You might have to do some heavy hunting for this one, but it is just delicious THE STATION AGENT- probably the one movie with the most awards won that no one ever heard about..... yeah, i'm including this under love stories, wanna make sumthin' of it???

The Other Side of Heaven....it's a Disney movie with Anne Hathaway, and again i'll watch anything with Anne Hathaway...

Did anyone mention Serendipity, nice movie.... john cusack i think and darn, that actress i can never remember her name!!!

going back years again.... Julia with Jane Fonda and Vanessa Redgrave.... it was Meryl Streep's first movie i think, blink and you won't see her..... i'll get a lot of flack over this as a love movie, but i'm stickin' to my guns!!!!

The Remains of the Day (1993), directed by James Ivory. Stars Anthony Hopkins, Emma Thompson, James Fox, and Christopher Reeve.

Flash of Genius (2008). Stars Greg Kinnear. Based on Robert Kearns, who invented the intermittent windshield wiper and his legal battle with Ford Motor Company (I wonder how that turned out!).

Meet Me in St. Louis (1944), directed by Vincente Minnelli. Stars Judy Garland and Mary Astor. June Lockhart is in it to - she played the mom in Lost in Space. Beautiful sets, color, costumes. A joy to watch.

The Shop Around the Corner (1940), directed by Ernst Lubitsch. Stars Margaret Sullavan, James Stewart, and Frank Morgan (aka The Wizard in The Wizard of Oz).

In the Good Old Summertime (1949), the remake of The Shop Around the Corner. Stars Judy Garland, Van Johnson, and Buster Keaton.

Pygmalion (1938). Stars Leslie Howard and Wendy Hiller. Was remade into My Fair Lady.

Make Way for Tomorrow (1937), directed by Leo McCarey. Orson Welles said of Make Way for Tomorrow, It would make a stone cry.

Love Affair (1939) and / or An Affair to Remember (1959). Both are excellent, and the same story! Leo McCarey decided to direct the same movie again. The first has Irene Dunne & Charles Boyer, the second Cary Grant & Deborah Kerr. I like Love Affair the best.

It seems that the only time I hear of these is through YouTube recommendations, and then -- most of the time -- only to find that they have either do not receive widespread distribution or have already left the theaters, and are not available for purchase (DVD).

Does it also have to be "protected" so they don't die from laughter?

If not, then "A New Leaf" (1971)
