DAZZLING RESTORATION!
Directed by George Cukor
Starring Audrey Hepburn & Rex Harrison

(1964) In George Cukor’s Oscar-winning film of Lerner and Loewe’s musical take on George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion, misogynistic linguist Rex Harrison bets that he can transform cockney guttersnipe Audrey Hepburn into a lady. DCP. Approx. 174 min.

Reviews

“A MUST SEE FOR THE ENTIRE FAMILY! Audrey Hepburn is resplendent… With the magnetic performance of Rex Harrison as the centerpiece, the literate lyrics of Alan Jay Lerner as brainteasers, and Cecil Beaton’s incredible costume designs and sets as window dressing, My Fair Lady is a treat every family should share.”
– Leonard Maltin, Family Film Guide

“Audrey Hepburn, with an invaluable assist from Marni Nixon’s singing voice, is a paradigm of delight… Visually Cukor structures the film as an ascent to abstraction, moving from the grubbily naturalistic Covent Garden set to the pastel-colored, untextured ethereality of the Ascot and embassy ball sequences, and then as a slow descent back to a richly toned, vibrant earth, in the form of Professor Higgins’s bachelor quarters with their organic, Art Nouveau details — the flower forms of Eliza’s old life now embedded in the décor.”
– Dave Kehr, The New York Times
