It's a real triumph!



The succesful stage musical "My Fair Lady" was made into a film in 1964. Directed by George Cukor and starring Audrey Hepburn as Eliza Doolittle, the film was a huge success, winning eight Academy Awards (including those for Best Picture and Best Director). Katharine Hepburn (who had been a close friend of George Cukor since the 1930s) and Spencer Tracy wrote a brief letter to congratulate George and Audrey on their success; the handwriting is Katharine's:
