BRIEF ENCOUNTER has been voted the most romantic movie ever in a Valentine's Day survey by Britain's EMPIRE showbiz magazine.
The 55-year-old film starring CELIA JOHNSON and TREVOR HOWARD, which tells the story of chance meetings and forbidden love, beat competition from modern blockbusters like TITANIC and PRETTY WOMAN.
The top ten were, in order of popularity, Brief Encounter, SAY ANYTHING, LOVE STORY, CASABLANCA, SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE, CROUCHING TIGER HIDDEN DRAGON, SOME LIKE IT HOT, TITANIC, AN OFFICER AND A GENTLEMAN and PRETTY WOMAN. (KAB/WNSSU/KW)
