A friend told me about the movie called Pygmalion, like the story My Fair Lady without all the songs. It’s a wonderful story, great acting, and fun to watch. So glad we bought it!

“Pygmalion” is the 1913 play by George Bernard Shaw that was released as “My Fair Lady” decades after this 1938 film. Although the music is great in “My Fair Lady”, the cast is much better in this non-musical version. This is a wonderful film with a wonderful performance by Dame Wendy Hiller.

This is a screen adaptation of a George Bernard Shaw 1913 stage play based on Greek mythology. Shaw also scripted this movie adaptation.

Windy Hiller plays the part of Eliza Doolittle, a cockney flower seller.

Professor Henry Higgins (Leslie Howard) scholar in phonetics bets a colleague, Colonel Pickering (Scott Sunderland) that he can pass her off as a duchess in six months by adjusting her speech pattern to proper-English.

This is a classic story and played my major actors of their time and ours. Windy Hillier is also famous for her role in the “Major Barbara” (1941), many Pressburger and Powel movies, and even into today’s era with “The Kingfisher” (1983) as Evelyn. Windy Hiller died 14 May 2003.

You will also enjoy the remake of this film as a musical “My Fair Lady” (1964)

This film is a must for your collection.

After a lifetime of watching the musical and singing those great songs, I finally obtained the REAL story — and what a treat! THIS is theater at its best. Leslie Howard and Wendy Hiller play their parts with such excellence and class that the musical version seems like a rather overdone remake in comparison. No extravagant costumes or snazzy tunes are needed with acting of this high caliber. Truly a necessary addition to the collection of anyone who appreciates pure top notch theater.
