Simply the Best
Verified purchase
Who are the cads who awarded this DVD less than 5 stars? They should be horsewhipped!
Lerner & Loewe’s songs have never left my memory; I’d just started work, nearly 60 years ago when ‘My Fair Lady’ opened in London, just round the corner from me in Drury Lane and everyone was whistling the tunes.
This Blu-Ray disk is a joy with the enhanced colour and sound – my favourite sequence is ‘The Ascot Gavotte’ with the clever lyrics and the supremely bored looks on the faces of the snooty race-goers.
But apart from the songs and the brilliant performances from all the cast there’s lovely one-liners: Colonel Pickering (Wilfred Hyde-White) enquiring if there’s any ‘pline cike’, Professor Higgins (Rex Harrison – not my favourite actor but magnificent in this) in the marbles incident, ‘I’ve plenty more!’ and his dismissive, ‘There you are, she ain’t got no mum and dad’, right through to Eliza’s (Audrey Hepburn) very evocative final lines, ‘I washed me face and ‘ands’.
A luverly disk.

ABSOLUTELY STUNNING 4K REMASTERED REGION FREE BLU RAY IMPORT OF A CLASSIC MUSICAL - RECOMMENDED
Verified purchase
This 50th Anniversary remastered Blu Ray is in a single word STUNNING!....If you are going to buy the blu ray of this classic musical PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU GET THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY REMASTER and NOT some of the other foreign blu ray versions available (at the moment this is not available in the UK - but this US import is REGION FREE) as they are reported to have a dreadful picture image.

The 2:40:1 image is as sharp as a pin, the colour pallette is rich, smooth, vivid and lush with no obvious DNR and the smallest amount of filmic grain that only adds to the pleasure. In short this together with "Hello Dolly", "The Sound of Music" and the remastered 4k "Oklahoma" are probably the 4 best looking blu rays one could own and makes one realise how good HD can and should look - if only other distributers would take the time to ensure their releases looked as good.

The soundtrack too has been given a make-over into 7.1 Dolby True HD sound and is full bodied and enveloping and a joy to the ear. However whilst the film is claimed to be in 7.1 and my THX amp shows that there are indeed 7.1 channels present there is very little that utilises the sound from the side speakers (apart from the occassional burst of music on the opening credits) mainly it's just the 3 front and 2 rear making it in reality just 5.1. and as the 7.1 Dolby True is the only option there is no way for the amp to upscale to a higher number of channels. Not even on the famous wraparound Ascot race sound effect do the sides kick in. Its a shame ....but what we do have here is a fantastic soundtrack anyway. Also upon viewing it there appeared to be a sync problem with the sound but on closer inspection and comparing it to the standard DVD this appears to be only when Audrey Hepburn (well Marnie Nixon) sings - not a case of poor lip syncing by the star as Marnie Nixon's vocals were added AFTER Audrey had sung on the original soundtrack - its simply a case of the sound team not being able to sync the two stars up very well - in The King And I, Nixon was on set with Deborah Kerr the whole time so was more able to match her vocals to perfection - to the point where many beliewved that it was actually Deborah Kerr singing. In the case of My Fair Lady, Rex harrrison's vocals and synced image match perfectly - as does everyone else.

This Steelbook release contains the blu ray of the movie plus a region 1 DVD and a blu ray containing a wealth of extra documentaries and features that are most interesting. Most have apeared before on DVD releases but there are one or two new additions I think (sorry I have not had time to fully check with my Standard DVD version).

Audrey Hepburn never looked as beautiful and Rex Harrisson can "walk down that street again" knowing full well that one of his most treasured performances has been given the classy treatment it deserves.

NEVER MIND THE COVER
Verified purchase
I have been a fan of My Fair Lady since I first saw the film in the 1960's. I have owned it in VHS and in an American import DVD that was made to celebrate its 50th anniversary.
I just bought the Blu ray edition with DTS 7.1 sound and HD.
The cover of the disc is written in Italian but that doesn't matter as the set up allows you to play the language of your choice. I'm not sure why Amazon UK sells this disc with the cover in Italian but as I am Italian speaker it does not matter to me, I suppose it ought to be made clear in the description though.
You can of course see that the cover is in Italian if you zoom it.
On to the disc: the sound has been polished and the colours of the flowers around Covent Garden flower market in the initial introduction show off beautifully as do the costumes.
I noticed that an American Blu ray import is also for sale at a slightly higher price and I wonder if anybody has seen the film on this disc and whether it is better than the European version.
Sometimes there is a difference.

Get accustomed to her face.

Eliza Doolittle (Audrey Hepburn) is a Cockney Girl trying to make a meagre sum by selling flowers to the Rich in the West End of London. Her Father Alfred (Stanley Holloway) doesn't work and only visits her to try and get any money he can to spend on beer. She meets Colonel Pickering (Wilfred Hyde-White) and during this conversation Professor Henry Higgins (Rex Harrison) overhears them and is intrigued by her purely on how she talks and is horrified to hear English spoken in such a way "this is the language of Shakespeare, Milton and The Bible". Higgins bets Pickering that in 6 months he could pass her off as a Duchess at the Embassy Ball by giving Eliza extensive vocal training by bribing her with Chocolates and a luxurious room in his home at Wimpole Street, She begins to dream of a better life and leaves for his home.

As the months pass Higgins tries multiple methods to teach her pronunciation (Some of which are verging on cruelty) while Col. Pickering watches on and warns him not to push her too hard. After a breakthrough he decides that she is ready and should go to his mothers (Gladys Cooper) box at Royal Ascot and initially impresses the upper-class there including Freddy Eynsford-Hill (Jeremy Brett) who falls in love with her, however the façade fails in a humorous way and Eliza is left devastated.

its the day of the ball following a few weeks of hard work and Pickering by now is convinced that the bet was a big mistake and they should stop before all 3 are embarrassed but Higgins is cocksure and has every faith in his ability and methods. His confidence is vindicated when she is a big success and passes the ultimate test along the way, When they return Higgins' ignorance leads to tension between him and Eliza mainly because having become a lady she is left trying to deal with an identity crisis and the uncertainty over her future, You have probably seen this already or you could guess how it ends but suffice to say its a moving ending with one of the greatest songs ever written for a musical.

It features some memorable performances from the two leads. Rex Harrison deservedly won an Oscar for his portrayal of Prof. Higgins I do agree with people who say that the professor does not hate women alone. he even admits it in the film that he treats everyone with the same disdain (apart from Pickering). Being incredibly biased I have to say that the star of the show is definitely Audrey and she is the definitive Eliza Doolittle. Some people knocked her character before the transformation but you cant help but love the roguish charm she gave her ("GARN!") and personally her accent is fine because its set in a romanticized Edwardian England so its immaterial really. When she becomes a lady however few people will argue how spectacular her performance is, Audrey was always modest about her acting but the elegance and vulnerability she brought to it made you feel that she played two separate characters .The cheerful Cockney flower girl and the insecure, fragile educated woman. As good an actress and singer that Julie Andrews is I don't think she has the ability to perform the last few acts like Audrey did. Its a shame she did not win an Oscar because she deserved it for the last scenes alone..quite ironic that Julie won the best actress Oscar (Mary Poppins) when this should have been nominated. Gladys Cooper plays Mrs Higgins with aplomb and Jeremy Brett is wonderful as the lovesick Freddy, its amusing to see Sherlock Holmes in such a different light!

The production was huge and you have to be impressed by the sheer amount of work put into it, if you look at the sets and costumes (provided by Cecil Beaton) the attention to detail is immaculate to the gloves the ladies are wearing. Andre Previn creates a memorable score for this mammoth picture, the modern DVD has a rich video and the sound really gives it justice.

Settle down on a dark night with a cup of something warm and enjoy this audio/visual treat now wouldn't that be loverly?!

My Fair Lady.(1964) Blu-ray Restored Print.
At last a print worthy of a great film. One of the last great musicals .Restored from a 70mm print and a new 7.1 sound remix.
Enjoyed watching it again in all its glory just to see Audrey Hepburn in one of her greatest rolls. Gone is my old DVD copy to a charity shop.

Timeless Classic
Verified purchase
Probably one of the most memorable of all musical film productions, with some of the finest actors of the 20th century many, sadly, no longer with us, particularly the unforgettable Audrey Hepburn, one of the greatest of all female screen legends, renowned for her beauty and elegance.
I was delighted that this dvd has been made available at such a reasonable price on the Amazon.co.uk website - even though the reverse side of the sleeve is in Italian and the cover picture is slightly different. My order was despatched almost instantly from Turin and received within 72 hours. The essential details of perfectly understandable; the dvd plays in English (2.35:1 aspect, region 2 PAL) and the quality of the restoration - as far as I am concerned - is excellent. Technology permitting, this film will now live for generations. Highly recommended for lovers of good quality classic musicals.

Vibrant colours, sound and a whole host of special features
Verified purchase
Has been remastered so contrast and colours and really very good compared to other dvd versions of this I have seen which were faded and dull.

I also liked seeing interviews on the special features disc, plus still photo's interviews at the time, Audrey's versions of 2 of the songs plus lots more.

It cost a good bit more than the single disc versions but if you are a fan then it is well worth spending the extra for this version.

A great buy and very happy.

My Fair Lady is an excellent musical adaptation of Bernard Shaw's Pygmalian

My Fair Lady is an excellent musical adaptation of Bernard Shaw's Pygmalian. The cast was very good indeed. I particularly appreciated Rex Harrison's portrayal of Professor Higgins and that of Stanley Holloway's Mr. Doolittle. Audrey as Eliza was also very good but for me the fact that she did not sing herself spoiled her portrayal a little of Eliza. I would have preferred Julie Andrews. However that is a very personal view. Overall this film stands the test of time.
