The 50 Most Romantic Movies Ever Made

In light of our movie lists, this one is a work of art. There are many that I am adding to my ‘to watch’ list. It sadly lacks the delights of Bronte or Austen interpretations, for me, but there are many gems, nonetheless. What’s missing here for you?


Ah, Valentine’s Day: flowers, candy, gifts, overpriced dinners, and wildly outsized expectations. And we can blame the movies for most of those expectations; few genres are as unfairly fantasy-based as the romance, and as prone to send jaded viewers like us into fits of gagging. But we’re also not made of wood; there are a good number of romantic movies that get us right in the old ticker. As a matter of fact, there are about 50 of them.

    I couldn’t find the list of 50 most romantic movies, but I hope it included the 1940 version of Pride and Prejudice with Laurence Olivier, Greer Garson, Edna May Oliver and several other highly esteemed actors. Screenplay by Aldous Huxley. No other production has ever come close.
    Thank you for all your postings.

    PS. Many of those actors – and the screen playwright – in that 1940 Pride and Prejudice were dead before I was born. But well worth honoring by watching that spectacular film.


A penny for your thoughts, $5 if they're dirty...
