| Beautiful and Dramatic Love Story
In the World War I, British Captain Roy Cronin (Robert Taylor) meets the young ballerina Myra Lester (Vivien Leigh) at the Waterloo Bridge during a German air strike and they head together to the bomb shelter. They immediately fall in love with each other and before leaving to the front, Roy proposes to marry her. However his troop anticipates the embarking to the front and they do not get married. The ballet company owner Madame Olga Kirowa (Maria Ouspenskaya) dismisses Myra and her best friend Kitty (Virginia Field) and they do not find a new job. When Myra reads on the newspaper that her fiancé has died in action, she becomes a prostitute to survive. One day, Myra is seeking out clients at the train station and she sees Roy arriving in London and rekindling their love. Will Myra support to hide the truth from her beloved fiancé?

"Waterloo Bridge" is a beautiful and dramatic love story and one of the best roles of Vivien Leigh and Robert Taylor. Their chemistry is fantastic in the first and romantic part of the story. The plot point turns one of the most beautiful and unforgetable romances into a heartbreaking drama with a very sad conclusion. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "A Ponte de Waterloo" ("The Waterloo Bridge")
