Format: DVD
If you're considering buying this DVD, the chances are that you are already familiar with this fabulous film and don't need a synopsis. However, for those who aren't: This Lerner & Loewe musical is based on Shaw's Pygmalion and is the story of Eliza, a common flower girl, who, wanting more out of life, enlists the services of a professor of phonetics to train her to talk like a lady. Professor Higgins takes up the challenge, planning to pass her off as a duchess at an embassy ball. But the results are not as either anticipates ...
Now for the important bit: As I said, you're probably already familiar with the film, having seen it on countless bank holiday TV broadcasts. So, why buy the DVD? The answer is simple: Firstly, it has been restored to full-colour wide-screen splendour ... and the difference compared to standard terrestrial broadcast is significant. If you have an interest in set/stage design, the full view of the marvellous interiors is breath-taking; Higgins' library, Mrs Higgins' stunning white Macintosh-style conservatory and breakfast room, and if costumes are your passion, the Cecil Beaton dresses in the ascot scene are dazzling. All need to be seen in full restored wide-screen splendour to be fully appreciated.
Secondly, the extras make this DVD well worth having. The documentary is slightly dated, but well worth seeing; the commentaries are a little dry but interesting enough; but the rare opportunity to see Audrey Hepburn singing her own songs makes this DVD a must-have. It's common knowledge that Audrey Hepburn's voice was dubbed by Marni Nixon, but if you've ever wondered why, this DVD allows you to judge for yourself whether the decision was right or not. Although some vocal weaknesses are evident, her lively rendition of 'Wouldn't it be Loverly' is delightful ... and I'm personally glad that these recordings have not been lost, but are available for all to enjoy.
Buy this DVD now and sing along to your heart's content!

This DVD sat on my shelf a long time waiting to be watched - I never had the inclination to sit through 165 minutes (2 hours 45 mins!) of a musical I had seen rather too often at Christmas when younger. Well, I eventually did, and am I glad I did! The careful restoration of the original Panavision 70mm film has paid dividends in the quality of what you see on screen - a lavish, colourful, stunning musical which bears very little resemblance (thankfully) to the grainy faded TV screening I remember from years ago.

The sound quality is also fantastic (the .1 of the 5.1 Digital even gets used once), and for those who wish, you can even listen in the 'Extras' to Audrey Hepburn singing two of the numbers herself, rather than the dubbed voice used in the film proper.

A 55 minute documentary on the making of My Fair Lady (and the painstaking restoration of the nearly-lost-for-ever film) makes for interesting viewing.

All in all, well worth every minute spent watching, and certainly deserving of a place on the DVD shelf.

Let's face it you're buying this film because you have already seen it and like so many others you love it to bits.
The reason to specifically buy this version of the film are entirely based around the extras. Audrey Hepburn's vocal track and the documentary of the making of My Fair Lady (fronted by Jeremy Brett who played Freddy) are the highlights for me. For those with the home TV equipment to allow them to view it properly the restored picture and sound are a delight.
For those that aren't interested in what went in to making this film, save some money and get the basic version for £6-7.00. But for me this is more than worth the extra money.

I have been a fan of My Fair Lady since I first saw the film in the 1960's. I have owned it in VHS and in an American import DVD that was made to celebrate its 50th anniversary.
I just bought the Blu ray edition with DTS 7.1 sound and HD.
The cover of the disc is written in Italian but that doesn't matter as the set up allows you to play the language of your choice. I'm not sure why Amazon UK sells this disc with the cover in Italian but as I am Italian speaker it does not matter to me, I suppose it ought to be made clear in the description though.
You can of course see that the cover is in Italian if you zoom it.
On to the disc: the sound has been polished and the colours of the flowers around Covent Garden flower market in the initial introduction show off beautifully as do the costumes.
I noticed that an American Blu ray import is also for sale at a slightly higher price and I wonder if anybody has seen the film on this disc and whether it is better than the European version.
Sometimes there is a difference.

Format: DVD
I was always slightly suspicious of people who enjoyed musicals.
My ambivalence, however, was thrown off within minutes - "Oh wouldn't it be luvverly?" - the story's glorious opener that hurls you into the funny-ridiculous world inhabited by chimney sweeps, costermongers and gents in top hat and tails, prancing around Covent Garden. Thereafter, a medley of toe-tapping classics are infused into the story. This may explain why many people at work are now no longer talking to me, having upset them with incessant humming...
Rex Harrison is excellent playing the domineering (if not rancorous) Professor Higgins whose will and blinding ego drive him to turn a street urchin into a lady using elocution as the key hallmark of social climbing. Audrey Hepburn glows as Eliza. Forever will she remain the benchmark for beauty and grace. Here she gives a wonderful performance and, though most of her singing scenes have been dubbed, commands her time on scene using her stature and honey voice.
A film you should watch if you need a change of pace and atmosphere to contemporary pictures.
