Interesting Fact: Deborah Kerr played both lead actress in this film and in the King & I the year before. Both of these roles were played by Irene Dunn in the original adaptation of each film. They also used the same singer, Marni Nixon, to dub over Kerr's voice in both films.
My Favorite Scene: Any scene on the boat is my favorite. From the time they bump heads in the pool to the camera being thrown overboard.
A rich playboy is about to tie the knot until he meets a woman on board a cruise ship who changes his mind. To make it even worse the lady is engaged but seems to find her courtship difficult to return to. In desperation they set a date for six months to meet again on the Empire State Building. Will absence make the heart grow fonder or will a return to their initial love shake them back into reality.
-And all I could say was, "hello."
