I thought of more movies with this theme. Three of them star Natalie Wood, and they are "Splendor in the Grass" (with Warren Beatty), "This Property Is Condemned" (with Robert Redford), and "Marjorie Morningstar" (with Gene Kelly).
Then, there are several based on novels by Charles Dickens. Two that come to mind are "Great Expectations" and "David Copperfield."
There are two films (original and the remake) set in India, and these are "The Rains Came" starring Tyrone Power and Myrna Loy and "Rains of Ranchipur" starring Richard Burton and Lana Turner.
Great tear-jerkers that are more recent are "September" starring Jacquelyn Bisset, Edward Fox, Michael York, and Mariel Hemingway; "Ethan Fromme," starring Jillian Anderson and based on a novel by Edith Wharton; and "The Age of Innocence," (also by Edith Wharton) starring Daniel Day-Lewis, Winona Ryder, and Michelle Pfeiffer.
Other films of this type are "Out of Africa," starring Meryl Streep, Robert Redford, and Klaus Maria Brandauer, and "Louisiana," a mini-series about the antebellum and Civil War, starring Margot Kidder, Ian Charleson, and Lloyd Bochner.
