"Any fool can play tragedy", said the great eighteenth-century actor David Garrick, "but comedy, sir, is a damned serious business". Sir Rex Harrison addressed himself to the serious business of making other people laugh, and after gaining success in many plays and movies, he appeared in the role of Henry Higgins in one of the most popular plays ever, My Fair Lady. Here is his warm and humorous memoir.
