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.

Trivia: Rex Harrisson also played Henry Higgins on broadway. He wanted Julie Andrews for Eliza as well, since she had also played Eliza on broadway. (Julie didn't get the role obviously, but did play Mary Poppins that year, and won the Best Actress Oscar).

Trivia: Audrey Hepburn was not the only voice that was dubbed. The actor who plays Freddy had his voice dubbed as well, so in their scene together with the song 'show me' neither of them are singing.
