PYGMALION (1935)

Erich Engel, Jenny Jugo, Gustaf Gründgens and Anton Edthofer
$9.99

Gustaf Grundgens plays the main roll in this theatre work by George Bernard Shaw, later to become famous as a musical.  Professor Higgins teaches phonetics and observes other people with a professional interest in how they express themselves, as is the case with the flower seller, Eliza.  He wants to carry out an experiment with her, making her completely into a “lady”, who can carry her own in higher society circles and not betray her lowly social origins.

In der Adaption des später als Musical berühmt gewordenen Theaterstücks von George Bernard Shaw brilliert Gustaf Gründgens in der Hauptrolle. Professor Higgins lehrt Phonetik und beobachtet mit fachlichem Interesse andere Menschen und ihre Ausdrucksformen, so auch die Blumenverkäuferin Eliza. Mit ihr will er ein Experiment durchführen und sie so umfassend zur "Dame" erziehen, dass sie in höheren Gesellschaftskreisen bestehen kann und niemand ihr die soziale Herkunft anmerkt.
