Most Romantic Movies on NetFlix Streaming – 2014

>

 

 

 2014 Update:

Our annual list of Netflix streaming movies that are also  on the American Film Institute list of “Greatest Love Stories”. This Netflix subset grew slightly with five new titles in 2014. But we also lost a couple. It’s puzzling – how much could it cost  for Netflix to retain something like 1954’s “Sabrina”.

Moreover the list serves as a snapshot into just how many movies ARE NOT on Netflix streaming.  The lesson is if you really want to stream a specific title, e.g.  number 1 choice Casablanca, Netflix is not the place to do it. If you are willing to browse and take what’s available then Netflix is just fine.
