In the classic play "A Streetcar Named Desire" by Tennessee Williams, brought to the screen by Elia Kazan, faded Southern belle Blanche DuBois (Vivien Leigh) comes to visit her pregnant sister, Stella (Kim Hunter), in a seedy section of New Orleans.

Leonardo DiCaprio
Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet's doomed relationship in 1997 film Titanic has earned them the title of most romantic onscreen couple of all time.

The romance between Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh in 1939 classic Gone with the Wind was rated the second most romantic film pairing, while Richard Gere and Julia Roberts' unlikely coupling in Pretty Woman landed them third in the survey.

Review: 'Julie & Julia': Meryl Streep Shows Her Brilliance

August 4th, 2009 10:28am EDT
Julie & Julia
My God: Please enjoy every precious moment Meryl Streep ever spends in front of a movie camera. People wax poetically about the days when Bette Davis, Greta Garbo (anyone else that Kim Carnes mentioned?), Katharine Hepburn, Ingrid Bergman and Vivien Leigh graced the silver screen: The Golden Age of Hollywood! True, true (with a special emphasis on Bergman that, umm, someone may have a crush on) but, right now, arguably, the best actress that ever lived still humbles us with her presence. The odds are that no popular music artist will ever record a song based on her, but, goddammit, they sho...
