The film is considered one of the most romantic of all time, according to the American Film Institute. The film was a remake of McCarey’s 1939 film Love Affair, starring Irene Dunne and Charles Boyer. An Affair to Remember was almost identical to Love Affair on a scene-to-scene basis. McCarey used the same screenplay as the original film, which was penned by Delmer Daves and Donald Ogden Stewart.
Contributing to the success of the 1957 film is its theme song, “An Affair to Remember (Our Love Affair)“, composed by Harry Warren and with lyrics by Leo McCarey and Harold Adamson, which has since become a jazz standard.
