Bonnie and Clyde were active in the 1930s, not the 1920s. It's "thief who," not "theif that." "Satirical." "Natural." And "My Fair Lady" is not a retelling of "The Taming of the Shrew": she's not a shrew, they don't get married at either the beginning or the end, and he doesn't abuse her for the purpose of remaking her personality. It is closer to the myth of Pygmalion, who fell in love with the statue of a woman, which came to life as Galatea. "Pygmalion" is, of course, the name of the Shaw play on which "My Fair Lady" is based.

My Fair Lady wasn't based on "Taming of the Shrew", it was based on George Bernard Shaw's "Pygmalion". A Very Potter Musical was never actually on Broadway. And the Sound of Music isn't all about the VonTrapps trying to escape the Nazis. That's literally the last 30 minutes of the movie. Um, Billy Elliot isn't Welsh...
