I knew it was you.

0:04:510:04:52

No, no.

0:04:540:04:55

Oh, Stella, why won't you marry me?

0:04:570:05:00

There are such thousands and millions of people in the world,

0:05:000:05:04

how can we be sure that we are really meant for one another?

0:05:040:05:07

You and I?

Oh Stella, do marry me.

0:05:100:05:12

I've had a rise this year and next year I'll have another.

0:05:270:05:30

# And your heart has nowhere to head

0:05:300:05:34

# Think of me, I'll be thinking somewhere

0:05:340:05:38

# All of those things that you said

0:05:380:05:41

# Don't be cruel to me

0:05:410:05:44

# Don't be cruel to me

0:05:440:05:47

# I'm looking for someone to love

0:05:520:05:55

# I'm hoping that someone will find me

0:05:550:05:59

0:05:590:06:02

# When your days are plagued by loneliness

0:06:020:06:06

# And you got no-one to call

0:06:060:06:09

# My name's here in the phone book

0:06:090:06:13

# Someone to call my own

0:06:440:06:47

# Someone who will be kind to me

0:06:470:06:51

# Cos I got no-one to love. #

0:06:510:06:53

# First time, the longing in you wears the girl that grows it

0:11:090:11:17

# And if he relieves, you know that then you've blown it

0:11:170:11:23

# And as life goes on you know you get to taste

0:11:230:11:28

# All you find

0:11:280:11:29

# Cos baby, you're my light

0:11:330:11:35

# Baby, you're my light

0:11:390:11:41

# Next time, the feeling is the same

0:11:460:11:50

# Don't have to show it

0:11:500:11:54

# A window of belief is where you own it

0:11:540:11:58

# And as life goes on you know you have to face

0:11:590:12:04

# All you find

0:12:040:12:06

# Cos baby, you're my light

0:12:090:12:12

# Baby, you're my light

0:12:150:12:18

# Baby, you're my light

0:12:210:12:23

# Baby, you're my light

0:12:460:12:48

# Last time, the years have gone, the moment's on, you know it

0:12:530:13:00

# But I believe in you and now I'll show it

0:13:010:13:06

# And as life goes on you know you don't have to hate

0:13:060:13:09

# All you find

0:13:110:13:13

# Baby, you're my light

0:13:160:13:19

Betty, why do you always avoid me?

0:32:590:33:01

If you and I went out together we could have a lot of fun.

0:33:010:33:04

-All right.

-You will?

0:33:070:33:09

-Yes.

-When, tonight?

0:33:090:33:12

Yes.

0:33:120:33:13

Good. I'll see you outside here at six.

0:33:130:33:15

-All right, at six.

-Good.

0:33:150:33:17

Watch your step, Betty. I don't like that man.

0:33:200:33:22

I think he's poison.

0:33:220:33:24

I know what he's after, and as far as I'm concerned...

0:34:500:34:52

if I went to that place twice a week.

0:34:520:34:54

What your poor mother would have said

0:34:540:34:57

I shudder to think,

0:34:570:34:58

you wicked girl!

0:34:580:35:00

Well, you're quite well again now

0:35:080:35:10

and I hope you'll find a nice young man, get married and have a family.

0:35:100:35:14

No, I'm afraid that's impossible.

0:35:140:35:18

There's only one thing left for a girl like me and that's work.

0:35:180:35:21

Betty!

0:35:270:35:29

Jim!

0:35:290:35:30

Gee, I'm glad to see you.

0:35:330:35:35

Betty, will you marry me?

0:35:350:35:37

Don't ask me that, Jim.

0:35:370:35:39

Things aren't the same as they were, something's happened.

0:35:390:35:42

I know all about you and George.

0:35:420:35:44

You know?

0:35:440:35:45

Mm-hm. Oh, Betty, kiss me.

0:35:450:35:48

Not in the shop!

0:35:480:35:49

I'll fix that.

What you talking about? I've always got friends here!

You never went on at me like this before.

0:42:360:42:38

-It's all right Sheila, I'll go.

-Well, what does she mean?

You know very well what I mean, Sheila.

0:42:400:42:43

I'm not having that man in this house here. Do you hear me?

0:42:420:42:44

I want you out of here or I'll call the police, now!

0:42:440:42:47

You mean it's because he's black, don't you?

0:42:470:42:50

I don't have to give my reasons to you.

0:42:500:42:51

Why don't you say it, you bloody coward? What are you afraid of?

Look, I'm not going to stand here and be insulted by you, Sheila.

Tony! Tony, where you going?

0:42:570:42:59

-I'm going home, Sheila.

-What for?

0:42:590:43:01

-I don't want to get you into trouble.

-Oh, don't go.

0:43:010:43:04

-Look, I don't want you to get kicked out.

-I won't.

It is obvious that boys are different from girls

0:56:010:56:04

and men different from women.

0:56:040:56:06

Indeed, we know most of the reasons for these differences.

0:56:060:56:10

For example, women are made to have babies and to care for them,

0:56:100:56:14

so they have broad hips to allow the baby to be born easily.

0:56:140:56:18

Men are different. They are made to follow a more energetic existence.

0:56:180:56:23

To leave the home and to go to work.

0:56:230:56:25

Therefore, they have a more muscular build. They are physically stronger.

0:56:250:56:30

And instead of giving birth and caring for babies,

0:56:300:56:33

they are often better at giving birth to new ideas.

0:56:330:56:36

They are, in fact, usually more inventive and creative.

Betty will never forget today and nor will John.

if they had made the mistake that Brenda did.

Don't you think that it's wiser to wait for that real love affair

that's there in the future for you?

So, don't be like Brenda.

A magical and moving archive trip through the universal theme of love, set to a stunning soundtrack by Richard Hawley. It takes us on a journey through the 20th century, exploring love and courtship on screen in a century of unprecedented social upheaval. From the very first kisses ever caught on film, through the disruption of war to the birth of youth culture, gay liberation and free love, we follow courting couples flirting at tea dances, kissing in the back of the movies, shacking up and fighting for the right to love.

This is the celluloid story of love and courtship since the birth of the movie camera, told with spellbinding archive footage and directed by award-winning director Kim Longinotto.
