Trivia: Rex Harrison was scared to death of going into a sound studio to record his vocals. He was allowed to sing "live" directly onto the soundtrack, as the film was made. Incidently, Alan Jay Lerner wrote the lyrics specifically to be half sung/half spoken. They were written especially for Harrison, as he was the one and only choice for Higgins when they originally wrote the musical.
Visible crew/equipment: When Professor Higgins is having Eliza practice saying the letter H by blowing into a tube to make the flame waver, the paper she's holding is actually Rex Harrison's lines. Once the paper starts to burn and the camera angle changes, you can read them and it's practically all of his lines for the whole scene.
