Our British friends at www.timeout.com in London put together a panel of experts (actors and movie people from both sides of the pond) to select the 100 best romantic movies of all time.
I’m surprised that so many old movies made the list. That makes me feel warm and happy.
My favorite, “Notorious” with Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman sits at number 52. A crowd pleasing favorite “The Way We Were” with Robert Redford and Barbara Streisand is number 59. Am I the only one who hated that movie?
Some choices are what you’d expect, like “When Harry Met Sally” at 25. Others are a head scratchers, such as “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf” at #88. Whoever selected that has a very different view of romance.
You can view the entire interesting and eclectic list here. How many have you seen? According to the folks at Timeout, the average is 32. I counted a rather impressive 54 for me.
