Valentine's Movie Survey (in which Greer and Walter is a valid answer for every question)

Sorry I haven't posted for a while, I hope to be back posting at least once a week very soon. In the meantime, here's a fun little survey I thought I would participate in. Meredith from Forever Classics is the creator of the survey and the runner of a very wonderful blog (you should go and check it out!). Enjoy!

1. What is your favorite romantic comedy?

I'm going to say My Man Godfrey because, whilst I adore films like An Affair to Remember and Breakfast at Tiffany's, I consider them to be dramedies rather than pure comedies.

2. What is your favorite romantic drama?

Random Harvest

3. Worst romance film you've seen?

The Notebook. I'm not going to lie, I cried at the end but I'm blaming that on James Garner. I hope to never to see the film again because I'll probably weep once more and then I'll hate myself for it because it really is an atrocity.

4. How do you feel about the majority of romantic films being labeled "chick flicks"?

The same way I feel when I tell people I love Band of Brothers, Saving Private Ryan, The Pacific etc. and they say "But they're men's tv series/films!". 

5. Favorite on-screen couple?

Greer and Walter, always.

6. Favorite off-screen couple?

The Pidgeons.

Not a valid answer? Nonsense, say I. The Pidgeons were a very well known couple back in the day. They used to go for golfing weekends in the country with the Powells. Needless to say, they  spent most of the time in the bar.

But, you know, in all seriousness, I would have to go with Ma and Pa.

7. Best kiss in a movie?

Greer and Walter in Julia Misbehaves.

8. Favorite romantic scene?

Can I say all of An Affair to Remember? Yes? Good.

9. Who are 2 film characters you wished had gotten together, but never did?

Not a day goes by when my heart doesn't ache for the Baroness and Captain von Trapp. NOT A DAY! 

The first serious couple that came to mind was Anna and the King. Seriously, they were this close and then he died. He was the most inconsiderate of men.

10. Two actors you think would have great chemistry, but have never done a film together?

Deborah Kerr and Christopher Plummer. I've never thought of them doing a film together before today but, oooh la la, yes please.. Also, Eleanor Parker and Gregory Peck in one of those Yes-The-Plot-Is-Rubbish-But-Look!-Beautiful-People films. *cough*you'resosuperficialSophie*cough*

11. Favorite romantic song in a film (doesn't have to be from a musical)?

Some Enchanted Evening from South Pacific

12. Best score from a romance film?

Cliché, I know, but Breakfast at Tiffany's has such a beautiful score and the moment I hear the first few notes, I feel all warm and fuzzy.

13. Most romantic film quote?

Smithy: I don't even know who I am. 
Paula: Well, I know who you are. You're someone awfully nice. 
- Random Harvest

It's more sweet than romantic but d'aww, my heart belongs to Smith and Paula.

14.  A film you'd recommend to watch on Valentine's Day?

Random Harvest or Brief Encounter. They've both got substance but one will leave you crying with happiness and the other will leave you in a black pit of despair. Take your pick!


  1. I agree with so many of your answers. Random Harvest is the most romantic film ever :'-)

  2. The Pidgeons and the Powells. :D We all know they were real. Here's to the Baroness and Capt. Von Trapp. And, in response to your 14th answer, I'll take the black pit of despair. ;) LOL. I'd take Random Harvest any day. I love the absolutely sunshiny happiness that comes from watching it.

  3. If you were interested in hosting the Live Broadcast of the Q & A on your website, as well as, getting some Game Of Thrones Seasons 1-2 DVD awesome In the Land of Blood and Honey swag, please feel free to email me and we can get you all set up!
