Why do people hate this movie so much? It is a wonderful film , Cary Grant is so handsome and sexy,in my opinion -the sexiest man to ever have walked this earth.. and Deborah Carr is terrific as the love interest. The shipboard fun and the kiss on the stairs , i know if Cary had kissed me i would have gone crazy. The beautiful scenes in France and the shipboard romance were terrific. I do admit that the musical numbers involving the children were very unnecessary and somewhat annoying adding too much extra time to the film but they needed to show her life after the accident I guess. A shame that Deborah Kerr did not sing ,her voice was dubbed in this movie as well as in the King and I by Marnie Nixon but she was the leading lady and they needed a singing voice for her . That last scene where Cary sees the painting and the truth hits him , he is so overwhelmed with emotion that he wants to almost cry. I love that scene , I could watch it over and over again . go watch with your favorite sweetheart and a good cuddly sofa. 4 out of 4
