5.0 out of 5 stars Delicious experience!, 4 Nov 2013
This review is from: Pygmalion [1938] [DVD] (DVD)
It's a delicious experience to
watch ,the same week, both
"Pygmalion"(1938) by Anthony Asquith
and Leslie Howard ,and "My Fair
Lady" (1964) by George Cukor. Both are
excellent film adaptations of
G.B.Shaw's play, but to me,in
spite of the splendid music and
the stunning costumes of "My Fair
Lady", the simple, black and white
version of 1938 seems even more original.

Anyway, in both versions there is a
fantastic display of talent: David Lean
editing the B and W version of 1938,
very young (and not yet "Dame") Wendy
Hiller playing Eliza Doolittle,Leslie
Howard, a perfect Professor Higgins,
much more at his place here than in the
perfectly miscast part of Ashley Wilkes in
"Gone With the Wind"!

"Pygmalion" is really a film to discover and
enjoy, a film that aged very well!

Five stars.
