A priceless classic, My Fair Lady
has become one of the most popular musicals of all time. Based on George Bernard Shaw's 1913 play Pygmalion
, the film swept the Academy Awards. Cecil Beaton's lavish sets and costumes and Lerner and Loewe's winning score became the background for George Cukor's striking mix of styles that ranged from the fantastic to the abstract in his telling of the tale of a waif who's educated into being a lady.
Egotistical linguist Professor Henry Higgins bets his friend, Colonel Hugh Pickering, that he can transform Cockney flower girl Eliza Doolittle in time for an important society ball. His gamble could pay off--but the spirited Eliza is more of a handful than the Professor could have predicted.
As she slowly becomes more refined, and less reliant upon him, Higgins realizes, to his confusion, that he can't live without her.
The film was nominated for 12 Oscars and won eight, including Best Picture and Director.
