Romance Classics

Show Summary

Romance Classics is a drama series from The American Movie Classics Network that brings romantic novels to life and screens romantic motion pictures and TV mini-series from years past. Actress Lynda Carter hosts the show, beginning its season with the Doris Day film, Pillow Talk and Jean Negulesco's, Three Coins in the Fountain. Later in the season, Carter introduces the popular ABC miniseries, The Thorn Birds, starring Richard Chamberlain and Rachel Ward. AMC adds to the show by producing some made-for-TV movies, adapting the screenplays from romantic novels such as Gone With The Wind, Romeo and Juliet and Sense and Sensibility. Romantic documentaries appear in the lineup by mid-season, with Carter narrating stories about the great romances of the 20th century. At the end of the season, former Miss Universe Brook Lee takes over for Carter. Lee changes the show's format a bit by presenting more of the modern-day classics, including John Hughes' Sixteen Candles and The Graduate, a 1967 film from Mike Nichols.
