My vote goes to "The Enchanted Cottage" starring Robert Young as a disfigured war veteran who lives in seclusion in a cottage. There he meets the plain housekeeper, Dorothy McGuire. As the two get to know each other and fall in love, they are physically transformed by that love. When his mother, Spring Byington, visits, she doesn't "see" the two beautiful people. The question for me is "What is real?"

The movie speaks to the transformative power of love and that beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder. The film was made in 1945. I saw it as a young child and I've never forgot it!

I thought 'Casbanca' or possibly 'The African Queen' but then not Quite.

 

I have to vote for "The Sterile Cookoo"

"Casablanca" would be to me.  Maybe "Sleepless in Seattle" also.

I don't watch many romantic films, but Dr. Zhivago and A Beautiful Mind have always moved me.

I love "Sleepless in Seattle" and it gets to me no matter how many times I see it.  Another Tom Hanks/Meg Ryan film that I like is "You've Got Mail".  I love the end of the movie when they meet in the park along with the dog.  I'd never through of "Sound of Music" as a romantic movie, but that is quite a love story when I think about it.

I do agree with The Sound of Music though.


I really liked Notting Hill especially the last scene in the book shop and then at the press conference at the end.

 

Love Actually is another one.
