old Eliza in the film adaptation.
** The life of an apparently quite poor flower girl in those days probably would have aged the character of Eliza beyond her years; in this case, DawsonCasting may have been justified.
*** Furthermore, Audrey Hepburn always looked younger than she actually was.


Added DiffLines:

* RetroactiveRecognition: Eliza's potential suitor is Series/SherlockHolmes.

* TheyJustDidntCare: Instead of commissioning a new restoration for the 2011 Blu-Ray, CBS just upscaled a 1994 restored version to 1080p. Averted for the 50th Anniversary Blu-Ray and DVD, which utilized an improved, 4K restoration--one so meticulous, CBS didn't complete it until the movie's 51st Anniversary.

** When it was first made, Eliza came across as much more unacceptably uncouth to theatre-goers, and therefore just as bad as Henry, whereas it's getting more and more common to see Henry as a misogynistic, snobbish villain putting Eliza unfairly down. Basically, they're each supposed to be a JerkWithAHeartOfGold, but current values don't look favorably on characters like Higgins.
** Freddy's love-sickness and patient wait is stalking in today's terms, and while would have been seen as romantic by all parties at the time, easily disturbs people nowadays.
