"Love Affair" (1939)

"Love Affair" (1939) Sappy, soapy, schmaltz...but it works due to an effervescent Irene Dunne and mega-suave Charles Boyer. The director, Leo McCarey, remade this twenty years later as the leaden "An Affair to Remember" with Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr; avoid it. Go for the lighter touch of his first try. And don't miss the scene stealing Maria Ouspenskaya (say that three times fast) as the heart tugging granny.
