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 AwardÂ® 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 McGraw each received Academy AwardÂ® 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.
