Description

These are some of the greatest true love stories ever. Forged in the 1930s, 40s, and 50s, a golden age of romance, they flourished - and sometimes floundered - in the spotlight of global attention.

Great Romances unlocks the secrets to some of the great love affairs of our age: the secret romances, the clandestine affairs and the women who inspired some of the 20th Century`s most dynamic characters. In candid and often previously unseen footage, the true stories of how their relationships started, blossomed and occasionally ended in heartbreak or scandal, are finally revealed.

Jackie Kennedy and JFK:

Jackie Bouvier`s marriage to JFK sealed a high profile political relationship but there was far more to Jackie than a dutiful wife coping with her husband`s philanderings.

Juan and Evita Peron:

Was it simply love for Juan Peron or burning ambition, that set Evita Duarte on the road from rags to riches and corruption, to become Argentina`s First Lady?

Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor:

They were Hollywood`s greatest match; a couple that could live neither with nor without each other.

Laurence Olivier and Vivien Leigh:

In what became one of Hollywood`s most fascinating and stormiest affairs, two personal and public lives were ultimately broken by the pressure of their own success.

Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall:

It was almost love at first sight when the moody tough guy played opposite a young, beautiful actress...

Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward:

Their enduring marriage is an antidote to cynics who claim that genuine romance cannot flourish in Tinseltown.

Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh:

In the early Fifties it was hard to decide who was prettier - dashing Tony Curtis, hero of countless Universal hokum adventures, or his beautiful wife. She loyally supported him by subordinating her career to his and providing him with a famous daughter.
