Product Description

In this poignant and humorous love story nominated for four Academy Awards, Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr meet on an ocean liner and fall deeply in love. Though each is engaged to someone else, they agree to meet six months later at the Empire State Building if they still feel the same way about each other. But a tragic accident prevents their rendezvous and the lover's future takes an emotional and uncertain turn.


Get out your handkerchiefs for this four-star weepie, a 1957 remake of the 1939 Love Affair, directed by Leo McCarey, who also made the original. Grant and Kerr are strangers on an ocean liner, involved with other people, but who can't resist each other for a shipboard romance. They decide to test whether this is the real thing by agreeing to split up, then meet in six months atop the Empire State Building. Is there anyone who can resist that setup or the tragic romantic mishap that nearly splits them up? Can you keep dry eyes during the famous finale? Some prefer the original (with Charles Boyer); practically no one liked the underrated 1994 remake with Warren Beatty and Annette Bening. While occasionally a shade slow, this one soars on Grant's charm and Kerr's noble suffering. --Marshall Fine --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Most of us remember this film seen years earlier. I viewed this recently while on a plane to visit loved ones on the Holidays. The 50th Anniversary of this film will remind us all of the innocent times of yesteryear. Romantic and cute, the first part played on an ocean liner. Playboy, Nicki Ferrante, meets the woman he is fated to fall in love with, Terry McKay. They meet, discover they like each other and this turns to love. They visit Nicki's grandmother in France, and this scene is the one we remember. An overly romantic day filled with memories of a loved one and the sweet times ahead.

Finally realizing that they love each other, but have other people in their lives, they make a decision. They decide to meet each other at the Empire State Building in 6 months. Nicki needs to find a job, he has never had a full time job to support himself, never mind a wife. Nicki starts painting and Terry goes back to singing. The day arrives and...

"The hook comes almost exactly at the halfway point, and while that's the thing most people remember about the film, it also marks the start of its downhill slide." says Peter Harris. Terry has an accident and is transported to the hospital. Nicki waits at the Empire State Building until midnight. Why didn't they communicate? Is this a case of not knowing each other well? And for six months they lived on faith, but at this crucial moment, no one calls the other? Far fetched, yes. But we know that true lovers will find each other and, of course, that does occur.

Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr are two of the actors of old Hollywood. The romantic and innocent era of love. This is the 50th anniversary of the film, and it comes at a time when romance and innocence are at a low ebb.
Lovely music sung by Vic Damone. Beautiful scenery and an age old love story.

I first saw this film when I was fifteen and at the end, you could hear the sound of weeping throughout the cinema. I absolutely loved it, for its glamour, gentle romance and bitter-sweet ending. I also developed a lifelong enthusiasm for heart-throb Cary Grant. I still think he was the most gorgeous creature on two legs. (All my heart-throbs are now dead - Frankie Vaughan, Frank Sinatra, Gregory Peck and, above all, the incomparably witty and sophisticated Cary Grant! I, of course, am still 27...)
Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr play two people on an ocean liner who, although involved with other people, fall in love. The romance is depicted with gentle sophistication; it comes from an age where there was no premature rolling in the hay and relationships had time to develop naturally and with restraint. Both characters have a past and Nicki, Grant's character, has never had to earn a living or take responsibility. At the end of the cruise, they agree to part for six months in order to sort out their previous relationships and Nicki promises to learn to work for a living,
True to the romanticism of the story, he does no do any ordinary job, but becomes a painter and begins to experience success. However, though he waits at their agreed meeting place until midnight (the top of the Empire State Building), Kerr's character, Terry, does not show up. The rest of the film unravels the reason for this until the inevitable happens and they find each other. In the meantime, both grow up, rather belatedly. When the reason for their not meeting is revealed, we all cry.
The film is a taste of a gentler, more innocent era, where romantic tension was still possible because of the greater sexual restraint. It is quite charming and, all these years later, I still enjoy watching it.

Leo McCarey's 1957 remake of his 1939 Love Affair stars Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr as two completely different people who end up falling in love on a transatlantic cruise. Nickie Ferrante (Grant) is a smooth-talking playboy who has a new girl every night, but his free reign as a bachelor is coming to an end as he's about to marry millionaire Lois Clark. Terry McKay is a nightclub singer in Boston and is in a long-term relationship. Nickie pursues Terry, who at first refuses, but the two fall deeply in love aboard the SS Constitution and try to hide their blossoming romance from curious onlookers and the ship's photographer. Nickie takes Terry to meet his octogenarian grandmother during a shore leave, and Terry is deeply attracted to the peaceful haven overlooking the Mediterranean.

When they arrive in New York, they agree that they'll meet in six months at the top of the Empire State Building; this will give Nickie time to save up money for a wedding, and for Terry to break the news to her fiancé. But on their six-month anniversary, fate intervenes and all does not go as planned.

An Affair to Remember is practically a carbon copy of Love Affair, with the addition of Technicolor and the theme song sung by Vic Damone. Grant and Kerr have a crackling energy and sparkling repartee that make them a joy to root for (both actors did their share of ad libbing). Some of the scenes, particularly those of Terry teaching a children's choir, felt like unabashed filler (and some modern viewers find the tap dance scene by the only two African-American kids in the choir to be racially offensive).
