So I’m watching My Fair Lady on the television. It’s always on, but I haven’t bothered until now. There’s just a bunch of torture shows on the other channels, so I watched it.
It’s great. This old skeeze enslaves this guttertrash chick, then he and his pervy buddy make her put on all these costumes and kinky hats, and tell her what to say. It’s pretty cool, what they’re doing.
The chick meets this stalker guy at a kinky hat show they’re having at this oldtimey horse race, and the stalker falls for her because she goes around talking about ass all the time.
They don’t really get into the stalker angle as much as they could have, as much as they would have now, because it was filmed in 1964. It’s a musical, though, so they do give the stalker this big theme song while he’s lurking around the house where the two old skeezes keep the chick locked up. The stalker creeps around the yard, staring at the front door all bug-eyed and singing about how he’s never gonna leave so he can grab her when she comes out.
At the end, the guttertrash chick escapes the house and the stalker guy nearly gets her, but she’s got Stockholm syndrome so she just goes back to the old guy who imprisoned her and he starts right back in making her fetch things while he sits in this big comfortable chair.
