1939, 87min

Charles Boyer, Irene Dunne, Maria Ouspenskaya, Lee Bowman

The original and definitive version of this often filmed romantic drama with comedic overtones. Two people, both engaged to others, meet aboard a ship and fall in love. They agree to meet in six months atop the Empire State Building. If one cannot make it, the other will understand no questions asked. A tragedy interrupts the meeting, leading to a typical 1930s ending. Dunne introduces the popular, Oscar nominated song, Wishing. Nominated for six Academy Awards including Best Picture, Irene Dunne for Best Actress and Maria Ouspenskaya for Best Supporting Actress.
