Trivia:
After the confrontation with the photographer on the ship's deck, Deborah Kerr turns to Cary Grant and says, "So, I go my way [traces a straight path by her hand] and you go yours [traces a twisty path with the wave of her hand]." The same exchange takes place between Irene Dunne and Cary Grant in The Awful Truth (1937), where she says, "As we go down the life's highway, you go in your way [traces a twisty path with the wave of her hand] and I go in my way [traces a straight path]."See more »
Goofs:
Continuity: When Nickie sees Terry in the theater, she has a fur coat over both shoulders and her left hand on the middle of the seat back in front of her. In the next shot, only her right shoulder is covered and her hand has moved to the corner of the seat.See more »
Quotes:
Grandmother Janou:[talking about Nickie] Everything comes too easily to him. He's always attracted by the art he isn't practising, the place he hasn't been, the girl he hasn't met.See more »

When nostalgic for old-fashioned movies, this is it, 9 February 2002
Author: overseer-3 from Florida

If you think you cannot stand another headline about people trying to blow up airplanes with shoe bombs, when you are on the verge of depression because the world is so hard and immoral and unkind, when you want to return to the Good Old Days of the 1950's, then plop this video into your player and watch two film STARS give lovely sweet performances in a GROWN UP, sensitive film called "An Affair To Remember". Ok, ok, so the Catholic touches go a bit overboard (Kerr in the chapel praying to the Virgin like a good Catholic, while she is a kept woman and playing around on her fiance with Grant, the little kids singing about hell and the devil, etc.) but other than that this film is romantic and enjoyable, nostalgic and fun. The two main characters grow emotionally and spiritually during the course of the film. That does not happen too often in modern films. And you don't forget this film once you have seen it. It stays with you, it haunts your consciousness and your memories. How many modern films can you say that about? I forget their plots 10 minutes after I am out of the theater. Not this film. You don't want this film to end: you want to see the couple get married, have children, see them successful in their careers, grow old together (and you know they do).
