Earlier this year I watched ABC's Favorite Movies of Our Time.
I have to admit that I'm a movie nut. Really. I can't get enough of great films, they're like my writing muses for some reason. I guess it's because they are so inspiring. You may not agree with the films and actors, etc. that were picked but the talent is incredible. If I weren't a writer I'd love to have been a film maker.

Gone With The Wind was voted best film of all time. No big surprise there. IF you had to pick your personal best film of all time and it can't be GWTW because it's already been picked :) what would you put at the top of your list?

I'd have to choose REBECCA today. Tomorrow it might be JANE EYRE
The old classics fuel my writing today.

What are a couple of lines that you like in a book of fiction that you are reading now? And tell us who the author is too. Here's my choice. "Heaven banished Lucifer in one air-rending fissure," and, "The mountain plateau lay like an altar, burnt offerings shadowed beneath its smoky pall." These lines are in the first paragraph of Shawn Grady's, Falls Like Lightning.  

What's your favorite movie kiss?  My pick is The Notebook.  A kiss in the rain is so romantic.  It’s perpetual bliss as Faith Hill would say. :)

And remember that near kiss in Pride and Prejudice when Darcy followed Elizabeth from the church in the rain?

Maybe this one? Lady and the Tramp

What's your pick?

Second favorite kiss: Leia and Han Solo when she tells him Luke is her brother.
Second favorite movie with few kisses: Lord of the Rings: Return of the King

Love it, Bruce! I'd forgotten about George and Mary's kiss. Love Star Wars too. Great choices. I couldn't resist adding this link I found on YouTube after you mentioned Leia and Han. Enjoy if you have time. :)

Hey Beth,
Lady and the Tramp. So cute! Once again I was thinking about Pride and Predjudice and the last scene kiss. So romantic.

I saw this and just had to get involved. I love a good romance :-) My favorite movie is Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, but my favorite kiss is most definitely from Pride and Prejudice!

Hi Anna!
I can't believe I didn't think of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. I used to watch it all the time. Love the barn building scene or barn destruction scene. :)

Oh, I love that scene where Darcy almost kisses Eliz in the gazebo.(Keira/Matthew) But now I can't think of any other than the Notebook kiss.

I suppose I could add - pretty much any kiss from Australia, Jilly.

My favorite movie at this time is Jane Eyre 2011
