The romances of Hollywood's Golden Age unveil what love was like in a time without the Internet, cellphones and Skype. Love was revealed on celluloid -- and in handwritten love letters between the biggest of the silver-screen stars.

Orson Welles once wrote to Rita Hayworth, "I suppose most of us are lonely in this big world, but we must fall tremendously in love to find it out. The cure is the discovery of our need for company -- I mean company in the very special sense we've come to understand since we happened to each other -- you and I."

Romance was tumultuous, iconic and pure for these faces of filmdom. Their love stories are the stuff of Hollywood legend.

This Valentine's Day, take a trip back in time and discover the passionate romances of Hollywood's Golden Age.
