My fair lady by George Cukor( Visual )

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

Angel face by Otto Preminger( Visual )

6 editions published between 1952 and 2007 in English and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of Preminger's 'moodily fluid studies in perverse psychology' made at Fox in the forties and early fifties, here with the recurring noir theme of fatally obsessive relationships. Characteristically Preminger plays down the hysteria inherent in melodrama and does not employ noir chiaroscuro. Mitchum's almost dreamy restraint has the effect of heightening the sense of fatalism. Simmons' real obsession is her father. Outwardly angelic but inwardly predatory, her very blankness, suggestive of icy sexuality runs counter to the femme fatale stereotype
