Arrogant, irascible, and misogynistic professor of phonetics Henry Higgins believes that the accent and tone of one's voice determines a person's prospects in society. He boasts to a new acquaintance, Colonel Hugh Pickering--also an expert in phonetics--that he could teach any woman to speak so "properly" that he could pass her off as a duchess at an embassy ball. He chooses as an example a sassy, young working-class London flower seller from the slums, Eliza Doolittle, who has a strong Cockney accent. Can Higgins turn Eliza into a duchess? And will Eliza care to remain a lady for long? When the humble flower girl blossoms into the toast of London's elite, her teacher may have a lesson or two to learn himself

George Stevens : a filmmaker's journey( Visual )

2 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A film biography of a movie director usually includes conventional genre trappings, like clips of great scenes and memories of old colleagues, as indeed this film does. Mainly, this is an engrossing tour through the George Stevens career that provides a greater understanding of his background, talent, creative preoccupations, and especially the experiences in World War II that irrevocably changed his approach to film making. As head of the Special Coverage unit documenting the war on film, Stevens took the only known color footage of the ground war in Europe, including the liberation of Paris and the horrors of Dachau. If his movies hold a mirror up to America, it is because his personal principles paralleled the highest aspirations of this country. In his films, Stevens offered as much insight on American life and character as he could muster
