ROUND 3 MATCHUPS
DIRTY DANCING (1987) vs TITANIC (1997)
Delays in the shooting schedule of Dirty Dancing pushed filming into the fall, which is when they filmed the swimming scene in Mountain Lake, Virginia. The lake's temperatures dropped to almost 40 °F (4 °C), and the trees surrounding the water had to be spray painted green to reflect a summer setting.
When Jack Dawson (Leonardo DiCpario) sketches Rose (Kate Winslet) in the famous Titanic scene, it is writer/director James Cameron's hands seen doing the sketching, not DiCaprio's. Cameron, who is left-handed, had to mirror-image the shots in post-production to make the artist appear right-handed, like DiCaprio.
THE NOTEBOOK (2004) vs PRETTY WOMAN (1990)
In 1998, Steven Spielberg wished to make The Notebook with Tom Cruise as Noah Calhoun. After both left the project, Nick Cassavetes eventually took over as director, and his one and only choice for Noah was Ryan Gosling.
Pretty Woman was originally titled 3000, the amount of money Vivian and Edward agree upon for her week of service. It was later changed when the Roy Orbison song "Pretty Woman" was used on the soundtrack.
The latest romance to hit theatres, The Photograph, is now playing.
