Pygmalion DVD


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?

British drama based on the play by George Bernard Shaw, in which a flower girl with a thick cockney accent named Eliza Doolittle (Twiggy) happens to cross paths with a phoneticist named Henry Higgins (Robert Powell). Higgins convinces Eliza that he can turn her into a lady by teaching her how to restructure her language and accent, and also focusing on her overall conduct. Can he turn Eliza into the eloquent young woman she desires to be to allow her to fulfil her dreams?
