My Fair Lady (1964)

Rex Harrison, Audrey Hepburn, Stanley Holloway

A Film by George Cukor 170 minutes

 

In this beloved adaptation of the original 1913 stage play Pygmalion by George Bernard Shaw, Hepburn plays a sassy, working-class London street vendor, whom an arrogant professor (Rex Harrison) attempts to turn into a sophisticated lady through proper schooling. But, when the humble flower girl blossoms into the toast of Londons elite, her teacher may have a lesson or two to learn himself. Hepburns performance, style, and sweet spirit have made My Fair Lady a timeless classic. The film won eight Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Actor and Best Director.
