Love Affair (1939)

Leo McCarey directs Irene Dunne, Charles Boyer and Maria Ouspenskaya in this romance where two already betrothed people meet-cute on a cruise and arrange to reunite in 6 months once they’ve put their relationships in order.

The original An Affair To Remember. Watching it can feel a little like spot-the-difference exercise with the more famous retread always there on your mind… but this has enough of its own magic to temper the shared magic. It is all magic, after all. Irene Dunne is pretty special.
