The King and Anna

Deborah Kerr passed away today at the age of 86. She is remembered for the beach scene in From Here to Eternity, and most romantics will have a copy of An Affair to Remember (Cary Grant and her, the viewing deck of the Empire State Building). But my favorite film of hers is The King and I. She was not a singer, so the songs were dubbed, but she managed to sail through the movie in the flounciest dresses, undergarments in full rig.

I couldn't forget her in that climactic scene in An Affair To Remember... when Cary Grant visited her in her apartment. It was a moving scene – for a vintage movie, it didn't feel outdated at all...

Yes, the remake didn't have the same punch.

No matter how many times I've seen the movie, I get teary eyed when they get to that scene.

Loved her too dancing with the king.
