Mann hasn't neglected to include a classic romance on her list of favorite love tales. "The Apartment" revolves around the affairs that occur in -- yes, you guessed it -- an apartment.
C.C. Baxter, played by Jack Lemmon, is an insurance company worker who is looked upon favorably by his managers because he allows them to use his Upper West Side New York apartment for their extramarital rendezvouses.
While juggling his boss' trysts, Baxter also tries to woo his building's attractive elevator operator, played by Shirley MacLaine. Of course, she also is being pursued by Baxter's sleazy director.
Find out how the love triangle plays out in this 1960 Oscar winner for best picture.
"Raising Arizona," from the American filmmaking team the Coen brothers, is Mann's fifth favorite romance film. The story follows a couple who rekindle their relationship while breaking the law.
Ex-convict H.I. McDunnough, played by Nicolas Cage, and his wife Edwina, played by Holly Hunter, desperately want to become parents, but to their dismay she is infertile. So how do they solve this problem? They kidnap a kid.
The pair decide to steal a child from a set of famous quintuplets known as the "Arizona Quints."
Unfortunately for this poor child, things don't go exactly according to plan, and Nathan Jr. is passed around quite a bit. He is kidnapped again by some of H.I.'s old prison buddies and eventually strapped to the motorcycle of a heavily armed bounty hunter.
But don't worry, there's a happy ending.
