My fair lady by George Cukor( Visual )

48 editions published between 1964 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 4,407 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
The Oscar Wilde collection by Oscar Wilde( Visual )

8 editions published between 1995 and 2008 in English and held by 661 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A collection of four of Oscar Wilde's masterpieces, and a 1995 documentary about his life, his relationship with Alfred Douglas and the trials that destroyed his career. Includes reflections by Wilde's grandson Merlin Holland, and Douglas' grandniece Alice Douglas. The Importance of Being Earnest: "Filled with wit and wisdom, The Importance of being Earnest tells the tale of Jack Worthing and Algernon Moncrieff. Jack has invented an imaginary brother, Ernest, whom he uses as an excuse to escape from his dull home in the country and frolic in town. Algernon uses a similar technique, only in reverse: his imaginary friend, Bunbury, provides a convenient and frequent method of taking adventures in the country. However, their deceptions eventually cross paths, resulting in a series of crises that threaten to spoil their romantic pursuits; Jack of his love Gwendolyn Fairfax, and Algernon of his belle Cecily Cardew." The picture of Dorian Gray: "Oscar Wilde's only novel, The picture of Dorian Gray, is a chilling melodrama, which scandalized polite society when first published in 1890. Dorian Gray is a wealthy English gentleman who gradually sinks into a life of dissipation and crime. Enthralled with his own physical beauty, Dorian purchases eternal youth at the expense of his soul. While Dorian remains young and unchanged by his hedonistic lifestyle, his portrait hides the terrible truth."
