Sad movies?

What are your favorite "tear jerkers?"

A few of mine:

Imitation Of Life - the 1959 version with Lana Turner and Sandra Dee

Dog Of Flanders - 1959 with David Ladd and Theodore Bikel

The Miracle Of The Bells - 1948 with Fred MacMurray, Valli and Frank Sinatra This title definately to be released on DVD!)

I don't like ANY sad movies. I like to be happy, not depressed.

Meet Joe Black. Crucify me if you must, but I get misty every damn time I see it.

Just Optimus?

The first time I saw this I believe I was seven or eight years old. I'm trying to think of something more depressing than seeing just about every character getting blown to bits. Shit, some of the series biggest names were killed off-screen! (Wheeljack and others!) What happened to Starscream was just all kinds of wrong!

Running on Empty - Christine Lahti's scene with Steven Hill was heartbreaking, as was the final scene.
