When it comes to vintage, Hollywood musicals - I'd say that this gaudy, overblown production certainly pushed the limits of spectator endurance with its 2-hour-50-minute running time.

Not only that - But (IMO) 1964's "My Fair Lady" didn't even contain a single memorable song and the overall choreography of the musical numbers was, basically, pretty boring stuff, in the long run.

Anyway - I think that a lot of this film's production troubles clearly rested on the shoulders of filmmaker, George Cukor. This was the first musical that he'd ever directed - And, thankfully, it was his last.
