Very nice job! I enjoyed reading each of the 13 points and found your arguments quite interesting. They made me think about certain elements in the film that I had not thought about before.

I caught at least some of the grammar errors when I first listened to the OBC LP in '56, and eventually identified others. They don't really bother me because Harrison talk-sings them so beautifully. I can understand why they were not corrected for the film, and I'm fine with that decision. I agree that the American-expression lyrics should have been replaced with the British ones for the film.

I actually like the film's ending. I think when Eliza smiles and moves toward Higgins, it's apparent that she loves him and now has a better understanding of his failings. Perhaps their mutual feelings for each other will evolve into romantic ones or (if not) a business relationship might be possible. I like your reasoning on the other points.
