The Broadway cast recording of the musical My Fair Lady was released as an album on April 2, 1956.  The songs were composed by Frederick Loewe with lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner and conducted by Franz Allers , while the cast included stars Julie Andrews and Rex Harrison . The album became a massive seller, topping the charts on the US Billboard 200 for fifteen weeks at different times in 1956 (eight consecutive weeks), 1957 , 1958 and 1959 .  In the UK, upon its release in 1958 , the album reached for 19 consecutive weeks and became the biggest-selling album of the year.  The album was released on Columbia Records , whose President, Goddard Lieberson provided the $375,000 needed to stage the show in return for the rights to the Cast recording.  The album was later re-issued on Compact disc in 1988 and has been re-released a number of times since.  It is currently available with bonus tracks.
Meanwhile, being replaced by Hepburn was arguably the best thing that could have happened to Julie Andrews: It freed her up to star in a little movie called Mary Poppins . At the 1965 Golden Globes, Andrews was nominated for Mary Poppins , and Hepburn was nominated for My Fair Lady . Andrews was victorious, and after claiming her award, Andrews wrapped up her speech by saying, “Finally, my thanks to a man who made a wonderful movie and who made all this possible in the first place: Mister Jack Warner.” To his credit, he laughed right along with everyone else. Andrews would go on to win an Oscar for her performance in Mary Poppins , too.
