    Golden-age Hollywood’s humanist master LEO MCCAREY (Make Way for Tomorrow) brings his graceful touch and relaxed naturalism to this sublime romance, one of cinema’s most intoxicating tear-wringers. IRENE DUNNE (The Awful Truth) and CHARLES BOYER (Gaslight) are chic strangers who meet and fall in love aboard an ocean liner bound for New York. Though they are both involved with other people, they make a pact to reconnect six months later at the top of the Empire State Building—until the hand of fate throws their star-crossed affair tragically off course. Swooning passion and gentle comedy coexist in perfect harmony in the exquisitely tender Love Affair (nominated for six Oscars), a story so timeless that it has been remade by multiple filmmakers over the years— including McCarey himself, who updated it as the equally beloved An Affair to Remember.

    SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES:
    • New 4K digital restoration by The Museum of Modern Art and Lobster Films, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray
    • New interview with film critic Farran Smith Nehme about the movie’s complicated production history
    • New interview with Serge Bromberg, founder of Lobster Films, about the restoration
    • Two radio adaptations, featuring Irene Dunne, William Powell, and Charles Boyer
    • Two shorts directed by Leo McCarey, both starring silent comedian Charley Chase: Looking for Sally (1925) and Mighty Like a Moose (1926)
    • English subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing
    • PLUS: An essay by author Megan McGurk
