My Fair Lady
Pygmalion remains Shaw's most popular play. Bernard Shaw was an Irish playwright, critic, polemicist and political activist. Young people know this work thanks to the movie My Beautiful Lady (1964). The play was adapted only after the author's death. He had refused to allow a musical adaptation of his play, afraid the relationships between his main characters Eliza Doolittle and Henry Higgins would be romanticized and the ending, in which they do not enter a romantic relationship or marriage, would be changed. So it happened, the Hollywood movie ends with a happy ending.
The 2nd year students of the Kherson State University, who continue their language practice at the Window on America center, wanted to find more information about the author, his life and works, as well as about the cockney dialect that was used in the play and in the movie. The literary presentation «Lady and the Flower Girl» gave the answers to every question.
