An Affair To Remember

An Affair To Remember
Released Date: July 11, 1957
Director: Leo McCarey
Actors: Cary Grant, Deborah Kerr, Richard Denning, Neva Patterson, Cathleen Nesbitt, Robert Q. Lewis, Charles Watts, Fortunio Bonanova, Dorothy Adams, and Richard Allen

     This happens to be one of the most romantic movies ever made. And I'm not sure if it is because of Cary Grant, or New York. This is a very lovely movie. And was also voted at #5 of the most romantic movies of all time by American Film Institute. This happens to be the second movie that paired Deborah Kerr and Cary Grant, and Deborah Kerr was not the first choice for the part. Ingrid Bergman, and Doris Day were thought of before Kerr. The movie couple also made a third movie together after this one.

The tagline for this movie: On the Riviera, Across the ocean, and all over New York!

     We follow Nicky Ferrante (Cary Grant) and Terry McKay (Deborah Kerr) as they enjoy a romantic cruise together from Europe to New York. And they spend more and more time together. They have a lot in common too, but more importantly, they are both engaged to other people. The romance they had was amazing, and one Nicky and Terry cannot forget about. But they decide to meet in six months at the top of the Empire State Building. But something happens that keeps Terry from joining the man she fell in love with. Was it that she ended up getting married to the other man? Or has she died suddenly? Will this keep them from ending up together? Find out, by watching a movie that has been remade to be as classic, and like all old movies, the comparison is not even close. Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr have us watching every minute, in love with the story as much as they are together.
