Quote:
An Affair to Remember is a 1957 film starring Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr, and directed by Leo McCarey. It was distributed by 20th Century Fox.

The film is considered one of the most romantic of all time, according to the American Film Institute. The film was a remake of McCarey's 1939 film Love Affair, starring Irene Dunne and Charles Boyer. An Affair to Remember was almost identical to Love Affair on a scene-to-scene basis. McCarey used the same screenplay as the original film, which was penned by Delmer Daves and Donald Ogden Stewart.

Contributing to the success of the 1957 film is its theme song, "An Affair to Remember (Our Love Affair)", composed by Harry Warren and with lyrics by Leo McCarey and Harold Adamson, which has since become a jazz standard.

A truly romantic and enchanting film. Deborah Kerr was such a fabulous actress. The best of her generation.

One small caveat: the two scenes with the singing children near the end are awful and so out of step with the rest of the film, only serving to lengthen it by around ten minutes. I always wish I could cut them when I watch it.

Saw it for the first time a week or so ago. Very enjoyable. Deborah Kerr was indeed great. It's a charming film.

8/10 (A-)
