George Bernard Shaw wrote the Academy Award-winning screenplay for this adaptation of his comedy which later became 'My Fair Lady'. Leslie Howard is Professor Henry Higgins and Wendy Hiller is Cockney flower-peddler Eliza Doolittle, about to be transformed into a 'lady of society' on a gambler's whim. The first feature film to use the word 'bloody', also stars Wilfrid Lawson as Eliza's dad. Future director David Lean was the editor.
