“Meticulously directed by McCarey and splendidly acted by Boyer and Irene Dunne, this is the first and best screen version of the romantic drama that McCarey himself remade in 1957 and Warren Beatty in 1994.” – Emmanuel Levy

Leo McCarey’s frequently-remade romantic comedy stars Charles Boyer and Irene Dunne, two cruise ship travelers who fall instantly in love despite the fact that both are already engaged to other people. After their trip, they resolve to meet six months later at the top of the Empire State Building, but their plans are disrupted by fate.
