As of June 2009, Warner Home Video's rights to the "My Fair Lady" movie have expired. So grab the DVD while you can!

My Fair Lady is being reissued by Paramount in October. Always wondered why Paramount didn't get it when CBS was still part of Viacom; apparently CBS wanted Warner (who originally made it, but under its film-rights agreement had to give it back to CBS, who owned the play, after 7 years) to handle it at that time. Since Sumner Redstone (thru National Amusements) still controls both CBS & Viacom despite their split, the synergy remains appropriate.

However, we don't know yet what its transfer quality will be; if they do a new transfer (and the 2004 version is any indication), it may be of lesser quality than this one, which came out only 4 years after the 1994 restoration. (Edit: It seems the 1994 print may have degraded significantly between the 1998 & 2004 transfers; it's unlikely to improve for the 2009 edition, especially since Paramount is *not* releasing it on Blu-ray yet.)
