Product Description

Amazon.ca

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.

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.

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!

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.

An Affair to Remember(July/57)stars,among others,Cary Grant,Deborah Kerr and Richard Denning.This film is a wonderful,bitter sweet one,full of romance and the charm only Cary Grant could project.
The story involves Grant as a high flying playboy.He is on an ocean voyage headed for France.On the ship also is Kerr who is engaged.The two strike up an innocent conversation.Kerr knows Cary's rep but is having nothing to do with it.Eventually however his charm and charisma start to break through her wall.She becomes intrigued enough at one point to tag along with him when they reach France.Cary tells her it is to go ashore and visit his grandmother.She doesn't believe a word.Well it turns out to be true and Kerr spends what she terms is the best day of her life,with she and the grandmother hitting it off remarkably well.
The two return to the boat and by this time Kerr's defenses are down to almost nothing.However, they have a tete a' tete,and Kerr decides they must try and remain aloof at least for the passengers sake,even though both are now head over heels in love.Before they're half way home a ships photographer has snapped a few "compromising" pictures of them and has started selling them to other passengers.After this they leave their cares behind them and act normally.What have they got to lose?
Once back in New York the two vow to meet in six months atop the Empire State Building,on July 1.Cary vows,in that time,to get honest work and start making a real living.To this end,being an ex-painter,he decides to start his craft up again.Meanwhile Kerr has broken the news to her boyfriend about she and Cary,and while taking it hard,remains friends and supportive of her.She continues her life and Cary's painting start to sell slowly but surely.

I've loved this film from the first time I saw it in a theatre and it began to unroll with that luscious winter scene that has nothing to do with the film and then Vic Damone singing the title song so beautifully. I was hooked, and still am. The love scene with only legs and shoes in a delight. The ending is so corny that it is brilliant. Kerr is a dream - always was even as she ended up playing older women. Grant is Grant and what more praise is there than that? (He's a good here as in "North By Northwest"!) So here was the smaltziest of love stories in Blue Ray. It had to be bought. This is one for the ages.
