I didn't like this version of Love Affair as much as I had wanted to, even though I have read repeatedly that it is the best by far. It has some good acting and the storyline is very sweet. I wish we could have seen more of the two characters falling in love. For most part of the film (up until they leave the ship), they seemed to be just friends instead of people who had fallen in love. But the ending of the movie makes up for any inconsistencies!

This 1939 film utilizes three major film figures, actors Irene Dunne and Charles Boyer, and director Leo MaCarey in the story of two souls falling in love on a ship that was traveling from Europe to the USA, where each had a lover awaiting their arrival. They must decide if their feelings are infatuation rather than a love that would last. And should they cut ties with the ones they supposedly already loved? The film garnered 6 Oscar nominations, including best picture, best actress, and best supporting actress.

I watched director Leo McCarey's '57 remake of this ("An Affair To Remember", with Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr) prior to watching this, his original version, and although the dialogue and the plot were virtually identical, they both hold their own unique and equal charm for me. I don't think I'll check out the third '94 version with Warren Beatty and Annette Bening, however...

Intriguing to see how slavishly Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr followed the dialogue and styling in their later version.
