Restored in 4K from 8K scans of original 65mm elements with 96K resolution 7.1 Dolby TrueHD audio, this 50th ANNIVERSARY EDITION celebrates the breathtaking musical extravaganza that won 8 Academy Awards®, including Best Picture*. This beloved adaptation of the Broadway stage hit stars AUDREY HEPBURN as Eliza Doolittle, a sassy, working-class London street vendor, and REX HARRISON as the elitist Professor Higgins, who attempts to turn Eliza into a sophisticated lady through proper tutoring. But, when the humble flower girl blossoms into the toast of London society, her teacher may have a lesson or two to learn himself.

The 50th Anniversary Edition is 'restored in 4K from 8K scans of original 65 mm elements with 96 K resolution and 7.1 Dolby TrueHD audio'.
This version was truly a joy to watch,listen and appreciate what a great musical this is.
The print is pristine,the audio is crystal clear and booming and there is a whole separate disc of extras.
This is a masterpiece, more and more in this incredible anniversary edition.
I can't talk about the movie that is known as the most perfect musical together with Mary Poppins and the Sound of Music.
The quality Video:
Simply perfect. It seems to be a new movie. So in this way they don't need to create remake (I'm really worried for Mary Poppins). I prefer they majors invest on restoration of masterpiece. As a work of art, a movie need cure and to be adapted to the new technologies.
Great in English, Good in French and Japanese. Sound mono in Italian (pity because the singing voice is really amazing). Not good audio in Spanish.
I bought this Blu Ray although I had the DVD and the Blu Ray (the pink one). While I'm writing I'm listening On the street where you live. I have to say that it is incredibly beautiful. It is a great gift, is it a precious movie that have to stay in my collection.
It is more the "Loverly".
There is, however, a serious problem, apparently with the encoding of the Blu Ray disc - at 1:33 into the film, just as Freddy is about to break into 'On The Street Where You Live,' the sound drops out completely for the rest of the film. Oddly, if you back it up a few seconds and hit PLAY again, the film will go forward without a hitch, but the dropout always occurs, always at the same point, when started from the beginning.
Now it might be an idiosyncrasy specific to my (Sony) player, but I have hundreds of Blu Ray movies, and 'My Fair Lady' is the only one that does this, and it does it every time. I'd send it back for a different copy, but in my experience, when there's a defect in a Blu Ray disc, it's in the entire production run, not just one copy.
I can see and almost feel the textures of the fabrics. Pure visual fidelity. Haven't seen a re-mastering done so well for a long time.
