Love Story, written by Erich Segal and directed by Arthur Hiller, was released in December of 1970. The film stars Ryan O’Neal and Ali McGraw as young lovers; Oliver Barrett and Jennifer Cavilleri. Many critics disliked this romantic and tragic tale but Love Story went on to become the highest grossing film of the year.
Check out this new photo of O’Neal and MacGraw who recently reunited for a Paramount Pictures 100th anniversary event and take in the original trailer from 1970.
Yahoo! Movies/Movie Talk Quote:
“It was only the second time in the last decade that O’Neal and MacGraw have reunited (they appeared on ‘Oprah’ in 2010 to mark the film’s 40th anniversary). MacGraw, now 73, left California for New Mexico in 1994 after a wildfire destroyed her home. She devotes most of her time now to animal rights activism, but she told Yahoo! Movies that she was honored to be invited back to take part in the photo alongside her ‘Love Story’ costar.”
