5 Classic Films You Must See

Calling all classic-film lovers!
Considering how rainy it's been the past week, it's the perfect time to cozy up by the fire place with some tea or cocoa and enjoy a nice, romantic, classic film. Being a classic film fanatic myself, I've decided to compile and share a list of few of my favorite films that I would consider "must-sees!"

If you’re a classic film lover, have a nostalgia for the romance and simplicity of how movies "used to be," or simply enjoy watching icons like Gary Cooper, Audrey Hepburn, Rock Hudson, Bobby Darin, and Marylyn Monroe hit the big screen—then you're in for a treat. Get ready to get cozy and enjoy any of these timeless classics. Happy movie watching :-)

Taking place along a beautiful Italian coastline scenery, an American Millionaire (Rock Hudson) returns to his luxurious Italian villa earlier than usual only to find it being used and run as a hotel by his major domo Maurice (Walter Slezak). The millionaire’s plan for a romantic weekend getaway with his very beautiful, Italian,ex-lover, Lisa (Gina Lollobrigida) goes awry after a group of young tourist girls (led by Sandra Dee) and hormone-raged boys (led by Bobby Darrin) are forced to stay at the villa after having nowhere else to go.

#2. Sabrina (1954)
The daughter (Audrey Hepburn) of a chaffeur who works for a very wealthy family grows up hopelessly in love with one of their "playboy" sons (William Holden). After leaving for culinary school in the city of love, Paris, she returns a new woman with a newly-gained affection from the man she admired. However, her love is put in jeopardy when the eldest son (Humphrey Bogart) attempts to break them apart in fear of losing a buisness conglomerate.

#3. Three Coins in the Fountain

Three American secretaries living in Rome, Anita (Jean Peters) , Frances (Dorothy McGuire) , and Maria (Maggie McNamara) , end up finding love in the most unexpected ways after throwing some coins in the famous Trevi Fountain.

Billionaire Jean-Marc Clement (Yves Montand ) falls for a show biz girl Amanda Dell (Marylyn Monroe) and desperately attempts to win her over by trying very hard to become a skilled actor, comedian, and singer—none of which he is naturally good at.

Three young women Schatza Page (Lauren Becall) Loco Dempsey (Betty Grable)and Pola Debevoise (Marylyn Monroe) embark on a mission to “catch” the richest millionaire for themselves as a husband. They lease a luxurious apartment and afford their living there by selling all of the owner’s furniture! All three fall in love, but not in the way they hoped for!
