Tell Me Something Tuesday is a fun weekly meme hosted by Heidi at Rainy Day Ramblings that gives bloggers a chance to chat about everything from books to social issues and get to know each other better. It’s a big ‘ol group effort meme, so anyone who has an idea for a topic is encouraged to either email Heidi or leave a comment during the week’s stop.
This week’s question is sticking to the Fiery Hot Reads for Icy Cold Nights theme that we had last week and fits the ongoing hop:
What are some of your favorite romantic movies?
I’m so going to get in trouble for this one. I don’t watch a lot of movies. I hate sitting still for two hours to have someone else tell me a story in pictures when I could be reading one and filling in the blanks myself, so most of my favorite movies are from a loooong time ago and not a lot of them are romantic.
I have one. I watch it every time I can find it though, so it’s special! It’s from 1939, a black and white (don’t you dare watch the colorized version) starring Bette Davis and George Brent, called Dark Victory. It’s about a foolish, sort of obnoxious socialite who’s diagnosed with a brain tumor. Despite themselves, she and her doctor fall in love, get married and move out to a nice country house. I cry my eyes out every time at the ending – just a a couple of lines, a little kiss, a laugh with Brent and one more scene before it fades to black and I’m a puddle of mush. If you like old movies, you have to find this one!
