A married housewife gazes adoringly at a doctor in a tea shop and tells him he looks younger somehow. A baker in a tuxedo woos a widow on wintry Brooklyn street. Two TV newspeople scream about their love while riding animated unicorns.

These are a few of our picks for cinema's greatest declarations of love. Please share your own favorites in the Letters section.
