About this title


One of the most shattering and upsetting stories I have read for a long time. I certainly finished it feeling as if I had watched and earthquake.The final irony is that Pascal's last mad idea was a musical based on PYGMALION. He broke himself-and several others-keeping up the option payments on it.One day Pascal looked at his wife's hand and said with amazement, 'I am going to leave you with millions,' Nothing seemed less likely. He died penniless and deep in debt.But the book ends with the first night of MY FAIR LADY.-Colin Wilson

About the Author:

Hungarian film star Valerie Hidvegy (Pascal), now the widow of George Delacorte, famed New York philanthropist and publisher, cut through the Iron Curtain to marry Gabriel Pascal, producer of Bernard Shaw?s films, for a life of struggle, unhappiness, and all-conquering love. Finally, Pascal?s idea to make Pygmalion into a musical became My Fair Lady, but by then he was dead.
