Love Affair

Love Affair- 1939, Directed by Leo McCarey, starring Irene Dunne and Charles Boyer

He says-  Superior comedy-drama about shipboard romance whose continuation on-shore is interrupted by unforseen circumstances.  Dunne and Boyer are a marvelous match.  Screenplay by Delmer Daves and Donald Ogden Stewart, from story by Mildred Cram and Leo McCarey.  Remade by McCarey as An Affair to Remember, and a second time (by Warren Beatty).  Beware public-domain copy with entirely new music score.  3 and a half stars

I say-  Better than An Affair to Remember, but I just don't like the story.  Don't know if I got the public domain version or not, but who cares?  Better acting and chemistry, but still....thank god I only have one more version of this movie to go.
