Heartwarming / Clash of the Titans (1981)

  • Perseus' explanation to Andromeda of his affections for her comes across as rather Narmish, but adorable at the same time.
    Perseus: Just believe me when I say I that I did see you. And the sight of you burst straight through me like an arrow. ...From that moment, I knew that I loved you.
  • Athena's affection for her pet owl.
  • I'm not sure if this should count but, I once read a comic book based on the 1980s film. The comic story took place after the film. Calibos escaped the Underworld and imprisoned and tortured Perseus. Just when all hope for Perseus seemed lost and he was about to give in to his despair, his sidekick Bubo, the Mechanical Owl swooped in to save his life by attacking Calibos himself, this not only saves Perseus life but inspires him not to give up and fight back against Calibos.

  • Ammon (apparently) learns how to understand Bubo when he assures him at the end that there will most certainly be a place for him in his epic poem about Perseus.
  • The smile Andromeda (Judi Bowker) gives when Perseus solves the riddle and declares she and the city are free is one million watt radiant. You could tell the poor girl hadn't had reason to smile for a long time, and she made the most of that first opportunity.
  • The final lines of the film, a monologue given by Zeus after Hera expresses her concern that Gods Need Prayer Badly, magnificently orated by Lawrence Olivier.
    Perseus and Andromeda will be happy together. Have fine sons... rule wisely... And to perpetuate the story of his courage, I command that from henceforth, he will be set among the stars and constellations. He, Perseus, the lovely Andromeda, the noble Pegasus, and even the vain Cassiopeia. Let the stars be named after them forever. As long as man shall walk the Earth and search the night sky in wonder, they will remember the courage of Perseus forever. Even if we, the gods, are abandoned or forgotten, the stars will never fade. Never. They will burn till the end of the time.
