I love this movie. Cary Grant. Deborah Kerr. SIGH
They were running it on AMC last night. And, of course, I had to watch it. It is easily in my top 5 movie list of all time.
THIS, to me, is romance at its finest. Aren't there some days when you might think, "Wow. They sure knew how to make them in the old days"?
Don't get me wrong. I like several contemporary romance movies. But none touch me like some of the old ones. There's a different feel to them. A depth that many modern-day movie romances lack.
Many modern-day romances are so busy trying to be snarky they forget the heart. I'll take both. And people running around half-naked and bedhopping? What in the blazes does that have to do with romance? If not done correctly, not much.
I love "The Mirror Has Two Faces" with Barbara Streisand and Jeff Bridges. LOVE IT. It also ranks in the top 5. If you have not seen it, rent it. It's well worth it.
What am I trying to say? That all the good stuff is old and nothing nowadays is worth a damn? No. I'm not. But there are times when I believe we need to step back and look at The Classics. We can learn from them. It doesn't have to be about mememe. Sometimes it's the giving that makes the getting worthwhile.
