February is here, heralding in Valentine’s Day soon, and the Liv Northgate Blog has some suggestions for a classic romantic movie* night. It’s a perfect way to celebrate this day focused on love! Make a Valentine’s Day treat to eat during the movie or stop by your favorite Gilbert, AZ chocolate shop for a box of your favorites, and settle in for an evening of classic romance and comedy with some of Hollywood’s biggest stars from decades ago.

Classic Romantic Movies

Roman Holiday (1953)

Starring Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn, this story of an overwhelmed, bored and sheltered princess who escapes her guardians and falls in love with an American newsman in Rome is a wonderfully funny, romantic tale.

Houseboat (1958)

Cary Grant stars as a government attorney who can’t seem to shake his bad fortune. Living on a houseboat, widowed and left with three unruly kids, he hires Sophia Loren as a governess; and the sparks fly in this cheeky, urbane comedy.

Father Goose (1964)

Cary Grant stars in one of his funniest roles as a boozy beachcomber sitting out WWII in peace until the Allies recruit him to be a lookout on the South Pacific isle. During an enemy attack, he answers a distress call and discovers a beautiful French schoolmarm (Leslie Caron) and her seven girl students. And so begins a hilarious battle of the sexes between the messy American, the prim mademoiselle, and seven mischievous little girls. Who will win is anybody’s guess, but you can be sure that Father Goose delivers plenty of romantic fun and adventure along the way.

Teacher’s Pet (1958)

Movie legends Clark Gable and Doris Day headline a comedy with class! Gable plays Jim Gannon, a school-of-hard-knocks newspaperman who despises journalism schools. . .  until he sees who’s doing the teaching. Attracted to the lovely professor Erica Stone (Doris Day), he masquerades as a novice in her class. Soon he’s her prize pupil, all the while trying to make her his own prize. Who will come out on top?

If old fashioned movies aren’t your idea of a good time, may we suggest heading out to your favorite theater and catching the latest on the big screen? Movie Insider will provide you with the latest updates on what’s opening when. Don’t forget the drinks and the popcorn!

Thanks for reading today’s blog post. Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone in our apartment community.
