Overview

An Affair to Remember

An Affair to Remember, director Leo McCarey's scene-for-scene remake of his own 1939 film Love Affair, isn't really an improvement on the original, but it's equally as enjoyable. Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr, high-profile types both engaged to be married to other people, meet and fall in love during an ocean voyage. To test the depth of their commitment to each other, Grant and Kerr promise that, if they're still in love at the end of six months, they will meet again at the top of the Empire State Building. Clips from An Affair to Remember were used as "reference points" throughout the 1993 romantic comedy Sleepless in Seattle, which likewise concluded atop the Empire State Building. Disproving the theory that "Third Time's the Charm," Warren Beatty attempted to remake Affair to Remember, again titled Love Affair, in 1994.

I have yet to see this entire movie becasue I can't get through it without walking away...very mushy....the performances of both actors is phenomenal...the plot leaves something to be desired...but I'm not that much of a romantic,I bought it because it is a classic.

Wonderful movie. For those of you that enjoy the work of Cary Grant you will not be disappointed with this romantic-comedy. Deborah Kerr and Cary Grant have some delightful times together and several scenes have real comedy to make you laugh and enjoy their antics. This classic movie offers a great plot, good character development, and some funny dialogue.

i'm 36 and i just discovered this movie. If you love old, classic, romantic, get-me-a-box-of-tissues love stories, this one is TOPS! Carry Grant and Debra Kerr play a coy game of falling inlove quite by accident when they're both supposed to be marrying someone else. The best part is that Carry Grant is a flagrant playboy and it proves that love really can conquer all. I won't spoil the end for you but be prepared to have a FLOOD of emotions hit you when these two run into each other after about a year goes by and they're STILL in love with each other! I cried like a baby...no wait i SOBBED uncontrollably! It was great!

I didn't watch this movie until my senior year of college and fell instantly in love. A must see for all hopeless romantics and those who loved Sleepless in Seattle.

This is the best romantic-comedy of all time. Cary Grant plays Nicky, who's fallen in love with a singer and they propose to meet 6 months later on top the Empire State Building. This has the most romantic ending ever, plus the music adds to it! Also, the AFI named this movie the 5th best love story ever! (Although it should be 1)

The song An Affair To Remember was the theme for my brother and sister-inlaw wedding in 1957. They had their first dance to that song while a twenty piece band played. I was sixreen at that time,and to this very day I still find this movie and song so romantic. For their 50th anniversity I gave them the best gift An Affair To Remember. After all these years the movie still brings tears to your eyes. Finding love what more can you ask for.

Very pleased with the dvd. Very good quality even though it's not a blue ray dvd. I highly recomm. this particular dvd/movie. Price, you can't beat. Now I can watch it when I want and not have to wait till cable.

The reputation of this film as a classic film 'weepie' romance far excels the actual film itself. Two of Hollywood's finest film actors--suave, sophisticated Cary Grant, and the incandescent Deborah Kerr--shine in the first film's first part during their shipboard romance. However, neither star can overcome the saccharine dreariness of the second half after Kerr has her crippling accident (which includes an excruciating musical number with Kerr and some school children). 20th-Fox filmed 'Affair' in their patented Cinemascope widescreen process which only accentuates how hopelessly studio bound the sets are, giving the film a cheap, low-budget appearance. While the film is not as good as director's Leo McCarey's 1939 original, 'Love Affair', this version is still preferable to Warren Beatty's 1994 remake, an insufferable vanity production if ever there was one.

Clearly all the negative reviews of this movie are from men. This is the eternal love story. Truely the love between these two people conquer all. Yes, it is probabley not realistic but frankly I would not like for my love stories to be set in the real world cause that would be a downer. This is the best movie for hopeless romantics everywhere.
