1224. Movie Call


I recover from a promise unfulfilled. Her Highness Seekingtruelove asked for a list of movies that appeal to or reflect the female heart. It’s here.

These flicks tell a good and sometimes unbelievable story using believable and female-endearing words of romance and love.

  1. Thank you Guy! My teen girls and I will enjoy these together!

    Sir Guy,

    I remember seeing an old Cary Grant movie called “Room for One More”. It was a sweet film about a family that takes in strays and orphans. I loved the character of the wife. She is very sweet, respectful of her husband, capable of taking care of the household, depends on her husband and yet also very strong.

    Also loved a film called, “Goodbye, Mr. Chips”. His wife only comes out for a short time but she changed his life.

    Any recent movie suggestions?

  5. Goodbye Mr. Chips was based on a true story. Sad and sweet.

    The new movie with Colin Firth about the stuttering British Monarch is supposed to be amazing. My daughter (19) and my mother (83) who are about as opposite as you can get in viewpoints…loved it! The name escapes me.

      “The King’s Speech”. I have not seen it yet.

      “The King’s Speech” was fantastic! I saw it three times as I kept dragging family members and friends with me to see it, too.

      This is a wonderful list of movies. I look forward to watching them. I have an old Fred Astaire/Rita Hayworth movie for this weekend. 🙂

    Oooh. I thought of another one- “I Remember Mama”. I loved the movie as well as the book- “Mama’s Bank Account”.

    Maybe also- “The Quiet Man” with John Wayne and Maureen O’Hara. Or “McClintock”? 😉

    For recent suggestions- how about “Cinderella Man”. I have also heard good things about a movie called “Gifted Hands” but have not watched it yet.

      The children and I loved “Shadowlands” about C.S. Lewis and his marriage to Joy Gresham.

      I have always been touched by male characters that are gentle. Atticus Finch, Casper Ten Boom, Charles Moody. All strong leaders of their families and communities but such GENTLEMEN. Oh, my heart is fluttering just remembering those books.

    I looooove old fashioned movies 😛 I get my feminine inspiration from the actresses in my grandmother’s time. Like my grandmother they were so much more beautiful and dignified then the celebrities of today

    Several of my favorite movies are on your list. I would add the following:
    The Best Years of Our Lives
    Lili
    Jezebel
    An Apartment for Peggy
    If you don’t mind watching them on a small screen, some of these older movies are available for free viewing on YouTube, divided up into a series of short videos.
