Love Films from the 20th Century

Love is a recurrent topic in the big screen. If we were about to recount all movies about love, the list would never end. Since that would be a colossal task, we are sticking to those movies that are named just Love.

The first one was released in 1919, and ever since more than 25 other movies with that title have been launched. We have taken a trip to the past and will show you a recount of all the movies of the 20th century. Some of them are classics. Have you seen them all?

Love Film from 1919

The first film named love is a short comedy from North America. Starred by Fatty Arbuckle. The poster shows her in a caricatured way next to a man that becomes her husband during the movie. The plot is really entertaining. It is the story of the rehearsal of a wedding in which the bride is dismissed and replaced with a hired girl. Things get interesting as you discover that the hired girl is…

I am not going to tell. It would be a spoiler. Watch Love, the first love film of the 20th century.


Love Film from 1927

The love film from 1927 was produced by MGM as an adaptation of Tolstoy’s novel Anna Karenina. The original name had nothing to do with heart images. It was only called heat. However, they decided to change the name at the last minute. For those who like Tolstoy’s story, it is a must see.


Love Film from 1971

A few years had passed before the next love film was released. In 1971, Hungary produced this drama, directed by Karoly Makk. Although the movie was chosen to compete for an Oscar as best foreign language film, the Academy board rejected it.

That didn’t stop Love from becoming a classic. In 2016 it was picked by the Cannes Film Festival as part of their classic selection. A greater honor than winning the Oscar in their time.


Love Film from 1991

In 1991 Love was just a remake of a movie from Bollywood. Prema was the original film, and this second try was not very successful due to a drastic change of the finale. The plot is a mix of heart images plus a police novel. Actors are average, and the best of it is the soundtrack, featuring Sripathi Panditaradhyula Balasubrahmanyam and Krishnan Nair Shantakumari Chithra.
