Film Classics in 35mm! Special Valentine's Day Presentation!
United States | 1939 | Leo McCarey
The beloved 1957 Cary Grant/Deborah Kerr romance An Affair to Remember was actually a remake of a popular comedy-drama made by the same director (Leo McCarey) during “Hollywood’s greatest year,” 1939. Many regard the black-and-white original as the better movie. In that version, which we screen tonight in a print preserved by the Library of Congress, Charles Boyer and Irene Dunne play the shipboard lovers who, despite being engaged to others, agree to meet six months later at the top of the Empire State Building. McCarey also directed Duck Soup, The Awful Truth, and Going My Way. 87 min.
