“My Fair Lady” (Warner Bros., 1964)

George Bernard Shaw’s plays “Pygmalion” made it to Broadway first in 1914 and was filmed in 1938. Lerner and Lowe kept much of the dialogue of the original but added songs and gave the film a brand new name. The musical premiered on Broadway in 1956 and made a star of a young Julie Andrews. Andrews was not held over for the film version–Audrey Hepburn took the lead–but Rex Harrison marvelously was. (Color, 170 minutes, National Film Registry, 2018).

“Labyrinth” (Henson/Lucas, 1986)

David Bowie and some of Jim Henson’s most exotic puppets populate this elaborate fantasy with Jennifer Connelley as a young girl transported far, far away to rescue her young brother. (Color, 101 minutes).
