Thursday Thirteen Mushy Moments

Thirteen Movie Moments THE GAL HERSELF
just loves. (I'm such a cornball.)

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

    Great list. Even though I haven't yet seen all those movies, the scene descriptions still warm my heart!

  2. My favorite scene in When Harry Met Sally is when she is crying and blowing her nose and throwing the tissues around! Not very romantic...but really funny.

  3. last comment was weird

    Ahhhh, what a wonderful list! I love classic films. And you and I sound like kindred spirits in lots of ways -- we both love cats and books, and we're both romantics! I've bookmarked your blog to read regularly. :)

    Have a great weekend, and thanks for visiting my blog!

  5. Officer and Gentleman, that was a good movie. You don't see good romantic endings anymore... we need more romance and less scary movies. Fun list!

  6. I love that scene from "It's a Wonderful Life"! In fact, I love every scene from that movie.

    It's ok that you're a cornball! It's an admirable trait, I think!!!

    Thanks for visiting my site! Really enjoyed your list!
