Fair Lady with a bad habit

The Scottish Mail on Sunday - - Femail -

Au­drey smoked Bri­tish cig­a­rettes from the day Hol­land was lib­er­ated by the Bri­tish, her son Luca re­veals. She ex­plained to him: ‘Free­dom has a spe­cial smell to me – the smell of Bri­tish petrol and Bri­tish cig­a­rettes.’

The lighter, above right, was a gift from Gene Allen, art di­rec­tor on My Fair Lady. The en­graved snuff­box, above left, is a me­mento of the same film, from her co-star rex Har­ri­son, who played Henry Hig­gins to her el­iza doolit­tle, above. They are be­ing sold as one lot.
