「我離港前到過一間精神科醫院。當時有位病人禮貌地問,一個以作為世上最悠久民主政體而自傲的國家,如何能夠將此地交給一個政治制度非常不同的國家,且既沒諮詢當地公民,又沒給予他們民主的前景,好讓他們捍衞自己的將來。一個隨行同事說,奇怪,香港提出最理智問題的人,竟在精神科醫院。」彭定康 金融時報

“During a visit to a mental hospital before I left Hong Kong, a patient politely asked me how a country that prided itself on being the oldest democracy in the world had come to be handing over his city to another country with a very different system of government, without either consulting the citizens or giving them the prospect of democracy to safeguard their future. Strange, said one of my aides, that the man with the sanest question in Hong Kong is in a mental hospital.”Chris Patten Financial Times

An Affair to Remember 金玉盟 (寫在情人節終結時)

An Affair to Remember 金玉盟 (1957)
(寫在情人節終結時)




Directed by Leo McCarey Starring: Cary Grant as Nickie Ferrante, Deborah Kerr as Terry McKay

男女主角邂逅熱戀於在返回紐約市的客輪上,在各自還有感情牽絆必須處理的情況下,他們彼此約定好半年後於帝國大廈頂樓再度會面。半年到了,事情能如願圓滿嗎?







and the story goes 故事:

Nickie Ferrante (Grant), a well known playboy and painter, meets Terry McKay (Kerr) on an ocean liner. Nickie invited Terry to viist his grandma on the Riveria when the ocean liner breifly stopped at one the ports of call , while there Terry discovered the other side of Nickie.


Soon, they fall in love with each other despite the fact they are both engaged to other people.They agree to reunite on top of the Empire State Building in six months time if they still feel the same.






On the day of their rendezvous, Terry is struck by a car and crippled. Nickie waits all the day long, even in the rain. Terry wakes up in the hospital and asks to be taken into the Empire State Building.


She realizes that she is crippled, and becomes a teacher. Nickie returns to his old job and to his fiance. Later, he and his fiance go to an opera which Terry is also attending. Nickie sees Terry and can only bring himself to say hello to her. He is too proud to ask her why she didn't show up, and she is too proud to tell him that she is crippled.


Not wanting to burden him, Terry doesn't contact him, leading him to believe she has changed her mind about their love. The couple remains separated until fate again intervenes.


Nickie decides to visit Terry to tell her he wanted to apologize for not keeping their appointment at the Empire State Building, even though he had been there. Their conversation eventually comes about to why Terry wasn't there and she asks that there be no more questions. He gives her the shawl that his grandmother had promised to give her when they had visited on the Riveria.


Before leaving he told her that he had painted a picture of her wearing the shawl. All that he knows is that a crippled woman had picked it up but he did not know her identity. After he tells her that a crippled woman picked up his painting of her, he goes into her bedroom and spots the picture. He realizes at last her true reason for not meeting him on that fateful day.

Sourced from An Affair To Remember wikipedia




(07-09-09 剛剛在 YOUTUBE 找到我最喜歡的一幕 Terry 在祖母家 唱出像是意大利文版的主題曲) 我見: "Too proud to be the first one to initiate the talk"﹐幾多大好姻緣白白浪費了﹐祇因雙方不願首先行出頭一步﹐其實雙方只是欠一個下臺階。

後記: 寫好之後上網找相片時原來 巔巔兄曾有以下評語: "有些電影,如1957年由加利格蘭 (Cary Grant) 與狄寶拉嘉 (Deborah Kerr) 主演的金玉盟 (An Affair To Remember),電影商後來重新再拍,但拍出來的那部所謂「金玉盟」,不單完全不及之前原來的好,整部片 。。。。。。。 " (幸好我談的是1957年那原裝版本)

後後記:
Nora Ephron's 1993 film Sleepless in Seattle, starring Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan, was inspired by An Affair to Remember, and clips from the earlier film and its theme song are used throughout. This publicity sparked a new love of the film for many movie fans of younger generations.

後後後記: 因為喜歡金玉盟這電影,最後飛埋去紐約 朝”勝“ 上到 Empire State Building 頂樓瞭望臺,從下午等到黃昏,再等到整個曼克頓亮起了燈,看埋夜景,才下樓吃晚餐。祇可惜冇銀,還未去埋 『金玉盟』 隻船去過的地方, 正在積極儲蓄中!

向 狄波拉 嘉兒 致敬 還有 theme song of her greatest movie An Affair to Remember 在背景襯托。

^_* I like the part when grandma plays the piano and Terry sings.


But not the ending, how he discovers the painting is being hung inside her bedroom.


HOW about YOU???

我最鍾意前段佢哋喺隻船埋岸之前互相偷望個俏皮一幕.

嗰幕, 有個鏡頭, 狄寶拉嘉咪起雙眼個樣, 味道出晒!
