If you are a movie fan, you probably know that love story movies have been always popular for years. Most of them can perform well in box office. However, though freakily abundant in number, love story movies are seldom favored by Academy Awards.
Of course outstanding love movies like Gone with the Wind, Casablanca and Waterloo Bridge had achieved great success in Academy Awards. If you are careful enough, you will find that those Best Motion Pictures have something in common: each shares a love story in the war. The post will present you those three Best Motion Pictures focusing on love story in the war.
1. Gone with the Wind
It is said Gone with the Wind would have exceed Titanic in box office if factors like inflation were taken into consideration. Before Titanic, it is viewed as the most shocking and influential love story movie. As a film that is almost as long as four hours, it can successfully belt you to the seat with its plot and climax.
The movie mainly focuses on the love story between Scarlett and Rhett Butler during the Civil War. However, Scarlett never realized that she loved Rhett Butler other than Ashley until Rhett Butler left her in desperate. This movie vividly shows you the image of a strong woman and her love with Rhett Butler, though she has never realized it.
Though not as successful as Gone with the Wind in box office, Casablanca is viewed as the best movie of all time by many. Luckily, if you are interested in it, you can watch it for free via Facebook. In order to celebrate the 70th anniversary of Casablanca DVD set, you can watch Casablanca for free on Casablanca Facebook page today.
Casablanca mainly tells you a love story in World War II between Rick and Ilsa. As the owner of a popular bar, Rick lives a peaceful life until his former girlfriend Ilsa appears. Ilsa and her husband are wanted by the police in Casablanca while Rick needs to risk his life to help them leave. The unselfish love of Rick is quite moving and the theme song is wonderful.
3. Waterloo Bridge
As another masterpiece by Vivien Leigh and also as another movie on love story in the war, Waterloo Bridge also gained great achievements. Caused by character flaws of Scarlett, the love between Scarlett and Rhett Butler in Gone with the Wind can't be successful. Caused by the miserable fate, the love of Myra and Roy in Waterloo Bridge can't own a happy ending as well.
Myra and Roy fall in love and decide to get married. However, before their marriage, Roy is recruited by the army to join in the World War II. When the death of Roy comes, Myra loses all the hopes and earns her life as a street girl. However, it turns out Roy survives in the war. After he takes Myra back home, Myra can't forget those miserable experience and commits suicide in Waterloo Bridge.
