Pompous phonetics Professor Henry Higgins (Sir Rex Harrison) is so sure of his abilities that he takes it upon himself to transform a Cockney working-class girl into someone who can pass for a cultured member of high society. His subject turns out to be the lovely Eliza Doolittle (Audrey Hepburn), who agrees to speech lessons to improve her job prospects. Higgins and Eliza clash, then form an unlikely bond, one that is threatened by aristocratic suitor Freddy Eynsford-Hill (Jeremy Brett)

The 2:40:1 image is as sharp as a pin, the colour pallette is rich, smooth, vivid and lush with no obvious DNR and the smallest amount of filmic grain that only adds to the pleasure. In short this together with "Hello Dolly", "The Sound of Music" and the remastered 4k "Oklahoma" are probably the 4 best looking blu rays one could own and makes one realise how good HD can and should look - if only other distributers would take the time to ensure their releases looked as good.
The soundtrack too has been given a make-over into 7.1 Dolby True HD sound and is full bodied and enveloping and a joy to the ear. However whilst the film is claimed to be in 7.1 and my THX amp shows that there are indeed 7.1 channels present there is very little that utilises the sound from the side speakers (apart from the occassional burst of music on the opening credits) mainly it's just the 3 front and 2 rear making it in reality just 5.1. and as the 7.1 Dolby True is the only option there is no way for the amp to upscale to a higher number of channels. Not even on the famous wraparound Ascot race sound effect do the sides kick in. Its a shame ....but what we do have here is a fantastic soundtrack anyway. Also upon viewing it there appeared to be a sync problem with the sound but on closer inspection and comparing it to the standard DVD this appears to be only when Audrey Hepburn (well Marnie Nixon) sings - not a case of poor lip syncing by the star as Marnie Nixon's vocals were added AFTER Audrey had sung on the original soundtrack - its simply a case of the sound team not being able to sync the two stars up very well - in The King And I, Nixon was on set with Deborah Kerr the whole time so was more able to match her vocals to perfection - to the point where many beliewved that it was actually Deborah Kerr singing. In the case of My Fair Lady, Rex harrrison's vocals and synced image match perfectly - as does everyone else.
This Steelbook release contains the blu ray of the movie plus a region 1 DVD and a blu ray containing a wealth of extra documentaries and features that are most interesting. Most have apeared before on DVD releases but there are one or two new additions I think (sorry I have not had time to fully check with my Standard DVD version).
Audrey Hepburn never looked as beautiful and Rex Harrisson can "walk down that street again" knowing full well that one of his most treasured performances has been given the classy treatment it deserves.
I also liked seeing interviews on the special features disc, plus still photo's interviews at the time, Audrey's versions of 2 of the songs plus lots more.
It cost a good bit more than the single disc versions but if you are a fan then it is well worth spending the extra for this version.
A great buy and very happy.
