An Affair To Remember

This movie is a love story of legend. Cary Grant and Deborah Carr star in this movie that is very well known as one of the greatest love stories in cinematic history. The reunion site in this film is still spoken of in many movies today. The film is simply unforgettable and some critics rank it up there along with Casablanca as silver screen lore. If you don’t know of the destination site I speak of in the opening paragraph then I suggest you rent this movie today. I found it for free on Xfinity. You may have to add it to your Netflix queue. Either way you will not be disappointed when you see this movie. While I admit the last twenty minutes did seem to drag on forever the ending is well worth the wait. Both Deborah Carr and Cary Grant were screen legends of their time. The pairing of the two makes this movie famous from the get go and a sure fire hit in 1957. While neither was nominated for an Academy Award in this film the movie did pull in 4 Oscar nods. They were Best Music, Best Song, Best Costume Design and Best Cinematography. They were all worthy nominees and part of what made this film so famous. This film is a classic in every way. A boy meets girls story that has many elements in romantic films today. I recommend this film to my younger readers. You may not love it but I am sure you will like it. You may even tell your friends about it. Just remember Matthew told you to go see it right away. Grade A-

A note from an editor!

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for the time and effort you put into this piece, especially on a Saturday morning. I can tell you definitely took good notes of everything that was going on during the event!

We still have some work to do before this piece is ready to print. Your piece has a lot of information, but it doesn’t sound like a news article. What was the point of his speech/presentation? Why was he addressing this audience? What is Vanguard? What does the company do – who does it serve? You spend a lot of time narrating (for example, how he was injured), but did not report on the purpose of the event. You can maybe mention his appearance/joking about it in a sentence or two, but do not take several paragraphs to do so. Also, I like how you mentioned where the name “Vanguard” comes from.

There are a lot of spelling errors in this piece – make sure you proof read each sentence carefully.

I know I am getting back to you a little later I hoped, and I’m sorry about that! But if you have time tonight, please go through my suggestions and try to rework your piece. You can send me what you have tonight/tomorrow morning. Please bring a copy of it to the meeting tomorrow and we will discuss it further from there.

Once again, thanks for your hard work and promptness! Remember this is a learning process, and we are all part of the Waltonian team!

Talk to you soon!
