“The difference between a lady and a flower girl is not how she behaves, but how she is treated”

A FAVOURITE on the Guildford Fringe calendar, The Fringe Film Club runs on the last Sunday of every month.  As part of Guildford Fringe End of Summer Season, head to the Back Room of the Star Inn for this month’s film, My Fair Lady on Sunday, September 24.

My Fair Lady is a 1964 American musical film adapted from the Lerner and Loewe eponymous stage musical based on the 1913 stage play Pygmalion by George Bernard Shaw.

With a screenplay by Alan Jay Lerner and directed by George Cukor, the film depicts a poor Cockney flower seller named Eliza Doolittle who overhears an arrogant phonetics professor, Henry Higgins, as he casually wagers that he could teach her to speak “proper” English, thereby making her presentable in the high society of Edwardian London.

The film stars Audrey Hepburn and Rex Harrison as Eliza Doolittle and Henry Higgins respectively, with Stanley Holloway, Gladys Cooper and Wilfrid Hyde-White in supporting roles.

A critical and commercial success, it won eight Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Actor and Best Director.  In 1998, the American Film Institute named it the 91st greatest American film of all time.

You’re required to Doolittle other than order a drink, pull up a chair, revel in nostalgia and enjoy your Sunday evening in 1950s Edwardian London.  Now wouldn’t that be loverly?
