The Theme from Love Story (1970)

1) The very popular tagline for this movie is, "Love means never having to say you're sorry." Here's your chance to rewrite it. "Love means _____________________."

Sharing a lot and listening even more.

2) The movie was famous for a montage of the lovers frolicking in the snow. Do you enjoy sledding, skating, skiing, snowball fights, snowmen, etc.? Or do you just want spring to hurry up and get here?

I used to love skating..a lot! Speedskating.
But I love the spring. Yesterday I heard the blackbirds calling for the first time this year... so spring is approaching. I feel excited, because I love all the surprises of spring.

3) In the movie, Oliver asks his father for $5,000. The money is required for wife Jenny's hospital treatment, but Oliver is too proud to tell his father why he needs it. Adjusted for inflation, $5,000 in 1970 is $30,000 today. How much would you be willing to lend a friend or family member without knowing the reason?

I don't have that's an easy answer.

4) In the movie, Jenny is the daughter of a baker who owns a little shop in Cranston, Rhode Island. Think of the last baked goods you consumed. Were they home made? Did you buy them from a bakery, the grocery store, or a coffee shop, like Starbucks?

I've never been to the last one.
Baked goods here are either homemade, from an english bakery or from the bread shop where one of my daughters works.

5) In 1970, when the movie was first released, California's First Lady Nancy Reagan said she liked it but was upset to hear Ali MacGraw's character swear. What's the curse word you use most often? (Feel free to spell it with *'s, in case Nancy Reagan stops by Sat. 9)

and: ****

6) Now 75, Ali MacGraw has let her famous hair go gray. She says she's glad to "look like a grown up." Do you feel your age? Or older or younger than your years?

My body is crap, condition wise, like bad wrapping paper.
My skin looks OK for my age. 15 years younger, at least.
But my mind is young.

7) MacGraw and her Love Story co-star Ryan O'Neal are currently on tour in the play, Love Letters, and they're drawing big crowds of fans who remember them in their famous film. Tell us of another movie couple you felt had romantic chemistry.

Meryl Streep and Robert Redford in Out of Africa.
Could have been me ...

8) Red is the signature color of Valentine's Day. Are you wearing red right now?

No. Just a bit of red in the sweater with scandinavian knitting in bleu, white and red.

9) Because Valentine's Day is such a big day for chocolate ... would you prefer a large, solid milk chocolate heart or a small box of four assorted chocolates?

Give me the big heart and a handsome man... come on... I'll only bite the chocolate.

  1. Your last answer was funny! I'd love to know what that long word means... ;)

  2. Ok, on that age thing, do what I do which is to stay away from mirrors, or I take of my glasses if necessary. Works a charm.
    Btw, **** is a fab cuss word. ;-)

  3. Remember when he washed her hair in Out of Africa? So romantic!

  4. Love your answer to the last one. Heh. And I am really curious about that curse word.

  5. How nice to live in a place that has little shops and NO STARBUCKS! My neighborhood alone has at least 10 of them, and very few little, non-chain shops.

  6. Great answers! Oh Robert Redford and Meryl Streep... love that movie! I nearly spewed my soda out my nose with that last answer! great one! Enjoy your week!
