An ideal blend of sophistication and sentiment, An Affair to Remember (1957) is one of the most romantic (and popular) movies Hollywood ever made. Nickie and Terry fall for each other while on vacation but decide to wait six months to meet again because of their attachments to others. When Nickie arrives at the Empire State Building for their long-awaited rendezvous—and Terry doesn't show—he has no way of knowing that what kept her away was a car accident. The film garnered Oscar nominations for best score, cinematography, costumes, and song.
"A winning film that is alternately funny and tenderly sentimental.... Using plenty of attractive settings (on and off the USS Constitution), it is still primarily a film about two people; and since those two happen to be Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr, the bitter-sweet romance sparkles and crackles with high spirits."—Variety
"Finally we get to see the film in its proper 2.35:1 ratio.... It's somewhat of a revelation, especially when the picture quality is so good."—BBC Films
