I hope everyone has a wonderful Valentines Day.  Whichever way you spend it I hope it includes watching one of the many classic, romantic films out there while with the one you love.  

I guess if I can't see my favorite love story, The English Patient I tend to go for romantic comedies where after many obstacles a couple finds love at the end.  Some of my favorites are Bringing Up Baby, My Man Godfrey, The Philadelphia Story, the original Love Affair and Moonstruck.

Please share your favorite Valentines Day film or romantic movie in comments and take my Valentines Day poll located on the sidebar.

May your day be filled with love, kindness and joy.


  1. Great Valentine's Day post. I especially love the Irene Dunne pic.

  2. Thank you so much Monty! I hope to catch a good old movie later this evening.
    Have a great day,

  5. I'm a day late, but I'm sure the flowers have not wilted yet, so Happy Valentine's Day to you, Page! I watched a romantic favorite of mine last night, "Brief Encounter" with Trevor Howard. Wonderful story, acting, and oh that music!

  6. yes you have the most wonderful blog!!I admire it sooooooooo much!!and all your friends!!

  7. Becky,
    There you go bragging about being only one day late when you know good and well I'm always three days behind!

    But seriously, I haven't heard of "Brief Encounter" although I admire Trevor Howard very much.
    I'm glad you liked the article too. That means a lot to me.

  8. You have to check out Brief Encounter. It's a wonderful film ... directed by David Lean in the 1940s. Marvelous. And I also love The English Patient -- yet another reason to be your valentine!
