"After [Loewe and Lerner's] less successful next collaboration, Paint Your Wagon (1951)... they wrote My Fair Lady (1956), an adaptation of George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion, the longest-running show of its era and one of the most highly regarded of all musicals..."

"... Loewe’s successful evocation of Scottish melodies in Brigadoon, Western folk songs in Paint Your Wagon (the only Lerner and Loewe musical with an American locale), and British music hall and French cabaret tunes in My Fair Lady and Gigi, respectively, camouflaged a distinctive personal style, which demonstrated a predilection, even in the Western Paint Your Wagon, for a European rather than an American vernacular musical language."
