The Zefirelli version? It's quite a bit better than the Baz Luhrman one, isn't it?

I chose none of the above.....I would have to say my favorite romantic flick is the original "Wuthering Heights" movie of 1939 starring Sir Lawrence Olivier and Merle Oberon. The book written by Emily Bronte is even better but it is one of the few movies where the movie followed the book pretty well!

Wow. That was weird to see a post from me in a previous incarnation. I stand by what I said then: Gone With The Wind. On the Big Screen. As it was meant to be seen. I'd seen it countless times on TV & it was ok, a little ho-hum, but amusing. But on the Big Screen!!! Oh my!!!!!

Of the ones listed that I've seen, I don't consider any of them to be romantic. I don't view failed relationships as romantic. Two people who don't make it doesn't make romance in my book.

For me, romance films are the couples are crazy but perfect for each other. "Romancing the Stone", "My Big Fat Greek Wedding", "American President", the "Shrek" movies.

I get that it's nice and dramatic and weepy to have Scarlett crying at the door while Rhett walks into the mist but nothing about it is romantic to me. She just got dumped people, that's usually time for ice cream and sobbing.

I much prefer the sequel book where he finds her Ireland after divorcing her to remarry her. After she's realized how to be a mother and stopped being so self-absorbed. And he's admitted that it's ok to need someone. People growing from their love - that's romantic.

My .02

ETA: I forgot... I regard "Stagecoach", John Wayne's first big movie, as one of the most romantic movies of all time. Set in an era when being a whore was a BIG BAD TERRIBLE thing the romantic lead was a lady of the night. John Wayne's character doesn't know that and, during the course of the movie while they are traveling on a stagecoach, he falls for her and proposes. Throughout the movie she keeps trying to get him to leave the coach and have her meet him later because she is too ashamed to tell him the truth and thinks he will stop loving her.

At the end of the movie they get to town and he insists on walking her home. They keep walking and she keeps trying to get him to leave. He keeps saying he's going to take her home. Finally she gets to the brothel house and starts crying and says "Say good-bye here kid".

His response - "I asked you to marry me didn't I?"

*melt*

Red Shoe Diaries, on Showtime

quote:

Wikipedia (explains it fairly well)
The tested episodes always open with a quick montage of a newspaper personals section ad under "Red Shoes" seeking women to mail in their personal diaries with stories of love, passion and/or betrayal. The presenter and host Jake Winters (David Duchovny) is then shown walking on desolate train tracks with his dog Stella. He begins reading a letter from his post office box out loud that begins with "Dear Red Shoes..." He first took out the ad after the suicide of his fiancée, and his subsequent confrontation of the man with whom she was having an affair, a construction worker & shoe salesman who sold her a pair of red high heels, inspiring both the ad and the show's title. He placed the ad in the newspaper in an effort to understand why it happened and learn his fiancée's reasons for killing herself through the stories of women in similar situations. The storylines usually have a thin plot revolving around some intrigue and the sexual awakening of a girl or woman who often also narrates. Sensuous love scenes with nudity as well as sultry, moody music are characteristic for most episodes. There is no story arc or characters connecting the different stories other than Jake Winters introducing each episode.

My Gal Friday & any other screwball comedies with Katherine Hepburn & Spencer Tracy in them. On the Big Screen, of course.

I wish that I could find a theater nearby that showed the old classics the way they were meant to be seen. Or if I had the moolah, I'd open one. Because the movies from before TV were never meant to be seen any way other than on the Big Screen & they lost so much impact when they were played on tv.

I have a hard time picking "The Greatest" anything.
I have favorites... not a favorite.

Among mine are Breakfast at Tiffany's and another is the original Sweet November from 1968 with Sandy Dennis and Anthony Newley.

Brokeback Mountain  *When he goes to the home of the parent's of his dead love and finds his coat in the bedroom closet. *sobs*

Far and Away

Love Story

The Graduate

The Abyss  *when Mary Elizabeth Mastriano is dying and Ed Harris is beyond despair and trying frantically to save her, all but given up, and she takes a breath...the emotion is palpable in that scene. Cry every single time.

Thanks for all the great movie suggestions, folks. (Favorites the thread) About half of these I have never gotten around to seeing. I need to get busy!

My nomination: Closet Land.
