My Fair Lady (Original screenplay for the 1964 film)
Burbank, CA: Warner Brothers, 1963. Revised Estimating Script for the 1964 film. Brief notation in holograph ink on one page. Based on George Bernard Shaw's 1912 play, "Pygmalion," at one time the longest-running Broadway musical (as "My Fair Lady"). Cockney flower girl Eliza Doolittle (Hepburn) meets linguistic expert Henry Higgins (Harrison), and, after a tirade against "verbal class distinction," Higgins tells his companion that he could transform Eliza into a proper lady, simply by teaching her proper English. Winner of eight Academy Awards, including Best Picture, and nominated for another four. Cukor, who was fired from working on the 1939 film "Gone With the Wind" due to his homosexuality (Clark Gable proclaimed "I won't be direct by a fairy!"), earned an Academy Award for his direction. Hepburn's musical sequences were dubbed by Marni Nixon. Tan titled wrappers, noted as ESTIMATING SCRIPT on the front wrapper, rubber-stamped copy No. 63, dated March 15, 1963.
