What Do You Think is the Most Romantic Movie Ever?
I know it's the day after Valentines but what the heck. What movie do you feel is the perfect romance and why? I would have to say "Gone With the Wind". Funny because it was my mother's favorite too. I remember as a teen she took me to see it for the first time. Of course it didn't really do too much for me then. She also passed the book on to me. That was much better and after a few years I saw the movie again and now I understood the characters.
Pity crushing on Leslie Howard and Clark Gable when they've been gone for so long. But Clark Gable stood the test of time. Even compared to sex symbols of the present day...Clark as Rhett Butler, MWWWRRRROWWR. The thing I love about this movie besides the stars is it was the way great movies used to be. No shades of gray or people being crazed weasels. They left things to the audiences imagination.
Like when Rhett hauls Scarlett up that staircase, you just know the house was a rockin', they didn't have to be graphic. Scarlett all happy the next morning said it all. Yes the portrayal of blacks in this movie is an abomination...But just concentrating on Rhett and Scarlett...Oh and IMHO he does ultimately go back to her. They knew each other too well. He probably goes to town and Belle Watling talks him into going home.
My favorite, Casablanca. Also An Affair to Remember and one that not too many people talk about, Miracle in the Rain. My mom loved those old movies and what great memories of sitting there watching the musicals and love stories and westerns and comedies with her. 21st Century: The Notebook.
"The Magic of Ordinary Days" starring Keri Russell and Skeet Ulrich. Made in 2005 and set in the mid-West during WWI, it follows the journey of a young (single) pregnant woman whose appalled father sends her half-way across the country to marry a farmer she's never met. Beautifully acted, intelligently scripted and visually appealing, it transports us back to a tenuous time in our history. The displaced
mother-to-be continues writing to the soldier she fell in love with hoping he'll rescue her. Desperate for companionship during the long days at home while her new stranger husband works the farm, she befriends two Japanese sisters from California who are working in the fields and living in a nearby internment camp. The film is sweet, compassionate, gentle and revealing. It is full of heart, understanding, forgiveness and love. For all these reasons and more, it's my pick for the most romantic movie ever.
maybe not the best but leaves your heart wanting more , you actually feel n connect if it hadn't happened at one time to you ... check out a walk in the spring rain 1970 Anthony Quinn and Ingrid Bergman cant get any better than that for talent
