Most Romantic Moment #12
So I know you are probably thinking:
But just hear me out. It may be unusual but just read what I have to say and you’ll see why I choose it.
Marion Crane is a secretary in a real estate firm in Arizona. She meets up with her long-distance boyfriend, Samuel Loomis every now and then but what she really wants is to be married. One day when a rich buyer comes in and pays in cash; Marion snaps and decides to take the money and journey to Sam. Unfortunately, it starts raining and Marion has to take a pit stop; pausing at the Bate’s Motel.
She spends time talking to the young man who runs the motel, Norman Bates.
After their discussion; Marion decides to return to Arizona. However, she never gets the chance. That night she has a visit like she never expected.
After her death; a private investigator comes searching for what happened to the money; along with Sam and Marion’s sister Lila.
So who is the killer? You better watch and see what Hitchcock had planned.
Most Romantic Moment: Letter of Love
So the most romantic moment comes about halfway in the film. Not knowing of Marian’s death; Sam is writing a letter to Marion telling her that he was wrong and wants to marry her after all.
Now why this is so romantic is that between the two of them, Marion was the one who wanted to marry while Sam kept refusing as he is paying alimony and taking care of his father’s debts. He keeps telling her they need to wait a few years, that he doesn’t want her to be living in debt with him and over the father’s family store. However, Marion says that it doesn’t matter, she wants to be with him.
So seeing him writre to her such a beautiful letter telling her that he was wrong and that he agrees they should get married is so romantic.
Also extremely tragic as it is too late.
