    Love Story

    Love Story (1970)

    "Love Story" remains one of the finest romances ever brought to the silver screen. Erich Segal has harnessed his immense talent and dispatched it toward his pen as he wrote one of the finest romance novels.

    From powerful performances to a story that brings your emotions to the forefront, "Love Story" has risen to the highest plateau in Hollywood. The cast led by Ryan O'Neal, the stunningly beautiful Ali MacGraw, Ray Milland and John Marley is truly unique to other romances.

    MacGraw and O'Neal turned in their best performances with "Love Story," and they will always be remembered as the most romantic couple ever to come on the big screen.

    Segal's story is the type of story, which makes me want to live within that world and never leave and I want to watch over and over.

    These are the feelings I have toward "Love Story." True love and chemistry has not radiated from two characters on screen as "Love Story" did with Ryan O'Neal's character Oliver and Ali Macgraw's Jenny.

    This film covers the good times, bad times, depressing times, and everything in between. It is true testament to the talent of the fine actors involved, the writer who penned the novel and the director who turned the novel into a movie.

    "Love Story" set the standard for which other romance dramas should strive to become. EVERYONE SHOULD WATCH THIS FILM.
