Biography

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

 

Gabriel Pascal (4 June 1894 – 6 July 1954) was a Hungarian film producer and director.

Born 1894 in Arad, Kingdom of Hungary, Austro–Hungarian Empire, Pascal was the first film producer to bring the plays of George Bernard Shaw successfully to the screen. His most famous production was Pygmalion, for which Pascal himself received an Academy Award nomination as its producer. Pygmalion was later adapted by Lerner and Loewe into the musical My Fair Lady. Pascal had tried to convince Shaw to let Pygmalion be turned into a musical, but the outraged Shaw explicitly forbade it, having had a bad experience with the operetta The Chocolate Soldier, based on Shaw's Arms and the Man. Pascal died in 1954, and it was not until 1956 that Pygmalion became My Fair Lady.
