My Fair Lady (1964) 2 x DVD9
On one ordinary evening in London, phonetics expert Professor Henry Higgins (Rex Harrison, Dr. Doolittle) makes a claim that he could transform a lower-class flower girl like Eliza Doolittle (Audrey Hepburn, Breakfast at Tiffany's) into an esteemed member of high society in no less than six months. It's a throwaway boast, but the next day Eliza decides to make the pompous professor prove his worth. She visits his house and demands that he transform her into a proper lady. Henry resists at first, but eventually relents after a bit of encouragement from his colleague Col. Pickering (Wilfred Hyde-White, The Third Man). Slowly but surely, Henry begins the long, torturous process of transforming Eliza's lower-class accent and grammatical errors into the speech of a refined citizen. However, he may be ill-equipped to deal with the results of his experiment.
