From Amazon.co.uk

Hollywood's legendary "woman's director," George Cukor (The Women, The Philadelphia Story), transformed Audrey Hepburn into street-urchin-turned-proper-lady Eliza Doolittle in this film version of the Lerner and Loewe musical. Based on George Bernard Shaw's play Pygmalion, My Fair Lady stars Rex Harrison as linguist Henry Higgins (Harrison also played the role, opposite Julie Andrews, on stage), who draws Eliza into a social experiment that works almost too well. The letterbox edition of this film on video certainly pays tribute to the pageantry of Cukor's set, but it also underscores a certain visual stiffness that can slow viewer enthusiasm just a tad. But it's really star wattage that keeps this film exciting, that and such great songs as "On the Street Where You Live" and "I Could Have Danced All Night." Actor Jeremy Brett, who gained a huge following later in life portraying Sherlock Holmes, is quite electric as Eliza's determined suitor. --Tom Keogh

5.0 out of 5 stars A feast for the eyes and ears! 21 April 2004
By Chrestomanci VINE VOICE
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth every minute 17 Dec 2006
By nickn5
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great extras and a wonderful film 31 May 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Luvvvverly 19 Mar 2003
By Jus
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pygmalion 12 April 2007
By Snail
Format:DVD
My sister and myself are studying George Bernard Shaw's superb play Pygmalion for our upcoming English Literature exam and are both enjoying it. We thought we would watch My Fair Lady just out of interest and to see how the play does.The film does not do justice to Shaws view on womens rights, education and class differences but it is not ment to. It does however do justice to Shaws witty dialogue and excellent characters. Audrey Hepburn is superb as Eliza Doolittle, and so is Rex Harrison as the short tempered Henry Higgins(in spite of his awful singing but that also does justice to his character as Higgins is an unfeeling person).Great performances from Stanley Holloway, Wilfred Hyde-White, Jeremy Brett and Gladys Cooper who play their roles well. The songs also do justice to Shaw. Eliza singing Wouldnt It Be Luverly? reflects the ambition she feels, Alfred singing With A Little Bit O Luck shows his carefree amoral nature and Higgins singing I`m Just an Ordinary Man shows his cold nature all of which are evident in the play. The rest of the songs are also brilliant so are the costumes and sets.

This is not a fully accurate adaptation of the play but it is not meant to be; its just a fun, entertaining film.

Favourite songs are Wouldn't It Be Luverly, On The Street Where You Live and Get Me To The Church on Time.
