Carey Grant and Deborah Kerr share a forbidden kiss on New Years' Eve, leading to an extremely illogical and therefore doomed plan to reunite. New Years' tidings? Middling. The two end up apart and Kerr can no longer walk, but they did conduct and affair worthy of the film's title and reconnect briefly at the end. Meanwhile, the Empire State Building scenario has become modern culture's yardstick for measuring all outlandish romantic gestures. Good luck living up to that, guys.
