synopsis

My Fair Lady, winner of eight Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Actor, and Best Director, is arguably the greatest movie musical of all-time. A jewel of a film and one that certainly ranks high among the greatest motion pictures ever made and having recently enjoyed a pioneering restoration effort in time for the 50th anniversary of the original Australia/New Zealand theatrical release, My Fair Lady is now looking more “loverly” than ever!

Responsible for the restoration is world renowned film preservationist Robert A. Harris, whose work to restore films like The Godfather, Lawrence of Arabia, Spartacus, & Vertigo have earned him well-deserved praise within the industry.

This gloriously witty adaptation of the Broadway musical about Professor Henry Higgins, who takes a bet from Colonel Pickering that he can transform unrefined, dirty Cockney flower girl Eliza Doolittle into a lady, and fool everyone into thinking she really is one.
