DVD-Katharine Hepburn plays an American spinster on holiday in Venice. It's a lovely, charming story of her falling in love only to be hurt. The cinematography is glorious. Once you see this, you'll want to go to Venice! A masterpiece from David Lean.-Terye

But me, I'm a shopkeeper. Not young. Not rich. Not witty. And married, of course. I'm a man and you're a woman.
