why fix it if it's not.....

why in this world would 'pygmalion' need to become 'my fair lady?' i fear that the coming remake will also shy away from the original title.

top photo: playwright george bernard shaw. his play 'pygmalion', a loose adaptation of the greek myth, was written in 1913. in this photo he appears to be thinking: 'let's see. shall i call it my fair lady? no no no, bad idea.'
