My Fair Lady won eight Oscars, made the first edition of the AFI's Top 100 list, and was selected for preservation by the Library of Congress. So it's no surprise there's yet another new release of the film.
Paramount will release the film on 4K UHD for the first time in May. Despite releasing a highly regarded Blu-ray in 2015, the film has been given a full restoration, scanning the original 65mm film into 8K resolution. The film itself – a long one at 170 minutes – will take up the entire 4K disc, with the bevy of extras – all carried over from the previous edition – on a separate Blu-ray.
This is one of those classic films that's never worked for me, but I know I'm in the minority and fans will be over the moon for this new deluxe version.
My Fair Lady will arrive on 4K UHD on May 25.
