Not a lot posts or threads about loves stories/romances in movies. Lots of interest in love songs on the Music Corner section of the forum and figured I'd start one over here. I'll start it off with one of my favorites, the 1955 classic Marty. I really connect and relate to his character, and his defining quote is so memorable: "You don't get to be good-hearted by accident... If you get kicked around long enough you get to be a real professor of pain." I see a lot of elements of this film in later "love stories," such as the relationship with Rocky and Adrian (in the first Rocky film), John Candy and Ally Sheedy in Only The Lonely, and others. This type of character development and storyline never fails to capture my interest.
