An Affair to Remember
Directed by Leo McCarey • 1957 • United States
Starring Cary Grant, Deborah Kerr, Richard Denning
Leo McCarey’s sublimely romantic update of his own hit 1939 tearjerker LOVE AFFAIR is the rare remake to have become a beloved classic in its own right. When Nickie Ferrante (Cary Grant) and Terry McKay (Deborah Kerr) meet on a cruise ship, they are both engaged to other people. The powerful romance they discover together inspires them to meet months later at the top of the Empire State Building. When an unforeseen tragedy strikes, however, their fate takes an uncertain turn.
