An Affair to Remember

I was a weird kid, and I loved old movies, especially ones with Cary Grant. This one happens to be my favorite. Why? Because of the emotion it stirs in me. There is one part of the movie where an old woman, the male lead's grandmother, plays the piano. It's not that intricate of a tune, but it's truly beautiful. The characters and their devotion to each other is also enchanting. It's witty and charming in a way only movies from around 1957 can be. And the end is so good! If you ever have two hours to spare, you don't mind old movies, and you like chick flicks, watch this pioneering chick flick. They just don't make 'em like they used to.

And to quote the movie:

"No more tears."
"That's what beauty does to me."
