British film and fashion icon Twiggy gives a breezy performance as Cockney flower-seller Eliza Doolittle, with Robert Powell co-starring as Professor Higgins in this special production of George Bernard Shaw's classic play, which formed the basis for the hit musical and film My Fair Lady. Co-starring noted character players Ronald Fraser, Arthur English and Mona Washbourne, this memorable adaptation of Pygmalion was first screened in 1981 as part of Yorkshire Television's Celebrity Playhouse anthology. Eliza Doolittle is the common girl who wants to be a lady. Henry Higgins, Professor of Phonetics, is the teacher who swears that, given six months, he can pass her off as a duchess. Those six months are, for Eliza, terrifying, turbulent, occasionally tender; for Higgins, they are either exciting or boring, depending on his mood. Between two such very different people, what possible relationship can exist?from£10.00 | RRP:
