Default Whats your favorite love stories or old classic movies???

We took a trip down memory lane at work yesterday, and it turned out to be a very interesting conversation (mostly women, and one man) and WOW! everyone came up with some great classic love story movies, or all-around great classic movies;

MY PICKS

The Thornbirds starring Richard Chamberlain
(I absolutely love this movie, my #1 favorite Love Story)
Amazing Cast!!

2nd runner up; A Place in the Sun with Montgomery Cliff, Liz Taylor and the late Shelly Winters (this movie really puts love to the test)

3rd runner up; The World of Suzie Wong (Great movie, and beautiful scenes of Hong Kong)


Favorite Classic Movies from the 50's/60's;

I remember watching these movies when I was a teen with my Mom!!!and now I watch them whenever they are on TMC
1) Rear Window with James Stewart (Great movie)
2) Imitation of Life with Lana Turner
3) The Bad Seed (the child you love to hate)
4) "Whatever happened to Baby Jane" starring the late Betty Davis (one of the best performances ever by an actress)


I know you have some favorite! Do share!!!

When I was a very young girl, I saw the movie "the railway children". I know if I see it now as an adult that it would not have the same impact, but it did for me as a child. Clasics, of course I will always remember the sound of music..........

The original which when it was made caused a tremendous turmoil because of the racial implications in an America that was still in denial of it's racial divide..I am still amazed it was made considering both it's racial and political climate...My personal all time favorite movie

I just finished re-reading The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter.

Flowers for Algernon and Giant are books on my top 20 list.

Hmmmm...think I might have to start a favorite book post.

I just "loved" those car chases. There may have been a love story, sub-plot, in couple of them.

Take care,

louise71594, they don't make them like that anymore. I've seen some classics listed on this thread. What a nice movie library this would make.

Well, it was made in the mid-60's, so my recollection is a bit fuzzy. As I recall, it's a black comedy about the funeral business - both human and pets. Johnathan Winters was in it, as well as Rod Steiger, and I can't remember the other cast members. The most memorable scene I can remember is near the end of the film when this huge woman is in bed, eating like there's no tomorrow, and the refrigerator falls on her.

It reminds me of a later film, Dr. Strangelove, in that it spoofs just about everyone and everything.

Sorry I can't be more precise, but as I said, it was made about 40 years ago, and the old memory ain't what it used to be.

You are so right seadog2

Without the sex, bad language, nudity etc. these movies are all classics, and the acting was superb. Boy, how times have changed!!!!

But at least we have them to watch over and over.... I just ordered to of my favorites, Baby Jane and Bad Seed. Got them really cheap from Columbia House.

Oh Lord, my wife hates this movie with a passion! But I love it! I taped it off the tv many years ago and watch it every now and then. Liberache (sp) was in it also as a casket salesman. Said you needed the casket lined with satin because everything else would chafe the skin! A very strange movie indeed, Great movies on this thread.

Re The Loved One--

Yes, that's right, Jonathan Winters owns a cemetery a la Forest Lawn, when suddenly somebody discovers oil on it or something--anyway, it turns out to be worth a fortune, and Winters is trying to figure out how to cash in.

Greatest line from him that I remember: "I've got to figure out a way to get these stiffs off my land!"

The best love story/tear-jerker I can remember is "Ghost" with Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze.
