Saddest Movie Ever

MGM

A new study claims that the 1978 movie The Champ, starring Jon Voight, is the saddest movie of all time.

After evaluating more than 250 films and surveying almost 500 test subjects, psychology professors James Gross and Robert Levenson found that the final scene of The Champ “produced levels of sadness that were much greater than any other emotion,” and higher than in movies like Kramer vs. Kramer and Bambi.

What happens in this scene? “Ricky Schroeder’s character cheers on his father to a win in the boxing ring, only to watch him die from injuries, inconsolably moaning over him, ‘Champ, wake up!’”

I also sobbed at the last few minutes of  ‘The Notebook’, and for some reason watched ‘Steel Magnolias’ the other day for a good cry.  What about you?  What do you think is the saddest movie ever?
