Love Affair
Leo McCarey, 1939
USA | English | 88 minutes

Co-stars Irene Dunne and Charles Boyer each claimed Leo McCarey’s classic was their favorite movie, and no wonder: the wonderful chemistry between them as they pursue their shipboard romance makes this one of Hollywood’s best-loved films. Elegantly playing out the classic plot (shoreside engagements forgotten whilst at sea), Boyer is the gallivanting French playboy opposite a warm and quick-witted Dunne, “beautiful and bubbling like pink champagne.” Preserved by The Museum of Modern Art with support from The Film Foundation.
