First-rate -- and unavailable?
27 November 1999 | by (California) – See all my reviews

Wendy Hiller celebrated the 50th anniversary of her movie debut (as Liza Doolittle in "Pygmalion") with this hysterical performance as Lady Bracknell. It's a filmed-for-TV stage production rather than a movie as such. It doesn't seem available anywhere -- a real loss for comedy fans.
