Notes

Arthur Hiller's 1970 tear-jerker, Love Story, was panned by the critics but loved by movie audiences. The sentimental story of two lovers overcoming all obstacles only to be separated by a tragic early death, starred Ryan O' Neil and Ali McGraw. The film was nominated for seven Academy Awards but only won the Oscar for Francis Lai's emotive music. The lyrical and haunting piano-dominated score, dripping with sentiment, successfully wrings every emotion out of the viewer.
