About Love Story
Bring the hankies to this timeless story of love between a Harvard preppie and a Radcliffe scholarship student. Ryan O’Neal stars as Oliver Barrett IV, a law student who defies his rich and powerful father (Ray Milland) on every issue, including the former’s love for music student Jennifer Cavalleri, played by Ali MacGraw. The two marry and start a life together...then the Grim Reaper turns up at the door. The film garnered five Golden Globe Awards, including those for Best Actress, Director, and Motion Picture–Drama.
