Pygmalion2

 

When George Bernard Shaw got the news in 1939 that his screen adaptation of his play Pygmalion had won an Academy Award, the playwright’s reaction was Higgins-like:  “It’s an insult for them to offer me any honor, as if they had never heard of me before – and it’s very likely they never have.   They might as well send some honor to [King] George for being King of England.”  You just can’t please some people.  Watch this classic comedy, which was later adapted into the musical My Fair Lady, by clicking here.
