MORE LOVERLY THAN EVER!
HIGH DEFINITION UPGRADE OF ICONIC BELOVED MUSICAL

MY FAIR LADY: 50th Anniversary Edition
Academy Award Winning Classic Arrives October 27 On Blu-ray™+ DVD
Combo Pack With Highest Quality Picture And Sound Ever Released

HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (September 22, 2015) – Experience one of the greatest movie musicals in cinematic history like never before as the eight-time Oscar® winning film arrives in a newly restored, high-definition collection, MY FAIR LADY: 50th ANNIVERSARY EDITION, from CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Media Distribution. The release arrives just in time for the holidays on October 27 as a Blu-ray + DVD Combo Pack, and features a brand new 4k restoration from an 8K scan of the original negative, and other surviving 65mm elements, painstakingly restored by acclaimed film historian and preservationist Robert A. Harris.

Adapted from the original Broadway hit and headlined by Hollywood legends Audrey Hepburn and Rex Harrison, MY FAIR LADY: 50th ANNIVERSARY EDITION arrives in collectible packaging with an entire Blu-ray disc dedicated to 90 minutes of special features including a variety of original trailers and featurettes that were used in theaters to promote the feature film, as well as footage from the film’s Los Angeles and British premieres in 1964.

“MY FAIR LADY is one of the crown jewels in our library,” said Ken Ross, Executive Vice President and General Manager, CBS Home Entertainment. “And now this timeless masterpiece will be presented to a new generation of fans in a quality never before seen or heard.”

Directed by George Cukor, MY FAIR LADY won a staggering eight* Academy Awards including Best Picture. Fifty years after its original release, audiences are still enchanted by the musical that follows elitist linguistic professor Henry Higgins (Harrison) as he makes a wager with his colleague that he can turn a sassy, cockney flower girl Eliza Doolittle (Hepburn) into the toast of English society. Including timeless songs such as “The Rain In Spain,” “I Could Have Danced All Night” and “Get Me To The Church On Time,” MY FAIR LADY remains one of the most celebrated movie musicals in film history.

MY FAIR LADY: 50th ANNIVERSARY EDITION Blu-ray + DVD Combo Pack comes in collectible packaging with an entire Blu-ray disc dedicated to 90 minutes of special features including a variety of original trailers and featurettes that were used in theaters to promote the feature film, as well as footage from the film’s Los Angeles and British premieres in 1964.
