I had loads of fun doing my Valentines. I didn't have that sense of a Helping Hand leaning over my shoulder putting things together as I usually do. Still, it was fun and I got them all sent out on time.
I thought it would be fun this year to list my top 10 favorite romantic movies. I know a lot of my readers enjoy romance.
Top 10 Favorite Romantic Movies: Ta Ta, Ta Ta Ta Ta!
1. Pride and Prejudice -I like the one with Keira Knightley. I play it over and over.
2. Jane Eyre - Love the A&E version from around l999.
3. The Princess Bride - Great sword play and whimsy
4. Casablanca - a classic
5. My Big Fat Greek Wedding - I practically have this one memorized. I am just now getting to where I don't laugh hysterically when Toula's aunt talks about her twin.
6. The Sound of Music - Maria and the captain are just too much.
7. An Affair to Remember - A great Cary Grant movie. The ending is my favorite ending ever.
8. Seven Brides For Seven Brothers - This may not qualify as one to many of you, but there are seven ladies and seven brothers and lots of love going on and a lot of great dancing. I guarantee the joy will lift your spirits.
9. My Man Godfrey - An old comedy with William Powell and Carol Lombard. It's corny to the max, but I love to watch it when I need something light.
10. The Lady Vanishes - This little beauty snuck into our home on a three movie Alfred Hitchcock collection. I soon adopted it. It's witty, stylish, mysterious. A very young Sir Michael Redgrave (Vanessa's dad) is the star.
BONUS - Shadowlands - This is sad. That's why it's not in my top 10. It's about C.S. Lewis and his wife. Of course they are older. Nevertheless, Anthony Hopkins and Debra Winger are fabulous. Just the romance part touches my heart every time.
I'd love to hear about your favorite romantic movies. I'm always open to a new one. So if you have time, could you tell me a little bit about your movie.
Wishing all of you a great weekend and a Very Happy Valentines Day. (Don't eat too much chocolate.) Love, Nancy
