From Amazon.co.uk

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

4.0 out of 5 stars The Hook 12 Jun 2013
By prisrob TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
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.

Format:VHS Tape
The film on which 'Sleepless in Seattle' was based, 'An Affair to Remember' is not just a chick flick, but a film for anyone who has ever loved anyone. Cary Grant smoulders as always and we wonder what takes Deborah Kerr so long to succumb to his charms. Their romance is not the only love in the film though - family is of vital importance to both main characters. But it is their love which really captures the viewer's imagination - witty one-liners, mild innuendo, and a naturalness between the main actors prevent the film falling into slushiness, but the passion is no less profound. Tiny little gestures such as placing a kiss on the back of Kerr's gloved hand and her putting that glove to her face make the emotions come home to everyone who watches, and while the musical numbers with the children can be a little tedious, the rest of the film is so powerful that you can't help but watch it over and over. And if anyone ever asks you 'what makes life so difficult?' just answer 'People!'

3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent video quality 2 Oct 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Excellent video quality. Deborah Kerr is a wonderful actress and in my humble opinion one of the most beautiful ever. And I guess Cary Grant isn't too bad.

But I must say that i like the old one with Irene Dunne and Charles Boyer better, even though it's in black and white and only available in very poor video quality. Dunne sings a lot better then Kerr for one thing and acts very well too, and Boyer is SO much better than Grant, especially in the last scene. And I absolutely love the old woman.

Not the most interesting or believable story which is the main reason they're not great films, but some good humour, some comicly embarrassing scenes and also some very touching moments.

5.0 out of 5 stars A huge improvement over the standard dvd! 20 May 2012
By Nigel Mc TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This review is for the newly released Blu-ray version of the film. Of course, this is an absolute classic which has featured on network TV countless times. The key question is whether or not it is worth upgrading to Blu-ray. In my view the upgrade is well worth the money. The restoration is pretty good for a 1957 vintage film. The picture quality is reasonably sharp albeit that it fails by a long shot to match restorations like 'South Pacific' and 'Passage to India'. However these are perhaps unfair comparisons but I don't want to raise peoples expectations! Audio quality is also much improved with DTS HD 5.1 surround sound. Compared with the standard dvd the viewing experience is a huge improvement and this is the sort of film that can be enjoyed again and again. For my money the film is worth 5 stars but from a technical perspective I would reduce the rating by 1 star purely because it does not come up to the Blu-ray standards of the best.
