Pygmalion was published in 1916. It was performed at His Majesty’s Theatre in London and there it was well received except for the repetition of the word bloody (this was the first cursing in a play performed there ever). In 1938 it was made into a movie in which it followed the play exactly. In 1964 it was adapted by Warner Brothers into the more widely known movie My Fair Lady starring Audrey Hepburn. This was actually directed by Jack Warner himself. This however followed the play extremely closely with the exceptions of a few extra lines here and there and some added scenes. These differences are seen by the title being changed to My Fair Lady as opposed to Pygmalion.
