Have you ever looked for love in the petals of a rose…. or a tulip? If the answer is yes, then this write-up is for you.
Just as in real life and in literature, opera, poetry and in lyrical music, love’s tenderness, beauty, joy and fall out has been eulogised in fantastic depictions on the silver screen. To many movie-goers, most of those vintage movie magic by renowned film personalities are like love letters, though short of handwritten in ink, but visual illustrations of romance set amidst glamour and mystery – joy and melancholy. Made to touch heart strings and to stay with the viewer long after it ends, few are nevertheless unabashedly sentimental and manipulative or even cheapo exploitation flicks.
Here below are representative posters of some renowned movies heralded in the romantic genre made in a span of 50 years during 1930s to 1970s:
Until next time, Jo
- I have limited the selection of movies to those only forming part of my cinematic collection of 6,000 movies plus. The omission of many fine representations including details of the movies are simply due to lack of space.
- Most of the movies in the pictorial section above are available with amazon.com, amazon.co.uk and other leading dealers.
- Posters/DVD sleeves credits: amazon.com, en.wikipedia, imdb and from my private collection.
- This illustrated article is an affectionate nosegay to movies of the past. Please refer to “About” of my webpage for more details.

Thank you. Hope you had a lovely day.
A marvelous collection. I loved “The Ghost and Mrs. Muir.” And “Rebecca” was brilliant. Thank you for the great memories. Happy Valentine’s Day!!!
Thank you. Since I started compiling the list, we were watching quite a few of these movies. Great fun.
What a wonderful collection you have, Jo; lots of wonderful cinema moments are flooding back to my mind. 🙂
I am a little late, Jo; however, I do hope your Valentines Day was sweet and loving and you are well and happy.
Carolyn, Thank you for coming here – and for your comments and good wishes. I hope your book is coming along fine.
Vă mulțumesc, o selecți ce denotă cunoașterea subiectului… dacă am putea printr-un efort a selecta și timpul, ar fi minunat. Inspirație și spor
Thank you very much.
Saw many old faves. I used to love, love, love Errol Flynn, Westside Story, and It’s a Wonderful Life. Maybe I should check out the story of Adele H. 🙂
Nice film based on true story. Directed by François Truffaut and starring Isabelle Adjani. Enjoy.
I’ve seen a bunch of these, but not all. I added a few to my list. Thanks!
You are welcome. Have a lovely time.
