…Romantic Movies and Molten Chocolate Cake.
Here are a few of my suggestions for romantic movies to watch tonight, and a link to a great recipe.
An Affair to Remember — Don’t we all want someone like Cary Grant to fall in love with us?
Sabrina (the Harrison Ford/Julia Ormond remake). — When he tells her father he doesn’t deserve her, but “I need her. And I don’t need anything,” my heart melts. And the music…just lovely. Make sure you watch the Sting video of “In the Moonlight” after the credits.
Shall We Dance — This movie does it for me on so many levels, but especially the relationship between Richard Gere’s character and his wife. Probably something to do with being married to a man who doesn’t dance–not even in the kitchen.
Robin and Marian — Bittersweet tale of the legendary lovers in their golden years.
The African Queen — Crusty riverboat captain and prim, old-maid missionary. Humphrey Bogart and Katharine Hepburn. Mosquitos and leeches. Sigh.
Breakfast at Tiffany’s — The first time I walked into the Main Reading Room of the Public Library on Fifth Avenue in NYC, I got all verklempt. I even looked up “Varjak, Paul” in the card file, hoping they had a dummy card in there just for people like me. Moon River.
Come to think of it, this would make a pretty fine evening even without the significant other.
