I still can't stand that name but looked it up and it is German meaning shinning light! Very appropriate.

Great list! I'm sure it was tough to get it down to 100. I would add:
Jimmy Stewart & Donna Reed-It's a Wonderful Life
And since it's not romantic couples:
Veronica Lake & Alan Ladd-This Gun for Hire, The Blue Dahlia.
