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 Cukor: the figure is framed in a Hollywood landscape. He was perhaps the most celebrated American director of his time. The man who gave most of his life to making movies (about fifty of them) also managed to live in a very personal, independent, and, for the most part, satisfied way. The life and the work were partners, and surprisingly happy ones. From this candid, intelligent series of interviews emerges his personal biography.--Adapted from dust jacket
