Born Yesterday (1950)
Whether we’re talking Easter Parade, My Fair Lady, Pretty Woman or others, George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion theme has been interpreted many times but never so brilliantly as in this dynamite romantic comedy. Starring ‘Golden Boy’, William Holden and the dazzling Judy Holliday, this movie of double-dealing, chicanery and shady political machinations is as searingly relevant today as it was then. First released on 25th December 1950, Born Yesterday proved to be the best Christmas present any lover of great movies could wish for. A comedic tour-de-force by Judy Holliday (who was to tragically die from cancer just 2 weeks short of her 44th birthday) landed her the best actress Oscar.
