An Affair to Remember is a 1957 film starring Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr as Nickie Ferrante (Grant), a well-known playboy and dilettante in the arts, and Terry McKay (Kerr), a nightclub singer-turned-music-teacher, who meet aboard an ocean liner. Each is engaged to marry someone else. After a series of chance meetings aboard the ship, they establish a friendship.
When Terry joins Nickie on a brief visit to his grandmother when the ship anchors near her home on the Mediterranean coast, she sees Nickie with new eyes and their feelings blossom into love. As the ship reaches New York City they agree to reunite at the top of the Empire State Building in six months’ time, if they have succeeded in ending their relationships and starting new careers. But what will happen?
