Open Thread: Who’s Your Favorite Movie Couple?


To badly paraphrase Gone with the Wind, frankly my dear, I do give a damn about your favorite movie couple. So for this weekend’s Open Thread I want you to tell me about your favorite on-screen couple and why their cinematic romance has stolen your heart. Remember: There’s no wrong answer. So share with our readers your pick below! If nothing else, it’s a great way to get in the mood for Valentine’s Day, which will be here before you know it!

  • NJ Lady

    He was older; she was younger. He was married. She was not. They were the perfect couple. I’m speaking, of course, of Oskar Werner and Barbara Ferris in “Interlude.” Time is like a dream…

  • Nathaniel Cerf

    Nick and Nora Charles are pretty close to perfect.

  • Quiggy

    I keep coming back to the same movie. But it IS one of my favorites after all… Westley and Buttercup in “The Princess Bride”.

  • Movie Fan

    Ma and Pa Kettle. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder!

  • rocky-o

    i would have to say michael keaton and geena davis in ‘speechless’…their chemistry just works so perfectly, and the movie itself is sweet, but well written as well…

  • mba2

    Nick and Nora Charles of The Thin Man series of movies.

  • momcat1948

    Nick and Nora Charles were great, of course, but I would have to go with the great Humphrey Bogart and Loren Bacall.

  • Tom

    I remember being bored at a family gathering at my Aunt Fern’s, so I went into the other room and turned on the TV, and there was Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant in Charade. I fell real hard.
    Turns out that scene was also the scene that inspired Henry Mancini to write the film music, so I fell hard in good company.
    Sad that they never made other movies together.

  • Alan Harris

    Myrna Loy and William Powell

  • dardavis01

    Myrna Loy and William Powell in the Thin Man series and all the other movies they made together.

  • James Craig Hallman

    William Powell and Myrna Loy. Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall.

  • Agingcourt

    Erroll Flynn and Olivia de Havilland in Robin Hood, They Died With Their Boots On, Santa Fe Trail. They were a perfect match.

  • Paige Burnett

    William Powell and Myrna Loy classic. But Cary Grant and Irene Dunn were great. Judy Holiday and Jack Lemon in It Should Happen To You and Phhhhfffff.

  • David DeCarlo

    John Wayne and Maureen O’Hara.

  • Joseph23006

    Reading the comments, I have little to add. William Powell, Myrna Loy, Errol and Olivia, Fred and Ginger, Kate and Spencer, and for a ringer Rock Hudson and Jane Wyman, those Univeral bonbons!

    • Archie Leach

      Are you aware that Olivia despised Errol? The emotion you saw was intense, it just wasn’t love. Maybe Olivia deserved a couple more Oscars.

  • Stormin

    I also pick William Powell and Myrna Loy. HOWEVER, the spaghetti eating brings Lady and the Tramp right up there

  • cc

    I will also vote for Bogart and Bacall ,. William Powell and Myrna Loy.

  • Archie Leach

    Tommy Kirk and Spike (Old Yeller). If you have seen the movie I don’t have to explain, if you haven’t I couldn’t explain.

  • Kevin

    I’ll go for William Powell and Myrna Loy, as well. Honorable mentions: Bogart & Bacall, John Wayne and Maureen O’Hara.
