About This Song
Today’s song, “I’ve Grown Accustomed To Her Face,” is from the very successful 1956 Broadway musical My Fair Lady (2,717 performances), which was made into a film in 1964. Both versions starred Rex Harrison as Professor Henry Higgins, who sings the song at the very end of the show, thinking that Eliza has left for good. We get the happy ending as she walks back into the room as the song ends.
