Valentine's Day will soon be here soon. In addition to the roses, candy and dinner, you need some warm fuzzy movies to watch as you snuggle up along with your honey. Good love stories provide comedy, romance and oftentimes - a good cry at the expense of someone else's relationship.These classic movies provide superb story content without lots of the distractions of dazzling technology that we get now in movies.
Have a great date night relaxing, as you enjoy the quality time you may spend along with your family member watching these beloved Top Ten Tales of Amour:
10. On Golden Pond - To witness love transcend decades is a glorious sight. Whether we see it within our personal families or in film as here, it holds promise for our personal relationships. Not only relationships with our spouses, but in addition with our children. Two powerhouses of cinema, Katharine Hepburn and Henry Fonda, gave us grace, humor and reason to think in lifelong love. Watching the love and admiration between Fonda and his daughter Jane provides further credence to the great and wonderful love story.
9. Love Is A Many Splendored Thing - Determination to be with the one you adore: the essential love story theme abounds here, spun in a mesmerizing way between two great actors. Jennifer Jones adorns the screen in anything she plays, but watching her with William Holden is spellbinding. Crossing racial barriers and adultery, this story finds you wanting this couple to overcome everything to be together. I watched it recently and actually wept hard, in the same way I'd before when I'd first seen it. Highly recommended. It is a fine cuddle-up and tissue movie.
8. Pillow Talk - A terrific love story does not need to make you cry. This flick with Rock Hudson and Doris Day could be the classic screwball comedy filled with mistaken identity, love and absolute hilarity. Swell soundtrack, especially the small ditty that reigns throughout the film in several versions! Also featuring Tony Randall and Thelma Ritter.
7. The Shop Across the Corner - James Stewart and Margaret Sullavan. This was the inspiration for "You've Got Mail" with Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks. That was good, but regarding that, as oftentimes, nothing's better compared to original. No internet here, just good ol'fashioned letter-writing and pen-pal life in a quaint little town in Budapest at Christmas. You'll cry in your hot cocoa.
6. The Philadelphia Story - Stellar comedy that put Katharine Hepburn back at the very top after an early on stall in her career. Impossible to observe it wouldn't have. This mini-soap opera tells the intertwining story of among Philly's most affluent families and the tabloid-filled lives they lead. Splendid dialogue and an abundance of delightful chemistry throughout the cast provide "a most beholden" piece of entertainment. With Cary Grant, Jimmy Stewart (his Oscar win) and Ruth Hussey.
5. Love In The Afternoon - May-December romance takes the stage here along side fast-living, mischief and mistaken identities. Even an instance of deception can't keep Gary Cooper from falling in love with the young and beautiful Audrey Hepburn. Captivating music also really helps to spin this engaging tale. The train station scene of the film presents a classic moment that numerous other romantic movies have attemptedto duplicate. There's been no other to achieve the emotion that this movie evokes.
4. It Happened One Night - What do you obtain having an heiress running away from an engagement and a hungry reporter trying to recapture the story of the season? One of the finest romantic comedies to ever hit the screen. Full of risque, albeit now classic, moments for the 30s, this film warms the center as you laugh. Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert were a serious pair.
3. Casablanca - Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman. This is actually the story that has everything for everyone. War, intrigue, suspense, gambling, song, romance and, of course, Paris.
2. The Bridges of Madison County - Clint Eastwood and Meryl Streep. I didn't think the movie will make me cry as much as the book, but boy does it. It is a love she has to help keep in her heart for the others of her life, but as she delivers the legacy of the like to her children after her death, it creates understanding its'power much simpler - somehow.
1. Wuthering Heights - Sir Lawrence Olivier and Merle Oberon. The story of Heathcliff, Cathy and the wind of the Moors. Classic story of the burdened heart and, literally, undying love. The supreme tear-jerker. I still recall many years ago in college when some of my classmates and I went to an old movie house around featuring this film. After the lights were fired up by the end of the movie, most people in the audience continued to sniffle. (We laughed in embarrassment, too.) It's lovely and great for a snuggle on Valentine's Day. It will give you the gratitude of knowing love in your lifetime - always.
The original list of my top choices I'd compiled was lengthy, but I do want to also give mention to just a couple more for you really to consider:
Desk Set - The lovely chemistry of Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy throughout the movie, especially in the library loft, gives me chills everytime I see it hermes21. They couldn't have hidden it even when they'd tried.
Brief Encounter - Trevor Howard and Celia Johnson. Considered the love story of most love stories. There's obviously something which pulls at the heartstrings watching stories of unrequited love or, in this case, watching love bloom between the already spoken-for. Penned by Noel Coward and moving over the glorious soundtrack of Rachmaninoff, there's no way to keep tear-free by the end of the movie.
Legends of the Fall - Brad Pitt, the west, the war and unrequited love. Grab at the least two boxes of tissues.
When Harry Met Sally - among my all-time favorites... Women and Men can be friends. However, both of these were just destined for love,period.
Gone With The Wind - my top movie... but at four hours, I believed it somewhat long to mention in the utmost effective 10. Don't miss it though... romance, war, passion, Scarlett and Rhett...
Titanic - Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet. It's quite long also, but it's the quintessential romantic tragedy. We all know the story, but no other film version grasped the romance and desperation as this. Coupled with Celine Dion's crescendo in the theme song and the unending story that continues (pardon me) through the necklace, you'll still cry about this the following day once the song pops on the radio http://184.108.40.206/. It always has airplay at the moment of year!
