My favorite love scene in a movie was,
00:11
I think it was Cary Grant and Grace Kelly
00:15
in the Alfred Hitchcock film,
00:17
I forget the title.
00:18
Yeah, To Catch a Thief.
00:19
There was a scene.
00:21
They go along the corridor
00:23
and it was a sort of a love scene.
00:25
It was the most beautiful shot of a woman
00:27
I've ever seen in a movie.
00:29
It's Cary and Grace come along,
00:31
and it's her room, you know, she's going in,
00:36
and you don't know whether she's going
00:38
to invite him in, but in the end she doesn't.
00:41
But I've never seen any woman
00:43
look so beautiful on screen as she did
00:45
in that one minute scene.
00:49
And it was an incredible love scene
00:51
because it was unrequited love.
00:53
She kissed him, and then she went inside and shut the door.
00:57
He stood there looking confused,
01:00
as only Cary Grant can do.
