Anastasia (Dir. Anatole Litvak, 1956): The world will never know if the real Russian princess Anastasia met her death at the hands of red Russian rebels or if she lived on. Based on fact, this story is set against the mystery surrounding this elusive puzzle. Ingrid Bergman portrays the destitute woman who remarkably resembles the true Princess Anastasia. She is chosen by two Russian courtiers to masquerade as the princess in order to gain ten million pounds. Meeting scepticism originally from the family, Anastasia wins her way into the hearts of the family and film lovers alike.

Love Is A Many Splendoured Thing (Dir. Henry King, 1955): Jennifer Jones stars in this true story about a widowed Eurasian doctor who falls in love with charming American war reporter Mark Elliot (William Holden) in Hong Kong during the troubled time of the Korean War. Their relationship is plagued by the bigotry of those around them and stunted because Elliot is already married. Nevertheless, their love is true. Under the experienced hand of director Henry King, a real chemistry between Jones and Holden lights up the screen and provides the pulse for this multihandkerchief weeper. At the same time, the quality of the script and the original story prevent the film from becoming overly sentimental. Add the exotic setting of Hong Kong, a fine score, and the Oscar-winning title song and the result is a light and entertaining tragic romance.

Three Coins In A Fountain (Dir. Jean Negulesco, 1954): This charming romantic comedy tells the story of three American secretaries and their search for love in Rome. After throwing a coin in the Trevi Fountain and making a wish, each of them eventually finds what they are looking for. For Frances (Dorothy McGuire) it is waspish author Clifton Webb. For Anita (Jean Peters) there's office romeo Rossano Brazzi. And for Maria (Maggie McNamara) a real-life handsome prince, Louis Jourdan.

Exquisitely photographed amidst the splendours of the Eternal City and Venice, this gorgeous sun-soaked movie will make you want to book a flight on the next plane to Italy! And, as an added bonus, you also hear Frank Sinatra singing the wonderful, Oscar® (1954) winning title song.

The Inn Of The Sixth Of Happiness (Dir. Mark Robson, 1958): Inspired by her dream to be a missionary, an English parlour maid journeys to China and opens an inn for tired, hungry mule drivers crossing desolate mountain trails. Gradually overcoming the natives hostility, she wins the heart of an Eurasian colonel and converts a powerful mandarin to Christianity. But her greatest feat is achieved during the Japanese invasion of China when she leads one hundred homeless children to safety across enemy-held terrain.

Based on the life story of Gladys Aylward, a modern day saint whose unquenchable passion to do good took her half way around the world.

An Affair To Remember (Dir. Leo McCarey, 1957): In this legendary tearjerker, the world's most eligible bachelor (Cary Grant) is set to marry an heiress. But unfortunately for his bride-to-be, while he's traveling alone on a luxury liner he meets Terry McKay (Deborah Kerr) and realizes he's engaged to the wrong woman--and she's engaged to the wrong man. They finally agree to spend six months apart; if they still love each other at the end of that time, they will reunite at the top of the Empire State Building. But the path of true love does not always run smooth, and tragedy threatens to tear the couple apart.

Leo McCarey directed both the original (Love Affair) and this remake, and viewers often amiably battle over which film is the more touching. This much-loved film features the Academy Award-nominated title song and a splendid supporting cast.
