Product Details


Product Description

Amazon.ca

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

3.0 out of 5 stars A Major Disappointment July 19 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I am a big fan of this movie and that is why I gave it 3 stars as the transfer to Blu-ray stands as one of the two most disappointing Blu-rays I have ever purchased. What were they thinking? Having been shot in Super-Panavision, this should have been stunning. However, while watching it, I was simply stunned. There are many sequences where the sides of the screen fade to a sort of milky while colour, especially when there is something dark like Higgins' study, or when Eliza returns to her old haunt of Covent Garden. What happened? It is not noticeable in bright scenes like the ball, or the Ascot Race, however, even in those sections, coming from a 70mm source, the picture should have more detail. (Look at Lawrence of Arabia if you want to see what is possible.) I saw the film restoration of this that was done in the early 90's and it was spectacular. How could someone let a classic, Oscar winning picture like this get into such a state again? Is it unwatchable? No. Just be prepared....possibly to also boost your colour a little bit. The sound is quite good, but again not up to the standard I would have expected and someone went way too heavy on the bass. This is one of the few films I have to turn my subwoofer DOWN for. If you love the film this is the best there is on offer at the moment, but just be prepared to be less than wowed.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Fair Lady [1964] [Blu-ray] [US Import] July 17 2014
By Andrew C. Miller TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
My Fair Lady [1964] [Blu-ray] [US Import] HEPBURN AND HARRISON SHINE IN THIS STUNNING OSCAR® WINNING MUSICAL!

AUDREY HEPBURN has never been more “lovely” than in this breath-taking musical extravaganza that won 8 Academy Awards® in 1964, including Best Picture*.

For the first time on Blu-ray, this beloved adaption of the Broadway stage hit. Starring AUDREY HEPBURN as a sassy working-class London street vendor flower girl, whom an arrogant professor REX HARRISON attempts to turn AUDREY HEPBURN into a sophisticated lady through proper schooling.

Performance, style and sweet spirit have made My Fair lady a timeless classic.

Unfortunately I did not realise that it was coming from Europe and therefore would be the wrong format for the American continent.
I guess my fault but it is pity this is not made clearer in the advertising of the product.
I can now only play it on my computer and next time will be careful not to order DVD's from a European based company

2.0 out of 5 stars 2-disc or not two discs May 26 2004
Format:DVD
WARNING: All the five stars refer to the movie itself, and does not address the issue of whether paying for the second disc is a rip-off. Five stars for the single disc version was richly deserved. I had half expected the 2 disc version to have DTS since they shifted virtually all the extra features from disc 1 to disc two. The only thing left on disc 1 was the movie, same commentary, same subtitles and audio track. For some inexplicable reason, the single disc version was among the Amazon top 100 discs in 2002 for some time, although it has been
out since the mid-1990s. Amazon's editor was correct when he said the main attraction of the 2nd disc was the 58 minute Documentary hosted by Jeremy Brett. That is about all, folks, and it was a pretty boring documentary. A concise version of this documentary would be "The Fairest Fair Lady" which is already in the single disc version.
You already have the AUDREY HEPBURN VOCALS in the single disc version. The rest of the stuff in disc 2 is usually given away FREE, like in Gladiator, Last Samurai, Master and Commander, where one viewing of the stills is more than enough.
Now, the sellers of disc 2 have actually REMOVED the CAST AND CREW section from the one disc version. This Cast and Crew with filmographies and biographies contain a huge chunk of valuable information including the fact that Audrey's given name was Edda, not Audrey. Do not throw away your one disc version. If you bought the 2 disc version, you might want to buy the single- disc version to find out where Audrey Hepburn was born, won the Oscar and got nominated. What were the other actors like Wilfred Hyde-White doing other than My Fair Lady.
I tell you what I like about the 2 Disc version:
