6. The Philadelphia Story (1940)

The best rom-coms of all time 1

Cary Grant, Katherine Hepburn and James Stewart are three of the greatest onscreen talents to have ever lived, so fireworks were the bare minimum to be expected when they starred together in a movie.

Not only that, but The Philadelphia Story was produced by the legendary Joseph L. Mankiewicz and directed by Gone with the Wind’s George Cukor, so it isn’t surprising in the slightest that just a star-studded array of talent produced one of the best rom-coms ever made.

Hepburn’s socialite has recently split from her husband, played by Grant on typically charismatic form, and is set to remarry before she crosses paths with both her ex and Stewart’s reporter, throwing her love life into chaos in one of the Golden Age’s brightest comedies.

Interesting facts about BTS
  • The group name, “BTS” stands for the Korean expression Bangtan Sonyeondan which translates to “Bulletproof Boy Scouts”. Band member J-Hope said that they chose this name because it represents BTS’s desire “to block out stereotypes, criticisms, and expectations that aim on adolescents like bullets.” But that isn’t the only meaning behind the name. In 2017, BTS said, as part of their new brand identity, that their name would also stand for Beyond the Scene” which extended their name to mean “growing youth BTS who is going beyond the realities they are facing, and going forward.”
  • BTS was originally intended to be a hip-hop group, similar to YG Entertainment’s 1TYM. This was because Big Hit Entertainment CEO Bang Si-hyuk met with RM and was very impressed by his rapping talents. However, Bang Si-hyuk changed his mind and decided that today’s youth needed “a hero who can lend them a shoulder to lean on, even without speaking a single word.”
  • BTS has said that all of the following musicians have inspired their music; Post Malone, Eminem, Seo Taiji and Boys, Nas, Kanye West, Drake, Charlie Puth, Danger, and Queen.
  • The band’s first English-language single, “Dynamite”, was released on August 21st. Its video broke the YouTube record for the most viewed music video premiere, grabbing the attention of three million viewers, and it set a new record for the most viewed video on the first day of release. “Dynamite” is also the first music video on YouTube to surpass 100 million views in less than one day.
  • BTS has been often labeled as “easily the biggest and most successful name in K-pop in the world” that can “do things no other name in their genre can.” Time magazine has gone as far as calling them the “Princes of Pop.”
