Pygmalion, The Original My Fair Lady, 1938

Please fast forward to 3 mins and 40 seconds or watch the whole thing if you have time. It is a George_Bernard_Shaw masterpiece. A beautiful, thoughtful, funny, witty, charming film. A few things to note, Professor Higgins' smoking jacket that he comes down to breakfast in and the gentrified formal wear (white tie), detachable collars and of course my favourites, the top hats. For those of you who saw Whatever Works with Larry David, directed by Woody Allen, you will know that Boris Yellnikof attempted to perform a Pygmalion on Melodie St Anne Celestine to no avail. But you know, I don't think Boris possessed half the charm or the misogyny that we see exhibited in Professor Higgins which makes for a more interesting dynamic when he finally falls in love with Miss Doolittle and she with him. 'Now, pass me my slippers!'
