If you're looking for movie nights to stir up a little romance, these 10 classic romance movies are guaranteed to woo any woman's heart. It's pure science: no woman can resist Audrey Hepburn or Clark Gable. Pop in any of these movies and she'll melt in your arms.
"Gone with the Wind." A feisty and impetuous heroine. A tall, dark, and handsome beau. War. Poverty. Heroism. What's not to love about this 1939 classic?
"Casablanca." It may be cliche, true, but this may be the perfect classic romance movie for both genders. It's got enough drama and intrigue to please men with enough romance to satisfy the ladies.
"Breakfast at Tiffany's." There's a reason why every woman loves this movie. Audrey Hepburn charms as the New York City callgirl Holly GoLightly, a woman who insists she can't be put in a cage by any man. Then George Peppard comes along and proves that she's the one putting herself in a cage.
"The Philadelphia Story." The last movie Cary Grant and Katharine Hepburn made together is one of their best. Hepburn dazzles as a fiery socialite while James Stewart, John Howard, and Grant all vie for her attention.
"Roman Holiday." If there's one thing Audrey Hepburn does better than anything else, it's romance. In her second film on the list, Hepburn charms as a young princess who escapes for one day in Rome with Gregory Peck.
"West Side Story." More of a tragic romance than a traditional feel-good romantic comedy, this classic musical was based on Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. The movie musical provides a modern twist on the original tale of star-crossed lovers.
"Swing Time." Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers are one of the most famous on-screen duos of all time, and this movie is one of their best. Astaire plays a performer and gambler who falls in love with Rogers, a dance instructor. Unfortunately, he's already engaged to someone else.
"Woman of the Year." Spencer Tracey and Katharine Hepburn were married in real life and starred in a series of successful romantic comedies. "Woman of the Year" was their first of nine movies together.
"Funny Face." Audrey Hepburn's third and final appearance on this list. Hepburn is paired with Fred Astaire in this Paris-based movie musical about a photographer and a newly discovered fashion model. Hepburn's enviable wardrobe, designed by Givenchy, makes this movie even more enjoyable.
"Sleeping Beauty." Who says animated movies can't be romantic? This Disney classic tells of the fairy tale romance between Princess Aurora and Prince Phillip, who must rescue Aurora from an evil curse. Stunning artwork and a classical score help make this movie one of Disney's best.
