Rating: 2/4 -- By the time O'Neal gets around to intoning the famous tag line, you'll be so sick of hearing Francis Lai's love theme that you'll want to strangle the projectionist. Full Review

Ryan O'Neal gives the character of the neon scion a warmth and vulnerability entirely missing from the bestseller. Full Review

Love Story is a three-handkerchief movie if you are hard boiled. Otherwise it rates six hankies. Full Review

Rating: C+ -- Guilty pleasure par excellence: How did this poorly-acted schmaltzy romantic melodrama ever get Best Picture Oscar nomination? Arthur Hiller's direction is inept, bringing out the novel's weaknesses instead of strengths. Full Review

Product Description:

One of the most popular tearjerkers ever, LOVE STORY tells the tale of a rich law student, Oliver (Ryan O'Neal), and a poor musician, Jenny (Ali McGraw), who fall in love while attending college. Despite opposition to their relationship from Oliver's wealthy father, the two get married. After graduation, Oliver takes a job at a prestigious legal firm in New York, and everything seems to be going well for the couple. However, tragedy strikes when Jenny is diagnosed with a fatal illness. As a result, Oliver must face a future without the woman he loves. This timeless film, based on Erich Segal's novel, featured the famous tag line "Love means never having to say you're sorry."

Ryan O'Neal as a law student who defies his rich and powerful father (Ray Milland) on every issue, including the former's love for a music student (Ali MacGraw).

Plot Synopsis:

Academy Award Nominations: 7, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor--Ryan O'Neal, Best Actress--Ali MacGraw, Best (Adapted) Screenplay--Erich Segal. Academy Awards: Best Original Score.

Production Notes:

  • Film debut for actor Tommy Lee Jones, who was billed as Tom Lee Jones.
  • Color by Movielab.
  • Although many believe the film was an adaptation of Erich Segal's best-selling novel, this actually wasn't the case. Segal had actually written the screenplay first and then turned it into a book before the film was made. The book was published and became a best-seller before the film was released.
