About the Movie

Love means never having to say you're sorry... Love Story. Everyone loves Love Story! One of the most romantic movies ever made also remains one of the most enduringly popular. This heartfelt 1970 tale of the love of a lifetime-the most successful Paramount movie up to that time-received seven Academy Award nominations (including Best Picture) and won one for Francis Lai's magnificent score. As filming was underway on Love Story, the filmmakers knew they had something special-so special that Erich Segal was simultaneously shaping his best-selling novel from his own screenplay. Stars Ryan O'Neal and Ali MacGraw each received Academy Award nominations and became overnight movie sensations for their poignant portrayals of a young couple who cross social barriers, marry and ultimately face the greatest crisis of all.

Cheesey, But The Good Kind Of Cheesey

Here's how screwy the 70s were -- the cornball chick flick was nominated for 7, count 'em, 7 Academy Awards. It doen't stand the test of time if you're trying to take it seriously, but it is an interesting time capsule. Exhibit A: "Love means never having to say you're sorry" *still* doesn't make any sense 36 years later.

Before my time!

This Movie was out way before I was born but is awesome!


The title says it all. As a writer, let me say that the movie comes very close to the book except the ending. I had my Love Story with my first wife but I let her go, live and learn. Don't be embarrassed, see this movie, fall in love again, cry, it's okay and besides, we're all looking for love. Love Story, I love it. Look for a very young Tommy Lee Jones in his first co starring role. GREAT performances, great music!
