Camille (1936)

If you like– Moulin Rouge, Pretty Woman, Romeo & Juliet

Synopsis- You know the story. A beautiful “woman of ill repute” is dating a wealthy aristocrat.  She doesn’t care about anything or anyone, just uses men for their money and possessions. Suddenly, the man of her dreams shows up! He’s poor and convinces her that she doesn’t need money, and they run away together.  Of course, they’re far too happy at this point, so something tragic has to happen (no spoilers here!) Grab a “Steel Magnolias” size tissue box.

Why it’s better– One word: Garbo
