Small Talk Six: Tearjerker Films


I've joined a weekly discussion called Small Talk Six. Every Saturday, there is a new topic. 

Find them HERE if you want to join in. I'm still working on the button 

"Today’s topic is “6 movies that make you cry.” You can answer this with a list of 6 words, 6 phrases, 6 sentences, 6 paragraphs, 6 photos, 6 videos, etc . . ."

These are my six tearjerkers:

1) An Affair to Remember (Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr). 

I always fall apart when he sees the painting. The music doesn't help either. Builds up until you are in a puddle of tears.

2) Dumbo (Disney). 

I usually fall to pieces when Dumbo visits his chained mother, and he swings on her trunk. The song, "Baby Mine" plays in the background and everyone cries (including the men...you know who you are).

3) The Sound of Music (Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer). 

Weeping usually starts when "Climb Every Mountain" is sung by the Reverent Mother. There are a couple of scenes after that as well, including the ending...more like a happy cry.

4) Ghost (Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore)

The crying happens at the end when she sees him.

5) It's a Wonderful Life (Jimmy Stewart).

Crying usually commences when he comes home, kisses the family and everyone sings "Auld lang Syne"

6) Steel Magnolias (Sally Field, etc.)

The funeral scene gets me every time.

Dumbo still makes me cry to this day. My son stares at me like what is your deal.

I know! And it's never a gentle cry either. It's an ugly cry. I think that it's a mother thing.
