  1. Christine, your collage is sensational, especially as you have given us a list of all the couples. What a great reminder of the great days of romantic movies where things were merely hinted at and not acted out in closeup as we have on today's wide screens!!

  2. Wow, that's cool, fantastic idea and great collage.

  3. A very beautiful and complex collage! love your illustration of romance!

  4. What a great idea for a collage, and what a fantastic collection of movie romances!

  13. Oooo yummy Christine...all my favorite stars and a gorgeous collage must have been a great deal of work rounding up all those awesome pictures beautiful job!!! BRAVO!!!

  14. Golly, Christine, how did you do that??? Your art piece is certainly a gorgeous one, however, the template design to explain who was who is what really fascinates me. Movies back then did contain a lot of romance. Nowadays it's hard to find romance.

  15. Great idea. Makes me want to go rent some old romantic classics.

  16. An amazing and brilliant collage of vintage romance films- wonderful presentation!

  17. Great work, I really like the fact that you included the names and dates of all the movies. A little history page to go with the art.
