A snobbish phonetics professor agrees to a wager that he can take a flower girl and make her presentable in high society.
Renowned film restorer (and Playhouse board member) Robert Harris presents the restoration of the classic “My Fair Lady”, winner of the Academy Award for Best Picture of 1964 and starring Rex Harrison and Audrey Hepburn. The film is presented in its original format with an intermission.
