For the PG101 "Romance Movie Title" theme. "The Clock" is a 1945 film that starred Judy Garland and Robert Walker, directed by Vincent Minnelli, her future husband. Reportedly, it was her first dramatic role and her first film in which she didn't sing. The film appears on several lists of top romance movies for the 1940s. The clock comes from the nursing facility I visit each week as a long-term care ombudsman (treated with the colored pencil filter).
