* 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.

* GeniusBonus: In the Film, near the beginning we get a glimpse of Henry Higgins' notebook, which he's using to transcribe people's accents. It's unreadable... unless you understand [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shavian the Shavian alphabet]], whose creation was funded by George Bernard Shaw.
* HoYay: Higgins and Pickering have quite a bit, particularly in "A Hymn to Him".
