From Back Cover:
Now more loverly than ever on DVD
By George, they've got it! Newly transferred from elements painstakingly restored in 1994, the film version of Lerner and Loewe's My Fair Lady is lavish, loverly and the acclaimed recipient of eight 1964 Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director (George Cukor).
Best Actor Oscar winner Rex Harrison reprises his signature stage role of Henry Higgins, the supremely assured phoeneticist who wagers that under his tutelage, cockney flower girl Eliza Doolittle can pass for a duchess at the Embassy Ball. In one of her best-loved roles, Audrey Hepburn plays Eliza. If ever there was a face the professor could grow accustomed to, it's hers. In Hartford, Hereford and Hampshire (and elsewhere) no one's fairer than My Fair Lady, one of the most irresistible musicals ever.
A good movie, but considering its length (nearly three hours!) and the fact that it is a musical, it's one that I have to be in a certain mood - and have a lot of free time - to watch.
Rated G (MPAA)
