This day dec 13th 2011 i again have been smitten by an actress discovered on TCM. It started with Vivien Leigh then Hedy Lamarr totally awestruck by Elizabeth Taylor's beauty in "A Place in The Sun" and now on a different level and just as intimate Wendy Hiller. Waking up early this morning I caught the last half of Pygmalion. To say the least...Ms Hiller attractiveness and performance grew and grew and grew on me with every scene. Im looking foward to seeing more of her work. Wouldve been great to see her on broadway. Curses Robert Osborne lol.

I grew up loving "My Fair Lady". My only experience was with Audrey Hepburn's portrayal, having never seen the Broadway production. I was unprepared for how perfect Wendy Hiller was in the role. She captured the attitude and nuances of inflection as only a native Englishwoman could do. I heard strength of character in her version I never got from Hepburn's, and was left truly believing she was capable of making it on her own at the end. She was much more a match for Leslie Howard than Hepburn for Rex Harrison, and a much better student of phonetics. It was no stretch visualizing her with her own practice. Like other reviewers I fell in love with her at once, as did Shaw himself. Her arched eyebrows and upright carriage spoke of native grace and strenth transcending birth and class. I'm happy to join Freddy as her hopeless admirer.
Wendy Hiller Shines

Wendy Hillers performance as Eliza Doolittle in Pygmalion is classic. She captures the essence of Elizas humble roots as she is transformed from a poor Covent Garden flower girl into a woman of elegance and grace. But it is obvious that both the character and the actress were women of true elegance and grace from the start. This film and Wendy Hiller are cinematic joys to experience.

Wendy Hiller was the sweetest and loveliest woman I've ever seen, an incredible actress, and as Eliza Doolittle in "Pygmalion", stole my heart.
