Warren Beatty personally lobbied Katharine Hepburn to come out of retirement and appear in this film. Though he personally rented a house for her in Los Angeles and had her referred to a special dermatologist, she wouldn't give a definitive answer until the day of filming. See more »
The aircraft exterior is that of a newest Boeing 747-400, however the interior shots show a spiral staircase only used on the older 747-100 and 200 models. See more »

Katherine Hepburn...the only reason I watched this movie...
Without her this movie would be maybe something to watch on a rainy Saturday afternoon when there's not much on cable. But K Hepburn takes this film from "ok" to "something worth spending spending time watching." Even at her age the strength of her character and acting ability brought the few sparks there were into this film. But I've always considered Warren & Annette a perfect match...bland...bland...and more bland. Do they have a personality?? I truly don't understand how they got to where they are today, but I could say the very same thing about some of our re-electeds. If you want to watch a much better version of the story with an entirely different sphere of acting check out the 1957 version "An Affair to Remember" with Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr. Some scenes are a little outdated, but the acting and chemistry between these two make it timeless. They've made their characters seem so real, they almost jump out of the screen. Then it all comes to a head in this heartbreakingly emotional ending, a story of selfless love, I cry every time. Annette & Warren simply don't have the acting ability or charisma to give these characters that certain kind of trueness in which you would feel any great emotional investment. They strike me as very into themselves sort of selfish people anyway, could they truly characterize selflessness?
