Good choices from everyone, some good clips, thanks, I will learn how to embed my own, honest.
There's sequences in The Kid Brother and Girl Shy with Harold Lloyd and Jobyna Ralston that express romance perfectly. There's a scene in My Best Best Girl between Mary Pickford and Buddy Rogers were they are sat in crate that's romantic.
I love The Quiet Man, John Wayne is so not my type of guy but the film is s perfect he easily could be. Maureen O'Hara is my kind of woman. I love that scene in A Matter of Life and Death.Waterloo Bridge with Vivien Leigh and Robert Taylor, sigh.
There's two kinds of romantic films that I really like, the one of soulmates, two people madly in love with everything about one another whether they end up together or not and films were the couple are poles apart but discover one another, the first one is usually the more 'romantic' the second more hidden passion.
