Hollywood’s Great Romantic Scenes: The Sequel -- 1960 to Present

<< Back to Speaking Topics List

Waypic250Because filmmakers around the world have embraced love stories at a near-alarming rate over the decades, the idea of falling in and out of love earns its own sequel.

In this presentation enhanced with PowerPoint images and film clips that runs just over an hour, we’ll focus on the most moving romantic scenes between 1960 and today.
 
Some movies show up on both lists, of course, like “The Way We Were” and “Moonstruck.”
 
In this popular presentation, however, we'll move a little closer to today with "Something's Gotta Give," "Titanic" and perhaps the most romantic of them all ...
 
Well, you'll just have to join us to find out which one that is. Get out your hankies and book your "Great Romantic" movies presentation today.

Great. Now I have Ms. Streisand's song playing in my mind and I can't get it out. Memories...

Some of these movies were really good. others were just made to make us cry. That's my opinion on it. There's no way that a director can just come up with a film that evokes so much emotion without planning it that way at the beginning.

We like it too I think. The recommendations we get from friends who have seen a movie before us are quite effective when they say that a film made them cry.

Movie Memories Update

Marion or The Duke: It's all John Wayne

Stagecoach300r
John Wayne about to hitch a ride to fame as The Ringo Kid in "Stagecoach" (1939).

So what's your favorite Marion Robert Morrison movie?

We're talking the late, great "everyman" movie star John Wayne, of course.

The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance starring The Duke, Jimmy Stewart, Vera Miles and Lee Marvin as the title character is my favorite, Pilgrim.   That heartfelt-yet-hard hitting Western of love, unrequited and otherwise, giant pan-fried steaks and Marvin as quite possibly one of the Top 5 big screen baddies of all time, only edges out True Grit by an eyepatch or two.
