50 years of love and tears.

Standard

hard to believe

it’s the 50th anniversary 

of this movie’s opening

 everyone i knew

rushed to the theater

swoon-worthy *ryan o’neal and beautiful ali macgraw

over-emoted their way through it

it was everything we expected

and more

a dramatic, tragic, ill-fated romance

a love story for the ages

 inspiring endless tears and endless post-viewing talk 

going to see it again and again

somehow hoping for a different ending. 

” love means never having to say you’re sorry”

– jennifer cavalleiri (ali macgraw in love story)

(we loved this famous confusing quote from the movie, and had deep discussions about what it meant)

*interesting tidbit –

writer erich segal, based ryan o’neal’s character on a hybrid of his college housemates at harvard:

Tommy Lee Jones and Al Gore
