In the week following the opening of a new production at English National Opera, the first in London for over 20 years, and the day after Liz Robertson, (Alan J Lerner’s widow)’s visit to the Festival, we are delighted to offer a rare opportunity to see this classic British film version of Lerner and Lowe’s My Fair Lady on the big screen.
Based on G B Shaw’s Pygmalion, My Fair Lady tells the story of Eliza Doolittle, a young cockney flower peddler who meets by chance Henry Higgins. Higgins is a linguistics professor who is determined to prove that he can teach anyone to speak in such a way that they will be accepted by the highest ranks of society.
This charming classic features such familiar songs as I Could Have Danced All Night, Get Me to the Church on Time, Wouldn’t It Be Loverly?, On the Street Where You Live, The Rain in Spain, and I’ve Grown Accustomed to Her Face.
Directed by George Cukor
With Audrey Hepburn, Rex Harrison, Stanley Holloway, Wilfrid Hyde-White
