My favorite film is "My Favorite Year" with Peter O'Toole. It's brilliantly written and acted. I watch it several times a year.

Utterly charming, that one.  It wasn't his last film, but I like to think of it as O'Toole's Swann song. Woman Wink

 

Speaking of O'Toole, my favorite film has been, since its release in 1968, The Lion in Winter.

Re: I think my favorite film is

I tried, I really tried, @qualitygal, to narrow it down to one, but the closest I got to that was three!  And even that was hard.

 

You specified, "favorite film that's a love story" so I was thinking specifically of romances.  These three love stories i chose do overlap with my favorite (general) movies.

 

"The Third Man"--  Director Carol Reed's masterpiece set in post-War Vienna.  Most people concentrate on the suspense and on Orson Welles' electrifying performance.  I love the way that Joseph Cotten falls in love with the elusive actress he teams up with, Alida Valli.  It's unplanned and a lot of it is unspoken, but it's wistful and heartbreaking, and that incredible zither score intensifies everything.

 

"Notorious"--  Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman are star-crossed and separated for much of this thriller, but it doesn' t make their chemistry any less potent.  That frantic scene where she has been lethally doped by Claude Rains and his mother, and Cary is trying to wake her up and get her out of that toxic mansion, is a total love scene.  He's whispering to her and urging her on and he almost can't see straight, he loves her so much, and he's so tender.

 

"His Girl Friday"--  Hmm, two thirds of my favorite love stories have Cary Grant!   Here he's Rosalind Russell's ex-husband and ex-editor, and he's wooing her back as both a wife and reporter.  Their banter back and forth is knowing and hilarious-- they've long had "each other's number".   Cary is trying to win her back with everything he's got-- his wit, his cunning, his knowledge of what makes her tick.  Again, like in "The Third Man", much of it is oblique and read-between-the-lines, but no less romantic for all of that.

Colin Firth -thought he was the dog on "The Middle"?

And there was no one left to speak out for me....
