A British actor famous for his role as Henry Higgins in My Fair Lady. Because he wasn't a very good singer, he had a tendency to shout his way through a song rather than sing it. Thus, his name is now a verb that means to speak-sing because you couldn't carry a tune if it had handles.
Pierce Brosnan Rex Harrison'd his way through every number in Mamma Mia!
