An Affair to Remember

Remake of McCarey's own Love Affair of 1939, with Grant and Kerr taking over from Charles Boyer and Irene Dunne in this comedy drama about a shipboard romance between a wealthy playboy and an ex-chanteuse. Entertaining enough while the action's still afloat, the plot later gets bogged down in soapy clich├ęs when the characters debark in New York, agreeing to separate and test their love before they marry. Boyer's romantic gravity is much missed in the second half.

A classic rainy afternoon romance with style. Yes it's schmaltzy but Kerr and Grant carry it off and their performances distract admirably from the worst excesses of plot and dialogue.
