Warner Bros Pictures has put together in one collection the best of their love stories from over the past 90 years. The Best of Warner Bros – 20 Film Collection: Romance released on April 2, 2013 is a look back at how Hollywood has handled romantic stories over the past 9 decades. Kicking off with 1938’s Jezebel, this comprehensive collection contains some of the most memorable romantic movies ever released by a major studio.

Films in this terrific collection include:
Jezebel (1938)
Gone with the Wind (1939)
The Philadelphia Story (1940)

You’ve Got Mail (1998)
Two Weeks Notice (2002)
The Lake House (2006)

Not every DVD in the set contains bonus material but the films themselves are, for the most part, such stand-out classics that extra material isn’t really necessary. That said, the collection does include select commentary tracks, trailers, behind-the-scenes featurettes, deleted scenes and outtakes.

The Romance collection also includes a 20 page booklet with a synopsis and bits of trivia on each of the films.
