An Affair To Remember

Nickie Ferrante (Cary Grant) is a man with good looks, seemingly unlimited funds, and a wealthy fiancee.

How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

While visiting with Terry, Grandmother Janou says, “There’s nothing in Nicholas that a good woman can’t change.” What do you think she sees in Nickie that others do not?

After arriving in New York, Nickie decides to resume his painting. Why was it important for him to become successful at it before meeting Terry again? How did his painting play into their reunion?

Both fiances took the news of Nickie and Terry’s shipboard romance remarkably well. Does this represent the usual response to a broken engagement? What admirable qualities do you think the fiances possessed?
