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.
