In Winter Wedding, Plain Jane Emily is written off by the hero and undergoes a little make-over (some of it better than others). My pick is:
A journalist mistakes a woman for a prostitute. While he tries to interview her about her job he falls in love with her.
If anyone plays the part of rat-fink Louisa then it's Eva Gabor, snaring idiot men without a by-your-leave. This is a fun movie (even if silly (really silly)).
A Winter Love Story begins with our heroine cleaning the books in the Colonel's library, raising 'mummified dust'. That's good enough to recommend:
Weisz look gorgeous all while being pursued by the rotting damned.
