4.0 out of 5 stars On my top-ten list for classic Hollywood movies May 19 2005
Format:DVD
This 1957 classic is one of the best romantic films I've seen yet... and as someone who has spent a lot of time (too much) searching for the perfect romantic comedy, I know what I'm talking about. My only complaints are that it may be overly dramatic that Kerr's character wouldn't want to tell Grant what happened to her; equally unreasonable is the motivation for Grant's character not looking for Kerr after she disappears. Love is likened to a perfect, spiritual state of being that is not a choice, and in Real Life, the whole drama could have easily been avoided... but then, why make a movie? From an ideological standpoint, the way disability is portrayed is problematic, what with the overcoming-all-the-odds bit, but it was the 50s. The children's musical interludes also drag a bit. However, the development of both the lead characters is phenomenal due to the exquisite acting and the delivery of intelligent, subtle dialogue. The tone is restrained and the dialogue is flippant and a little blasé, but this only serves to clearly convey the emotional truths of the characters - I'm a sucker for this one.

Format:DVD
I have watched this film over and over again and never get tired of it. The only thing that bothered me in the story is, Terry McKay deciding not to let Nickie (C. Grant.) know what really happened and why she could not meet him at the Empire State Building. Had she done that, he could have at least made some decisions accordingly. If he really loved her, he would have helped her get through this tragedy instead of her going it alone. Even the man she had been living with, offered to tell him, and she said "NO", and, I found that to be a bit cruel on Terry's part.
Nonetheless, I still love this movie. The clothing/fashion back then was fantastic as well!

3.0 out of 5 stars fine movie but overrated Dec 28 2003
Format:DVD
As a lover of classic films I find myself frustrated by the recent popularity of such a mediocre movie when there are so many much-better films out there. I think it may be its reference in "Sleepless in Seattle", another good but overrated film, that has made this one so popular today and even though the 1939 version, "Love Affair" (also directed by Leo McCarey)is considerably better, people, in this actor-obsessed age in which we live in, are drawn to this one because it has Cary Grant in it. Unfortunately this version has no soul to it and the two main actors have almost no chemistry between them. I would find myself nodding off from time to time if it weren't for the nice scenery and excellent story because the actors themselves seem to be sleepwalking through the story. In fact, even the 1994 version, "Love Affair" is better than this. I do like Cary Grant and I want to like this movie more but I cannot in good conscience rate it any higher than this. I wish people would try out the superior 1939 version instead, but I realize that that is unlikely to happen. I don't want to beat up on this version too much. Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr are still good actors and they do a fine job here. I just think that it is a mistake for so many to make a bee-line for this one film in the classics section of the video store and pass over so many other great movies. For many, this is one of the only classic movies that they ever see and it is a poor example to them of the quality of the films from that age.

3.0 out of 5 stars Does romance really take this long? Jan. 23 2004
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This 1957 love story starring Cary Grant as Nickie Ferrante and Deborah Kerr as Terry McKay is 115 minutes of pure romance drug out to the extreme. We begin the movie with the engagement announcement of our sweet talking bachelor playboy, Nickie Ferrante's to an American heiress. He's on his way to meet his fiancé in New York City via a luxury ocean liner. A chance meeting with night club singer Terry McKay, who is the mistress of a successful businessman, changes this playboy's ways. They try to hide their feelings towards each other from everyone including Nickie's grandmother. During this long voyage they fall in love and make a promise to each other. They promise to break off their relationships with their significant others and meet on top of the Empire State Building in six months. A tragic accident prevents Terry from following through with her promise to meet Nickie. Nickie is angry and hurt that Terry never came to meet him. Months later Terry and Nickie see each other for the first time since they were supposed to meet. All they could say to each other is hello. The ending of this movie is what makes this movie one of the most romantic films out there.
The story line is great. The actors are doing a fine job. The movie itself just seems to stall at times. There are too many drop out scenes where it slows the movie down too much. If the movie would step up and move as swiftly as it does in the last 20 minutes it would be great.

4.0 out of 5 stars McCAREY'S MASTERFUL MELODRAMA April 18 2003
By Nix Pix
Format:DVD
Director, Leo McCarey's remake of his own "Love Affair" is a masterful attempt to update a classic for the post war generation. Yet, regardless of whether you see the original or its remake, this "An Affair To Remember", the net result of your cinematic experience is ultimately slated to turn out the same - bring Kleenex!
Cary Grant is Nicky Ferranti, a big time 'dame' hunter who is all set to marry an heiress when he falls, but hard, for Terry McKay (Deborah Kerr), the park avenue play-thing of a wealthy New York financier. As in the original, McKay and Ferranti discover that love may not be enough to keep their dreams alive, particularly after one of them suffers a tragic accident that alters the course for both their futures.
This is the sort of grand romantic melodramatic canvas on which such broad, yet stirring, brush strokes have been painted, that one can not help but become emotionally involved. Yes, there are several musical numbers (a shame since they're neither visually appealing, nor do they advance the story) and yes, the material is heavily dated. But there must be something to this movie - still a tear jerker forty-five years later.
When Fox Home Video first issued this movie on DVD it was widescreen but not enhanced for 16X9 televisions. There was a considerable amount of film and digital grit and colors, though dated throughout, seemed excessively garish. There was also some slight edge enhancement and aliasing detected.
I am happy to say that most of these anomolies have been corrected, providing us with a much smoother looking, color consistant transfer that is a marked improvement over the previous DVD. This one is also anamorphic.

The best of this type which was remade very well but never to this level. Grant AND Kerr should have a least received Oscar nomination. A love story that tears at your heart.
