Re: 407 - An Affair To Remember
Ah, I now understand you picture in the Guess That Movie Game much better. I recently saw this and agree with what you have to say. I wrote this recently:
I subsequently saw Love Affair
and liked it better. It has all the good parts of the Cary Grant picture, but without the padding. The problem with the original is that it lacks the chemistry of the remake. However, I gave the original a high 7/10, which is better than the 6 for the remake.
I'm also confused about the high placing the Cary Grant version gets on historical lists. I blame the movie Sleepless in Seattle which inserted several scenes from An Affair to Remember and ended up romanticising the movie more than it deserved.
