a beautiful story of a woman transformed and the benefits/consequences it holds. I really loved this story and how it was portrayed on screen, in a somewhat abstract style of juxtaposing her lessons between her dreams. Leslie Howard is amazing here and plays his character of Higgins incredibly well. Definitely a lost gem on the Criterion archives!
One of the best films I've ever seen. I really love Howard's acting and his professor Higgins is a devilish, terrifying and totally amusing figure. This original version depicts better the real gap in British society and underlines that both Eliza and Higgins are two outsiders. w Leopardi
A classic with great performances by the whole cast. The satiric perfume of the play against the hypocrisy of the Britiish upper-class is a lot more present in this version than in the Cukor's sweetened version. No wonder if one knows that George Bernard Shaw wrote himself the adaptation of his play in 1938. Recommended.
