As we approach Valentine’s Day (yes, it’s just a few weeks away) I think it’s only fitting that the topic of romance come into play in anticipation of the day meant to celebrate all things feelings. I’m not sure about you, but I have actually never celebrated Valentine’s Day with a loved one not related to me. Instead I spend the day (or week) loading up on conversational hearts, Reese’s Peanut Butter cups, and a collection of melodramas so depressing I become skeptical that love can actually end in anything but death. Regardless of my tendency to eat my feelings while crying over the tragic love found in Douglas Sirk films, I do enjoy happy love stories and tend to pair the sadder movies with some of my must-have romances. In honor of the big V-Day, I’d like to share my favorite 14 romantic scenes and also open it up the floor to hear your suggestions. Today is my bottom seven romantic scenes, and next week we’ll post the remainder. I like to keep you all on tenterhooks.

Wait Until Dark is undoubtedly one of the most terrifying movies made in the 1960s, and it’s probably the scariest thing Audrey Hepburn ever starred in (unless you’re deathly afraid of vocal coaches (or were really hit hard by Charade)). Here she plays a blind woman (Hepburn even learned to read Braille for the role) who has a trio of villains (led in a dynamite role by Alan Arkin) in her apartment after a doll they believe is filled with delicious heroin. In a deft move, the film focuses directly on Hepburn’s Susy Hendrix, but her character doesn’t even make it to the screen until almost half an hour into the action. It’s an incredibly taut thriller that stays just as frightening on repeat viewings.

Your weekly fix of great movies made before you were born that you should check out before you die. Last month we celebrated Bette Davis, and this week, it’s time to celebrate the anniversary of another star’s birthday. Audrey Hepburn needs no introduction, but Sabrina gave her a second one. After Roman Holiday, she became a bona fide star, and her follow-up saw her playing romantically confused with William Holden and Humphrey Bogart. It’s an example of all the wrong pieces coming together to make a sweet, romantic, funny film. Hepburn wasn’t nearly as prolific as other actors, but she managed to find projects that either worked perfectly or were made perfect by her huge brown eyes and powerful innocence. This movie is no different, and it carries all the romanticism of Roman Holiday without ever having to leave the country.

Every day, come rain or shine or internet tubes breaking, Film School Rejects showcases a trailer from the past. I love this trailer. So what? So plenty! Audrey Hepburn fans rejoice as she struggles to find love in wacky, old New York. It’s like Sex and the City before Sex and the City, and it stays for breakfast. There’s nothing like a woman in sunglasses, smoking from an incredibly long cigarette holder, and there’s nothing like Mickey Rooney inexplicably playing an Asian man. Think you know what it is? Check the trailer out for yourself:
