I love movies. I love love. So it stands to reason that I love a good celluloid romance.
1, Scarlett and Rhett on the bridge against a Technicolor sky, as she sends a soldier of the Confederacy off to war with a beautiful memory. Gone with the Wind
2. George and Mary sharing the same phone receiver, falling in love as Harry drones on about investments and “ground floors.” It’s a Wonderful Life
3. Harry races to meet Sally at the New Year’s Eve party and confesses his love. When Harry Met Sally
4. Similarly, once Sandra Bullock realizes she loves Huge Grant, she takes off up the street to tell him and (sigh) kiss him. Two Weeks Notice
5. Richard Gere carries Debra Winger out of the paper bag factory. An Officer and a Gentleman
6. Rick directing the muzzle of Ilsa’s gun at his own heart, because if she no longer loves him, he no longer wants to live. Casablanca
7. “Keep going, Teacher Lady.” Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
8. Captain Von Trapp kissing Maria in the gazebo. The Sound of Music
9. Hepburn realizing her sister neither loves nor understands Cary Grant. Meaning that Kate realizes what we’ve known all along – that she’s the girl for him. Holiday
10. “Godfrey loves me! Godfrey loves me!” My Man Godfrey
11. Jack and Diane flirt over late-night pancakes. Something’s Gotta Give
12. The detective investigating Laura’s murder dozes off in the chair under her portrait. And wakes up suddenly to see the real girl standing before him. Laura
13. Sinatra singing “Someone to Watch Over Me” to/about Doris Day. Young at Heart
