When I hear the words “perfect movie,” a particular little group of personal favorites comes to mind. One of the first ones to come to mind is represented here by its phenomenal stars, Sally Field and James Garner…. Murphy’s Romance.
What an absolutely breathtakingly wonderful movie it is!
I recently revisited the movie (for probably the 10th time since first seeing it in 1985). What can I say… I’m completely obsessed with this movie?!
Sally Field and James Garner: Perfect Cast, Perfect Movie
The only reason I don’t have 1,000 posts on Hollywood Yesterday about Murphy’s Romance is simple… I only started branching out to include movies from the 80s. Let’s face it – we’re getting further and further from a decade that often feels like was 10 years ago. I won’t ruin your day with the math, but a movie from 1985 more than qualifies for a blog celebrating great films and stars of yesterday – even if many from its cast are still very much with us and working on a daily basis.
In honor of Murphy’s Romance, I just created a category titled, “Perfect Movies” and I am in love with the idea of this movie representing the first movie in the category.
