Tops List of Movie Romances

By Bob Tourtellotte

When it comes to movies and romance, they don’t make them like they used to.

At least, that is what directors, writers, actors and other filmmakers polled by the American Film Institute think. They chose 1942’s “Casablanca,” starring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman, as the best U.S. love story ever told on film.

I saw “Casablanca” for the first time recently, and while I found it to
be a very well made and interesting movie, I wouldn’t call it the best love story
ever. I’m also disappointed that “When Harry Met Sally” isn’t near the
top of AFI’ list.
