About this item

The hugely influential, Nobel Prize(R)-winning critic and playwright George Bernard Shaw was notoriously reluctant to allow his writing to be adapted for the cinema. Yet thanks to the persistence of Hungarian producer Gabriel Pascal, Shaw finally agreed to collaborate on a series of screen versions of his witty, socially minded plays, starting with the Oscar(R)-winning Pygmalion. The three other films that resulted from this famed alliance, "Major Barbara", "Caesar And Cleopatra" and "Androcles And The Lion", long overshadowed by "Pygmalion". These clever, handsomely mounted entertainments star such luminaries of the big screen as Vivien Leigh, Claude Rains, Wendy Hiller, and Rex Harrison. "Major Barbara": Filmed in London in 1941, during the Blitz, "Major Barbara" emerged from a troubled production to become a major success for Shaw and producer-director Gabriel Pascal. "Pygmalion's" Wendy Hiller returns as one of Shaw's most memorable, controversial characters, Barbara Underschaft, a Salvation Army officer who speaks out against the hypocrisy she believes exists in her organization. Rex Harrison, Robert Newton, and Deborah Kerr costar in this merrily satirical morality play. "Caesar And Cleopatra": Vivien Leigh and Claude Rains pop off the screen in vivid Technicolor in Pascal's version of Shaw's 1901 play about love and politics in ancient Rome and Egypt. At the time the most expensive British film ever produced (complete with real imported Egyptian sand), Caesar and Cleopatra is a lavish epic, featuring standout performances by its two stars. "Androcles And The Lion": Shaw's breezy, delightful dramatization of the classic fable - about a Christian slave who pulls a thorn from a lion's paw and is spared from death in the Colosseum as a result of his kind act - was written as a meditation on modern Christian values. And Pascal's final Shaw production plays it broadly, casting comic character actor Alan Young as the titular naif; he's ably supported by Jean Simmons, Victor Mature, Robert Newton, and Elsa Lanchester.

"Major Barbara" and "Androcles And The Lion" are presented in Black & White.
