First love scene, or love-making movie, or love movie
00:11
is It Happened One Night for me.
00:14
And I think that that last moment,
00:17
when Clark Gable goes to get the money from the father,
00:21
and the father finds out that he really loves her,
00:24
and he says Yes, I love her.
00:25
Just give me the money, the $39.50, and I'll walk out.
00:28
And he walks out, and there she is, with like,
00:30
with her friends, and he looks at her and he goes,
00:34
Now you look normal.
00:36
But there's something about that whole movie.
00:38
That movie's got many moments where love is just-
00:41
you see it happening.
00:43
It Happened One Night has got to be that movie for me.
00:46
But there's other great movies, love scenes.
00:51
There's something about the end of Papillon
00:53
I mean, Dustin Hoffman and Steve McQueen, when,
00:56
just before Steve McQueen jumps into the ocean
01:00
on his coconut-made raft.
01:04
Dustin Hoffman is not going to go with him
01:06
and the way the two of them say goodbye,
01:10
it's a beautiful love moment between two men.
