Aw why? I think they show that she goes back to him? Because its obvious theyre in love
Atleast thats my interpretation :p

I liked Charade too. These two are my all time fave movies.

I do like tiffanys too, but I always watch half of it earlier on when im free, and then finish off the other half before I sleep..

Yes, but she was really mad at him and when she was telling him (well singing) that she could live without him I really thought that this is how the story will end. Well, I know that they had to go back to each other cause that's how all movies were ending in that time.

I think the ending is the most precious, touching part of My fair lady. Not because they end together [sorry for the spoiler, but it was just said above, haha] and it's romantic — on the contrary, it's just because it is not sweet and romantic. I've grown accustomed to her face has brilliant lyrics that express exactly how their relationship, Eliza and Higgins', go. Eliza could sing Without you forever, but it's more than clear she can't do without him, and neither can him. He is, like the lyrics go, second nature to her now, like breathing out and breathing in. They are, then, part of each other's life, a habit one can always break and yet they've grown accustomed to each other's face, they fell in love without noticing it. It's exactly the opposite of a romantic love, which is torrid, incontrollable and devastating. It's just a statement of love, of something they've been feeling without knowing — and even denying it.
The last line of the movie just confirms it.
"Where the devil are my slippers?"
