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

    • NJ Lady

      How about when Tramp with his nose rolled the meatball towards Lady? Aw, shucks and bow wow!

  • 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.

  • NJ Lady

    Lady and the Tramp. They were from opposite sides of the track. Mrs. Muir and the Ghost of Captain Gregg. They were from different centuries! Wendy and Peter Pan. They were from different “dimensions.”
