Classic Hollywood Romances. Celebrating a Rainbow of Life with a variety of love tones.


So, have any of us come to think of the most memorable classic romances in Hollywood over the decades? As a passionate admirer of Romanticism and an alluring Hollywood musician, I can definitely feel my pulses on the silver star screen of a bygone era adorned with tremendous love and first love. Be it the touching saga of star-crossed lovers during the war under the beloved arc of the American Rick’s Café’s “Casablanca” arc or the wonderful melodrama “Gone With The Wind” based on Margaret Mitchell’s great Civil War sales (which defined the word “Hollywood blockbuster”) for each of them. I have an insatiable hunger.

How can I forget the magic emotions of a never-ending love affair in a book called “Love Affair” in which a French and American woman (Charles Boyer and Irene Dunne, respectively) fall in love in her arms? Or remember Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr’s “An Affair To Remember,” where men and women cross an ocean in a boat and fall in love, only to be reached in a few ways. In the Empire State Building, New York (unfortunately it won’t happen)? Unforgettable to me is the most precious transient love affair between a passionate love saga of the past, “Roman Holiday,” a disguised princess and a beautiful American journalist (Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck, respectively).

When you want to think of candlelight romances, when you reflect fairy-tale saga of love or cross-star, you would mark the romantic chemistry between the lover and her lover behind these truly wonderful, terrifying and touching tales. love. It is interesting to note that the success of these successes in Hollywood Romanticism is due to the basic elements of Hollywood (especially music), the classical elements of Romanticism, and a degree of sentimentality, yet its nature is quite sophisticated.

The 50s and 60s were sweet days of classic Hollywood romance: ethos, pathos, happy endings, heartfelt farewells and romantic love scenes, along with performances featuring some of Hollywood’s most heartfelt events Gregory Peck, Audrey Hepburn, Grant Bergman, C Gable, Vivien Leigh and Marilyn Monroe were the basis of all young hearts. I would prefer not to try this article as the main story of cinematic history: the best films of all time belong to the genre of classical romance, because it is the work of an encyclopedia and not of man. These days, you’re sure to find them online. So I would limit my writing to discussing only some of the landmarks of the cinematic past, time, and masterpiece that are behind the production of these productions. Once again, it comes from the invaluable love I feel for movies.

Today, Warner Bros., Twentieth Century Fox, MGM and Columbia (Sony) are some of the pioneers in Hollywood film production and distribution, with Paramount Pictures, the longest-running film studio in the United States, respectively. Production and distribution of films in the United States. There were wonderful times when the Hollywood studio system produced classic films that offered something precise and hard to the storytelling that left something to the imagination of the audience. While this was true from the early thirties and thirties to the “seventies,” in those days audiences were fed certain standards of discretion that were fed and used cinematic devices so that they could not explicitly say so. Without meaningful passionate stimuli, it’s easy to use compelling stories and characters, wonderful dialogue, high production values ​​(cinematography, editing, film composition, punctuation, sets, and costumes). The stars of those days gave some of the most famous rounds of all time, including “Gone With the Wind,” “West Side Story,” “Casablanca,” “Roman Holiday,” “Remember My Fair Lady” and “An Affair.”

In the 40s, 50s and 60s, combined, the biggest silver screen legends like Marlon Brando, Humphrey Bogart, Spencer Tracy, the irresistibly beautiful Cary Grant and the super charismatic Gregory Peck, Katharine Hepburn and Bette Davis were also created. Ingrid Bergman, Sofia Lauren, Audrey Hepburn and Greta Garbo and Marilyn Monroe are furious. Interestingly, did you know that the AFI has recently ranked the greatest love stories of the first century of American cinema, which “Casablanca” achieved with the number one position? “Gone With The Wind” and “West Side Story” are next to some of America’s greatest classic reels.

Because of the mythical cinema and the mythical status they deserve for their great romance, few would dare to discuss the position of these three films because they are the greatest novels ever on the silver screen. It is noteworthy that among the protagonists full of romantic protagonists in each of these films are powerful moments of the screen, which certainly become meaningful and personalized fantasies among the fans of these guilty romances. Anyone who has seen “Roman Holiday” will never forget the phenomenal scene between Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck in Peck’s hand with “Mouth of Truth” (La Bocca della Verità), according to the stone face of Rome. to legend, if you lie he will bite your hand. In the film, he is missing when he pulls out his hand and causes Hepburn, Ann’s disguised princess, to scream hysterically. The chemistry between the two on stage is so contagious that the audience never identifies the film as a love story with the distinction of the classic elements of romance.

On the other hand, there were times when Hollywood created memorable and fascinating music, like the legendary “Sound of Music” (1965) “Singing in the Rain” (1952). Considering the great musical films of all time, they are films that immerse themselves in the hearts of fans of eternal romance. Who can forget Julie Andrews ’sweet and hostile song in Julie Andrews’s“ The Sound of Music, ”where she teaches seven children“ Do re mi ”notes or sings of her individuality as she sings“ I have individual confidence ”. does he play with the kids in the song “These are some of my favorite things”?

For the record, the actor’s album was nominated for the Grammy Award of the Year album. The film, meanwhile, won an Oscar and is one of the most popular music ever created. “Singing in the Rain,” on the other hand, starring Gene Kelly, Donald O’Connor and Debbie Reynolds, is wit-filled as a satirical comedy, and is one of the most elegant elements of the music scene of its time. There’s a wonderful dance scene in Gene Kelly in the film: “singing in the rain,” while twisting an umbrella, splashing between puddles and soaking the skin. “My Fair Lady,” is another classic romantic comedy woven into the mold of a musical with electric performances by Audrey Hepburn, Church Doolittle, the young Cockney girl, and Rex Harrison with Henry Higgins. an arrogant and irritating teacher of phonetics. Together they turned on the screen with an unforgettable adaptation of the musical music My Fair Lady based on George Fair Shag’s play Pygmalion.

In later years, to be more precise, from the nineteen-seventies and nineties onwards, there was a marked transition from coil romanticism to sophisticated black-and-white and black-and-white elegant styles, from art and suggestive to sweeter, meaty and. the bloody world of lovers, rocking with long kisses and scenes in love, with immeasurable energy and emotion. What could be a better example of the new cosmos than the one shown by lovers in “Love Story” (1970), one of the most romantic films ever made? Director Arthur Hiller’s romantic tearjerker is about a passionate couple with a tragic ending. It is a heart of love story of life. Considering that Paramount was the most successful film of the time, the film received seven Oscar nominations for the Picture Best Award. Another, from the 90s, “Forrest Gump” (1994), revives the subtle emotions of love, turning the story into the most touching moments of love that Forrest (Tom Hanks) and he has ever experienced throughout his life. In the film, however, we take a broad look at the tumult of American history seen through the eyes of Forrest’s charming symphony, gifted with some classic scenarios with very unique scenery and depth. Once again, in the 90s, we see Richard Gere and Julia Roberts ’tremendous passion and chemistry on screen in“ Pretty Woman ”(1990), a love story about a wealthy business.

I found the chemistry between the lovers so natural and compelling that it transcends the whirlwinds of a romantic comedy and is remembered as a fairly classic film in the genre of romance. Towards the end of the 90s, the world of Hollywood romance was blamed for the blockbuster of all time in the fictional love story of “Titanic” (1997), Rose (Kate Winslett) and Jack (Leonardo De Caprio). Social classes who are in love with several different classes on a 1912 girl trip on the Titanic. Although the film is based on the historical sinking of the giant Titanic, the crossroads and beauty of the film lies in the evil tale of their love, the soulful music of the film, and the memorable soundtrack of the film. On another note, though with the same intensity of hobbies and passions, he unfolds the love story between Noah (Ryan Gosling) and his love Allie (Rachel McAdams) in his book “Notebook” (2004). Adapted from Nicolas Sparks ’1996 romantic novel, it has been one of the most moving romances of its time.

Last but not least; Let me share with you the feelings of witnessing another classic film outside of Hollywood, even though they were so appealing on screen, in a harsh tone, that immediately reminded me of the evocative features and subtleties of the famous Hollywood census. The film is nothing more than an Italian “La Vita E Belle” (“Life is Beautiful”) directed by Roberto Benigni. In 1998 he won 3 Oscars. The film was based on the story of the violence he endured. For the concentration camps of World War I, the film’s nuances transcend the horrors of the concentration camp with some of the most beautiful romantic sequences in world cinema.

Do you remember the scene where Guido follows his bride Dora to the greenhouse and the scenes that come from there? Well, instead of showing what they do there, the scene slowly disintegrates into a shot from the same greenhouse, this time only a little boy is playing in it. The implications are obvious, the device serves to advance the plot a few years after encountering the topic “five years later …” and leaving the viewer’s imagination to the imagination of the viewer. With an amazing script, the film is an unforgettable fable that demonstrates the undeniable spirit of love, family and imagination. Undoubtedly, this, along with the joys of love and life, has been the main foundation behind all the successful romantic classics in Hollywood history. So be it in “Casablanca” or “Notebook”, both “cupid” and “life” rule! In fact, all the romance scenes are a celebration of life in its many shades. Touched by the arrows of Cupid, she becomes more and more beautiful and transcendental.
