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.

 

So whats your favorite romance?

I like my romances with a little comedy in them: When Harry Met Sally, Sleepless in Seattle, 50 First Dates, Stardust, The Princess Bride, but for straight romance it has to be either Casablanca, Titanic or An Affair to Remember.  I vote for Casablanca.

An Affair to remember was my all time favorite as well , until i saw Bridges of Madiso County., and '' Murphys  Romance.. Ofcourse  they're both about love between older  individuals, which i can relate to.

Definitely Meryl Streep and Robert Redford in 'Out of Africa'.  I have watched this movie countless times and enjoy it every time.
I would also include 'Dr. Zhivago'.  I fell in love with that movie the first time I saw it and went back the next night to see it again.

Definitely two movies...GHOST and DIRTY DANCING. Ghost was unbelievably sexy in scenes where even though he was dead and sat behind his girlfriend and caressed her. Sue

I really enjoyed Dr. Zhivago and that is a classic that will never get old.  Ghost was a really enjoyable modern film that was acted, directed, and produced so well.

We must be James Garner fans.

 

My wife thought of "Victor, Victoria."

 

I've always liked "The Americanization of Emily," though I think of it more as an idealistic anti-war film.

Yes, The Notebook is wonderful, Casablanca is one of the best ever, but there is a wonderful movie called "The End of the Affair" with Ralph Fiennes and Julianne Moore.  Sooooo good.  And, also, in the musical category, don't forget West Side Story.

I scanned some of the answers and came to the conclusion that romance is dead! My idea of the most romantic movie is Casablanca - the real old one - in black and white...remember that?  The second is The Notebook, the original one.
