Classic Romantic Movies

Wanting to have a "Girls Night Out" movie night or watch a movie for Valentines Day? Here are some movies that focus on romance and not sex.  I have rated them for how many Kleenexes you will need to watch them, from one to five!

This movie stars Jimmy Stewart and is the original to "You've Got Mail" except in this movie they are pen pals. Delightful movie! Kleenex rating One!

Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr star in this love story. This has a Kleenex rating of Three!

For me this is Audrey Hepburn's best movie! Such a sweet story! Kleenex rating Three!

This movie with Cary Grant and Irene Dunne shows love at first sight! Kleenex rating Five!

Cary Grant and Betsy Drake star is this wonderful movie about sharing your home and heart with under- privileged children. Kleenex rating four!
This is one of my favorite movies of Thelma Ritter's, very cute movie, witty and sweet! No Kleenex needed!
No list would be complete without a movie with Doris Day and Rock Hudson, it also, stars Thelma Ritter! No Kleenex needed! I love the Doris's clothes and apartment!

These are just a few of my favorites, so pop some popcorn and enjoy!
