~ ~ ~ SPOILERS AHEAD ~ ~ ~
Terry is hit by a taxi and is paralyzed from the waist down. Nickie, unaware of Terry's situation, waits at the top of the Empire State Building until midnight and then assumes that she no longer feels the way she did about him. Once recovered sufficiently, Terry starts teaching music at a local elementary school. Nickie is still devastated by the incident, but Terry refuses to go to see him because she doesn't want to be accepted just because of her injury. Later on, at Christmas, Nickie goes to see her, and because she is sitting down (and can't get up) he thinks she is being rude and makes some none too subtle remarks about how he waited for many hours for her at the Empire State Building.
This is such a weepy film, and I just love Deborah Kerr and Cary Grant together. What a great duo! Watching this I realise yet again that I love Cary Grant so much and he is probably one of the best actors evah. You may or may not have read my post on double-takes, but I found a picture of the woman (playing Nickie/CG's grandmother) who does that really strange one!
