O'Toole as Higgins
Here's something I never expected to see--a video recording of Peter O'Toole in Pygmalion--not the production I saw on a magic night my senior year at college. I remember seeing a broadcast of either this film, or a straight play, on HBO when I was in high school, though. It lacks the fire that the conflict between O'Toole and Sir John Mills as Alfred Doolittle. Sir John Standing, who was so good in A Dance to the Music of Time makes a sturdy Pickering, though. It's nice to see it again.
