MOVIES that break your heart

Recommended Posts

I think the top heart breaker was "Old Yeller"  (1957) from other people's comments.

All Quiet on the Western Front (1930)

La Strada (1954)

Pather Panchali (1955)

McCabe & Mrs. Miller (1971)

I can think of a few more but right now these come to mind.

Watched one of my favorites last night:   The Breaking Point:   1950 with John Garfield and Patricia Neal,  and directed by Michael Curitz.

With the ending,  if one does lose-it they have no soul.

I think the ending of Brief Encounter is pretty sad.  These two people fall in love, but ultimately follow their consciences rather than their hearts.  You know that they're never going to be truly happy.

Definitely the next one I was thinking of.

I have difficulty editing the way I'd like to, but must mention OLD YELLER is sad.  THE CLOCK proves JUDY GARLAND could act and is wonderful, but has a happy ending.

I love DAVID LEAN movies and BRIEF ENCOUNTER is sad and wonderful.

I watched that last night too.  Anything JOHN GARFIELD is good for me!  That one is painful.

"The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter"

"Of Mice And Men"

I would have mentioned OF MICE AND MEN if nobody got around to it.  Watched some of it at TCM recently.  So sad.

GUILIETTA MASINA always breaks my heart.   She was wonderful!  And I love JACKIE COOPER

The Burmese Harp is a very affecting anti-war movie and also the story of one man's transformation during

World War Two.
