An Affair To Remember
WebsiteAn Affair To Remember
Shot in breathtaking CinemaScope and glorious Technicolor, Leo McCarey’s 1957 Love Affair remake An Affair To Remember isn’t particularly essential, but it is a stately romance distinguished by its two appealing leads, Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr. Grant plays a European gadabout headed to New York for a celebrity wedding to his heiress fiancée, and Kerr is a nightclub singer returning to her sugar daddy. They forge a bond on their transatlantic voyage and agree to meet on the observation deck of the Empire State Building in six months’ time. But on her way to the reunion, Kerr is struck by a speeding car and crippled. Grant, believing he’s been jilted, and Kerr, wishing to spare her beloved the wrenching choice of whether to commit to her, try to pursue lives of artistic independence, but are haunted by what could have been.
