An Affair to Remember Synopsis

Charming "man about town" Cary Grant and effervescent "kept woman" Deborah Kerr meet on a transatlantic cruise and although they are both about to marry others, they fall madly in love. Grant asks Kerr to give him some time to figure out how to make a living and she agrees. They will meet six months later at the top of the empire state building. A tragic accident keeps them apart. Director Leo McCarey waited 18 years to remake this classic story. A charming love story.
