we thought this flick was a scream... some of the dialogue is not to be missed (with a bernard shaw screenplay you can't go wrong). leslie howard queens it up like there's no tomorrow - just shows how the "leading man" norm has changed in the past 70 years. wendy hiller is great as eliza doolittle - especially good in the scene where eliza gets her first proper bath (from a stern and vaguely lesbian-ish housekeeper). overall if you like old flicks with amazing costumes (the evening gowns are awesome) and witty dialogue you will love this one. our only complaint - the end drags a bit.
