A new year is all about looking forward, but the future really means nothing without love and appreciation for things past. As much as I enjoy seeing the latest films, I love watching classic films as well and my latest is An Affair To Remember.
This is one of the most talked about films and love stories and it is crazy that I have not seen it in entirety until now. I am a huge Cary Grant fan and by the end of the film, I couldn’t help but be mesmerized by Deborah Kerr, as well as Neva Patterson.
Released in 1957, Nicky Ferrante (Grant) and Terry McKay (Kerr) meet on a cruise from Europe to New York: he the devilishly handsome playboy and she a stunning night club singer. Problem is? They are both already engaged to other people, who might I add are pretty darn good looking as well.
After falling in love but knowing that they will have to return to their lives, they agree to meet at the top of the Empire State Building in six months. On the momentous day, Terry does not show, leaving Nicky alone and confused.
You will have to watch the film to see how it ends and let me tell you, it is worth every minute. Let’s also not forget the immaculate fashion in the film. Stunning dresses, flawless hair and makeup, expertly tailored suits: there is something for everyone to enjoy.
Best quote from the film: “I really hope you’ve found happiness, and if you’re ever in need of anything, like someone to love you, don’t hesitate to call me.”
Definitely a great way to start off the new year. See more images from the film below.
