When bad things happen, you want to wrap yourself in feel good and heart warming. There could not be a greater embodiment of these than Houseboat, a proper romance with Cary Grant at his most charming and Sophia Loren looking as stunning as any woman ever has in her gold lame. Never going too soft and gushy, this is a love story and tear jerker for those that usually don't gravitate towards either.
Also has one of the most unforgettable and loving scenes where Grant and his son discuss death. An under appreciated gem.
