10 Best Love Scenes In Movies

Tuesday, February 1 by Clara Havens

Here are the ten best love scenes in movies. Some are really hot, and some less so, but all are very, very romantic and must-see movie love scenes.

  1. "From Here to Eternity." This 1953 very romantic movie features one of the hottest love scenes of all time. Burt Lancaster plays a soldier stationed in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, right before the attack by the Japanese. He begins an affair with his captain's wife who is neglected and frustrated. They roll around in the water on the beach in a torrid love scene.
  2. "Picnic." A 1955 movie based on the play by William Inge, the entire movie has an undercurrent of repressed sexuality. The setting is small-town Kansas on Labor Day weekend. Watch William Holden and Kim Novak in their dreamlike dance sequence.
  3. "Umbrellas of Cherbourg." This is a 1964 musical in which the dialogue is completely sung. This very romantic film, with beautiful score by Michel Legrand, takes place in a small French town during the Algerian war. A young man, played by Nino Castelnuovo, is drafted for a two-year tour of duty. The love scene with Catherine Deneuve the night before his departure is romantic and heartrending.
  4. "Gone With the Wind." Iconic movie about the Civil War, this 1939 flick features one of the best love scenes of all time. Rhett Butler (Clark Gable) and Scarlett O'Hara (Vivien Leigh) meet up again after the death of her second husband. That kiss is one of the best movie love scenes of all time.
  5. "Casablanca." 1942. The setting is World War II. Ilsa (Ingrid Bergman) walks into Rick's place (Humphrey Bogart) after a long hiatus to the tune of "As Time Goes By."
  6. "It's A Wonderful Life." Small-town America is the setting for this 1946 movie that epitomizes traditional values. Good-guy George Bailey (Jimmy Stewart), and his sweetheart Mary, (Donna Reed), share a romantic "falling-in-love" scene as they compete in a dance contest oblivious to the world around them.
  7. "Ghost." 1990. There is a romantic, heartbreaking scene as Patrick Swayze plays a loving husband who comes back from the dead for one last love scene with his wife, played by Demi Moore.
  8. "Lady and the Tramp." This is a classic Walt Disney animated movie from 1955. Lady, a refined Cocker Spaniel, meets up with Tramp, a street-wise mutt. The spaghetti scene is a must-see movie love scene.
  9. "Beauty and the Beast." 1991. This is another animated movie that has become one the most beloved Disney classics. The dinner-and-ballroom scene when Belle and the Beast realize they have fallen in love is one of the most romantic and charming movie love scenes ever.
  10. "The King and I." The Rodgers and Hammerstein 1956 musical film also features one of the best movie love scenes. "Shall We Dance?" is the song the smitten couple (played by Yul Brynner as the King of Siam and Deborah Kerr as the English teacher) dance to when they realize they are falling in love.
