"An Affair to Remember" is a 1957 film starring
Cary Grantand Deborah Kerr, and directed by Leo McCarey.
The film is considered one of the most romantic of all time, according to the American Film Institute. [ [http://www.afi.com/tvevents/100years/passions.aspx AFI’s 100 Years…100 Passions] ] The movie was a remake of McCarey's 1939 film "Love Affair", starring
Irene Dunneand 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 Davesand 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 Warrenwith lyrics by Leo McCareyand Harold Adamson. The song is sung by Vic Damoneduring the opening credits and then sung later by Deborah Kerr's character, a nightclub singer. Kerr's singing was dubbed by Marni Nixon, who also dubbed for Kerr in the film "The King and I".
Nickie Ferrante (Grant), a well-known playboy and painter, meets Terry McKay (Kerr) aboard the
SS Constitution. They fall in love with each other despite being engaged to other people. They agree to reunite on top of the Empire State Buildingin six months time if they still feel the same.
On the day of their rendezvous, Terry is struck by a car and rushed to the hospital. Nickie waits all the day for her, unaware of her accident. Dejected, Nickie leaves, assuming that Terry has forgotten about him.
Terry is crippled in the accident and confined to a wheelchair. Despite all, she goes on to become a teacher. She doesn't see Nickie again until she encounters both him and his fiancée at the ballet a year later. Nickie can only bring himself to say hello to her, not noticing her condition because she is seated. He is too proud to ask her why she never showed up, and she will not burden him with the terrible truth of her injury.
Nickie decides to visit Terry. She never moves from the couch, but her face falls unexpectedly as he begins to tell her about a painting that he had done of her. He knows only that it was given to a young woman in a wheelchair. Nickie suddenly makes a connection, and upon seeing the painting in Terry's bedroom, he realizes that she cannot walk. Subsequently, all is revealed about the fateful day that they were supposed to meet. In the final emotional scene, the two declare their love for one another.
