Pygmalion / Ludwig Berger / Fiction / 93 min / 1937

Dutch film version of G.B. Shaw’s celebrated play about a language professor’s attempts at turning a flowergirl into a lady. Linguist Henry Higgins has bet his friend colonel Pickering that his elocution exercises will eradicate the vulgar Amsterdam accent of flowergirl Elisa Doeluttel and turn her into a lady with impeccable enunciation. 

Pygmalion will be screened together with the short film Amour et Science (M. J. Roche, 1912) The romance of film, love and science. A mad inventor creates a video telephone, but his fiancĂ©e teaches him a lesson by appearing on screen with her ‘lover’.
