An Affair to Remember
Generally thought to be one of the most romantic films of all time, Cary Grant is Nickie Ferrante who, whilst on a cruise, meets and falls in love with singer, Terry McKay (Deborah Kerr). At first Terry sees Nickie as nothing more than the playboy he is but gradually she falls for him too. But as both are already romantically involved with other people they agree that if they are free in six months’ time they will meet at the top of the Empire State Building.
Although not exactly a re-make, many people know that Sleepless in Seattle was partly inspired by this film, but not so many people realise that An Affair to Remember was itself a re-make: in 1939 Leo McCarey had made a first version of the film, called Love Affair, and starring Irene Dunne and Charles Boyer.
This original US Lobby Card, #5 of the set of 8 produced for the film’s first release, has Kerr and Grant in possibly the best scene to feature in the set.
