Synopsis


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. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    I finally picked this movie up on sale and am happy that it's in my library. There shouldn't be any need to review the movie as it is a classic romance (chick-flick). The Blu-ray edition is very nice, the HD video is well above average bordering on an excellent transfer, especially for the age of the movie. The audio is also very good, but remember it wasn't designed for a surround sound when filmed, but they did a good job with the music score in the surround. The extras are good, but most all appear to be in SD format.

    Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr shine in this classic. Neither thinks of loving the other but each finds the other irresistible. He moves from being a suave jet setter to an much more industrious and caring person. She's the one who moves him. Can't wait to see this one again!

    This is a very good Cary Grant movie that is enhanced by it being on blue ray.. The story is simple as the acting is very well done. Deborah Kerr is also stunning in Blue ray and the movie is one you want to see over and over again and see something different each time.

    Purchase for my wife. Anyone who is a fan of Cary Grant will need to own this film. It is easily one of his best-known movies, thanks in part to Sleepless in Seattle. A classic romance that should be enjoyed for generations to come.

    This movie is the original "chick flick". Every girl should have the patience to sit through this classic. The true love story line is done wonderfully and for anyone who has seen "Sleepless in Seattle" this is the movie that is referenced throughout the film.

    I love old fashioned love stories, but with a new generation twist. But I enjoy how it shows there true love for each other without them being intimate or sucking each other's face, there's kisses and embraces are pure.

    A movie from when it was a telling of a tale. If you can't sit still for 2 min., not a movie for you. Remember to turn off your video processor or it just looks wrong. Enjoy the way movies used to be an art form, not an investment.
