Five Unexpectedly Romantic Movies

mr smith goes to washington c jpg
Like the song “Looking for Love,” from the soundtrack to the movie “Urban Cowboy” says, people can look for love in all the wrong places, especially when it comes to the movies. Hollywood has produced some incredibly romantic films that, at first glance, may not seem to have any heart at all.

“Mr. Smith Goes to Washington” (1939)
Jimmy Stewart plays Jefferson Smith, a wide-eyed optimist who is appointed to fill a seat in the United States Senate. The beautiful and brassy Jean Arthur plays Clarissa Saunders, a cynical Washington insider who can’t believe she’s stuck working for an overgrown Boy Scout like Smith.

Over time, however, Smith’s belief in the American Dream melts Clarissa’s heart, and she puts her entire career on the line for him. Though Jimmy Stewart and Jean Arthur don’t even kiss on screen, Clarissa’s love for Jeff is one of the film’s high points.

    Porn Star Runs For Senate?

    If a former actor can be elected Governor of California and a comedian can run for Senator in Minnesota, then why can’t a porn star run for a Senate seat in Louisiana? Stormy Daniels is a female porn star who is rumored to be challenging current Senator David Vitter for Louisiana’s Senate seat in 2010. Vitter made headlines in 2007 for being linked to the DC Madam. Although the GOP forgave Vitter’s indiscretion, the people of Louisiana may not have been so willing to overlook his flaw.

    This year, an ad appeared on Craigslist seeking “a female in some aspect of the adult-entertainment industry” to run against Vitter. Perhaps someone out there wanted a porn star to run against Vitter to remind everyone of Vitter’s link to the scandal? Soon after, a website “drafting” porn actress Stormy Daniels to oppose Vitter popped up. Since then, Stormy seems to have gotten on board with the idea of running for office… Keep reading »

    Couples In Bed

    Call me a snoop, but I’ve always been curious about couples’ lives together.

Taken by real-life couple James Frank Tribble and Tracey Mancenido, the “Pillow Talk” series might make you feel a little like a peeping Tom.
