Did You Know?

… that Leo McCarey directed both the 1939 Love Affair and it's 1957 remake An Affair to Remember.

… that An Affair to Remember stars Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr made three other movies together. They are: Dream Wife(1953), Kiss Them for Me (1957) and The Grass is Greener (1960).

... This story has been made into a movie three times 1939, 1957 and 1994. Irene Dunn, Deborah Kerr and Annette Bening all played a woman named Terry McKay but her beloved's name changed from Michael Marnet (Charles Boyer) to Nickie Ferannte (Cary Grant) to Mike Gambril (Warren Beatty)

… that the staircase scene on board the ship was improvised by Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr.

… that An Affair To Remember played a big part in the plot of the movie Sleepless in Seattle. Meg Ryan and Rose O'Donnell are seen watching the movie as are Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson in another scene. And the climatic scene of them movie features Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan meeting for the first time on the observation deck of the Empire State Building.

... Deborah Kerr died in 2007. She had been nominated for a Academy Award six times but did not receive one until she was presented with an honorary Oscar in 1994.

... Just in case you want to arrange to meet someone on top of the Empire State Building here is the website. You'll see that you will have to pay $18.45. We recommend the express pass for $41.52 because waiting in line would not be very romantic.

... Composer John Williams gives the highest praise to the theme song of An affair to Remember "Our Love Affair " when he says here of all the songs written for movies this one "conjures the image and atmosphere of the film" the best. And then Josh Groban will sing it for you.

... When Deborah Kerr sings in An Affair to Remember it is really the voice of Marni Nixon you are hearing. We wonder how people in the fifties didn't notice that all the actresses singing sounded suspiciously alike since she dubbed so many roles. Marni Nixon is still working. She did the singing voice of Grandmother Fa in Mulan. You can listen to her in an interview about her career here

An Affair to Remember

Terry McKay ( Deborah Kerr ):

"Being a woman, I'm more cautious and I can think more clearly when you're not around. So you go think in your room and I'll think in mine."

What does Nickie's Grandmother call him?
