Top 25 Classic Romantic Movies ...


When you think of romances, don't those same classic movies keep popping into your head?

I think we've all got a list of great, timeless love stories that we watch over and over.

Here are my favorite 25 classic romantic films!

1. Casablanca

Starring: Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman, and Paul Henreid

How could this one not top my list?

Casablanca is the ultimate classic romantic movie.

If you only watch one movie off my list, please make it this one.

It is the exotic story of the love triangle between Rick (Bogart), Victor (Henreid), and Ilsa (Bergman).

Everything about this movie, from the cast to the setting to the dramatic ending, is timeless.

Where to Get It:

2. Gone with the Wind

Starring: Clark Gable and Vivienne Leigh

This is my all-time favorite movie!

I could watch GWTW over and over and over again.2

I love Scarlett's (Leigh) fiery personality and Rhett's (Butler) southern charm.

This epic saga is set in the pre-Civil War South, and it follows Rhett and Scarlett through the war and Reconstruction.

A beautiful tale of lovers fated never to be truly happy, this one is just too good too miss!

Where to Get It:

3. Giant

Starring: Elizabeth Taylor and Rock Hudson

Okay, we all know that Rock Hudson wasn't exactly the ladies' man that Hollywood advertised him to be back in the day, but he's still a great looking guy in my opinion, and he makes a great leading man in Giant.

Elizabeth Taylor is one of my favorite actresses of all time, and she's great in this film.

This movie (over 200 minutes long!) is too much to summarize in one sentence, but it follows several generations of a ranching family, and it delivers some major romance and drama.2
