was
good, too)

Hi
Shelby, we
watch "An
Affair
to
Remember" twice
this
year, and
I
still
love
to
see
it
and
the
way
the
theme
song
really
makes
this
movie
so
great. I
think
Deborah
Kerr
just
passed
on, and
she
was
in
her
90's
Great
actress!

Hi
Fran,



       No
I
looked
it
up, DEBORAH
KERR
died
at
86, but
I
can't
imagine
her
at
that
ageTo
me, she
will
always
look
like
she
did
back
when.   She
was
also
in
TEA & SYMPATHY.     Do
you
remember
that
Movie?   Shelby

There
are
a
lot
of
them
out
there. There
is
Love
Story, 8
Seconds, and
more
I
like
the
one
Brian's
SongAbout
Brian
P
and
Gale
S
out
the
Bears. It's
about
bonding
and
the
love
they
had
for
each
other. Brought
tears
to
me
every
time
I
watch
it.

Back
in
the
60's, some
of
my
college
roommates
watched "Brian's
Song" in
the
domitory
lounge, and
there
was
not
a
dry
eye
among
usI
also
thought "Ghost" was
really
a
tearful
movie, tooSusan
Hayworth's
movies
like "I
Want
to
Live", and
I'll
Cry
tomorrow" were
good
weepers
too!

Or, how
about " A

OH, I

of

sad, and
depressing, too-

Those
are
all
great
choices
as
wellI've
seen
them
allI
love
Susan
Hayward
and
Bette
Davis
and
two
of
my
favorites
would
be "I
Want
To
Live" and
"Pocketful
of
Miracles".  Newer
movies
that
bring
tears
are "Ghost", "Message
In
a
Bottle" and
"The
Notebook".
