When Harry met Sally - How did it originally end?

How the film draws to a close is not what was originally scripted so How did When Harry met Sally originally end? Released in 1989, the final moments of When Harry met Sally have gone down in rom-com history as one of the most heart warming and uplifting of rom-com movie moments. After years of their will-they/won’t-they relationship, Billy crashes a New Year’s Eve party that Sally is at and pours out his love lorn longing for her and how he loves everything from how her nose crinkles when she looks at him a certain way to how it takes her an hour and a half to order a sandwich.

“I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.” he finally tells her.

Billy Crystal himself  said in 2019, ‘It’s an amazing movie, I have to say, because there’s no plot,…..In typical romantic comedies, they go through so much: their adversity, he had to move, he got drafted, he’s in the Army, he came back, they found each other again — no. The obstacle in this movie is themselves.”

But director Rob Reiner revealed what the original ending was going to be. “It was going to be the two of them seeing each other after years, talking and then walking away from each other,” Reiner told Wallace. “I had been married for 10 years. I’d been single for 10 years, and I couldn’t figure out how I was ever going to be with anybody, and that gave birth to When Harry met Sally’

The film went on to earn $93m worldwide and launched to modern day rom-com film
