** During tryouts, Higgins tried to cheer Eliza up with a PepTalkSong called "Come to the Ball." The song was cut due to the show's excessive length, though a portion of it remains in the patter section of "I've Grown Accustomed To Her Face" - making it a DarkReprise of a song that isn't actually in the show.

** The movie got this for over the use of a NonSingingVoice for Audrey Hepburn, which became highly controversial even though movies had been dubbing people almost since the beginning of sound ("We even dubbed Rin-Tin-Tin," producer Jack Warner protested). The negative media coverage was widely seen as costing Hepburn an Academy Award nomination, and mostly killed off the practice of dubbing actors with better singers - even when [[Theatre/{{Camelot}} they couldn't sing]].

* MisBlamed: Many critics and commentators have blamed Alan Lerner for changing the ending of Shaw's play to make it seem like Higgins and Eliza might get together. He actually used the exact same ending as the 1938 film version.

* CutSong: "Say A Prayer For Me Tonight" was written for this show, but cut and used later in ''Gigi''.
** Also, there's an extra verse sometimes re-added to "You Did It" expanding on Karpathy's raves about Eliza's certain Hungarian birth.
