  • CASABLANCA
  • GONE WITH THE WIND
  • AN AFFAIR TO REMEMBER






GONE WITH THE WIND
(1939)


Starring: 
Vivien Leigh, Clark Gable,  Leslie Howard, Olivia de Havilland, Hattie McDaniel & Butterfly McQueen
Directors: 
George Cukor & Sam Wood

233 minutes
Winner of 10 Academy Awards®, including Best Picture



Synopsis: What woman hasn't wanted to be Scarlet O'Hara just once in her life? And what man wouldn't love to be Rhett Butler? Gone with the Wind continues to charm audiences  even 62 years later with its sweeping love story spanning the years of the civil war and the decade following. It is the movie all others are measured by and produced the first Academy Award® for an African American Actress (Hattie McDaniel as Mame) in history. Considering this was 1940's USA where we still lived in a segregated society, this is a well deserved but remarkable achievement.


In terms of tickets sold, Gone with the Wind is still the champ.  In terms of romance, chasing the one that will never be yours and not appreciating what you have until too late, this film is a great reminder of the precious gift love can be if only you open your eyes to see it.

Casablanca
(1942)

Starring: 
Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman, Paul Henreid, Claude Rains
Director: 
Michael Curtiz

145 minutes

Synopsis :

Considered by many one of the greatest movies of all time, Casablanca weaves a love story within the tapestry of war, intrigue and heroism. Featuring a love triangle which brings to bear a past love within the confines of marital infidelity, Casablanca shows the choice we make when morality and love collide. 

Humphrey Bogart plays a saloon keeper heavily distraught over the future and the one time lover of Ingrid Bergman.  When she wanders into his Gin Joint of all those in the world, the sparks begin to fly and the old romantic feelings are once again rekindled.  In the end Bogart does the hardest thing for any man in love.  He lets her go in one of the most famous good-bye scenes ever recorded on film.

An Affair To Remember
(1957)

Cary Grant, Deborah Kerr, Richard Denning, Neva Patterson 







Director



Leo McCarey





114 Minutes





Synopsis 


Each engaged to others, Grant and Kerr meet on a cruise ship and turn society upside down as they fall in love with each other.  Agreeing to meet New Years Eve a top the Empire State Building, tragedy intercedes and the union is postponed.   In true romantic fashion, neither can forget the other but both believe the other does not want them. 

In the end the truth comes out and a lesson in love is revealed showing that true love overcomes all obstacles and accepts each unconditionally.




Breakfast At Tivanny's
(1961)

Starring
Audrey Hepburn
George Peppard, Andy Rooney, Orangey
Director: 
Blake Edwards


114 minutes
Oscar
® for Best Original Song



Synopsis : 



Truman Capote's wonderful tale of singles life in New York casts Holly Go Lightly played by Audrey Hepburn as the ultimate scatter-brained party-girl who makes her living by earning $50 every time she goes to the restroom on a date and by carrying coded messages to a mobster in prison.  She is set on marrying wealthy but ends up falling for kept man and starving author whom she calls Fred, but is actually Paul.

Confused, frightened and terrified to commit, Holly won't even name her cat because this would mean they were responsible for each other.  The last scene is one you'll remember and cry over as in the pouring rain she searches for Cat after abandoning him and opens her eyes to true love in a rain drenched kiss.
This film touches a nerve with anyone whom has ever been afraid to love yet desperately longs for it.  Audrey Hepburn is at her absolute best and turns a somewhat narcissistic character into a woman most men would long to love.

Romeo And Juliet
(1968)


Starring: 


Olivia Hussey, Leonard Whiting, Milo O'Shea, Michael York, & John McEnery


Director: 


Franco Zeffirelli


138 minutes


Golden Globe for Best Director

Synopsis : 




This award winning interpretation of Shakespeare’s most beloved tale of star-crossed lovers is as epic in its visual elements and costumes as it is in the quality of the acting.


Even if you think you won't like Shakespeare, this film will change your mind.  The script is his, no alterations. 
Romeo & Juliet proves that this Renaissance man is truly the age’s master storyteller and still holds the key to enduring and unequivocal sensuality. Viva la romance!
