Fashion Senseless: Love Story


. . . And that goes double for Allie McGraw & Ryan O’neil!

We couldn’t call this post Fashion “Cents-Less” because this movie is still making piles of money! Yuck!

  1. I saw Ryan and Ali on your post and thought – Oh no, Tom has surely gone off the deep end now!! BUT, then I read the caption and let out a huge sigh of relief!! It is the only time I can remember succumbing to popular pressure – I bought a ticket and saw “Love Story” – one of the absolute worst movies I’ve ever had the misfortune to see!! [and don’t get me started on Ali’s personal life and how she abandoned Steve McQueen when he was dying of cancer! – whoa, this is getting too serious.] πŸ™„

    • I totally share your feelings. I was also forced to see this movie… I was the only person laughing in the theater? All of this taught me a valuable lesson… This is how things like Riverdance and Celtic Woman become popular. It also explains the success of Andrew Lloyd Webber.
      About Ali MacGraw: she turned up a few years back on a celebrity supported infomercial for some kind of beauty product… She was so snotty and unkind that I couldn’t figure out why the infomercial producers didn’t edit her out.
      Ryan O’Neal: I liked him better when he was a girl… Lol

  2. I was young, thought Ryan was gorgeous, Ali was beautiful. Like I said, I was young.
    Ryan managed to make a terrible mess of his life. Had I know then, what I know now, I wouldn’t have bought a ticket.

    • I think you have summed it up beautifully. Another prime example of Hollywood manipulation. When I saw this movie, I laughed out loud in the theater, I thought it was the dumbest thing I had ever seen. I wish I could say it was the primary cause for my blindness… But I can’t…

      • Oh you bad boy. Please tell me you weren’t laughing as she is dying? Which begs the question: did your date abandon you during that laughing spell, or after?

      • Okay, this is the honest truth: her dying scenes went on for so long and were so poorly acted… I wanted her to go. I hate to admit it, but I wanted her to just go. When she said the troops would be home by Christmas… I started choking on my laughter. The entire storyline of Ryan O’Neal slumming (unfortunately, it was the movie that insinuated Ryan would be slumming if he pursued and married Ali McGraw…) around with Ali McGraw, playing hockey and irritating his rich father… I can still hardly control my laughter when I think of it. πŸ™‚

      • L_o_l! I remember thinking, at the time, that she died a very “clean” death for a poor person who would not accept any help from her rich father in law. Ali was extremely proud, noble and brave and Ryan was very brave. I don’t think, in the movie, they ever said what incurable horror took Ali McGraw’s life… Which means it was also an unspeakable horror… But we are led to believe that she died a beautiful death which left Ryan O’Neal feeling as if he could carry on and marry again and live happily ever after. I felt like the “takeaway” from the movie was, a cavalier attitude towards one’s own demise is the only way to go and that it is the dying person’s duty to try and reassure comfort and cheer up his or her survivors. . . At least she had very stringy hair which led you to believe she didn’t feel good… Who knows, a body perm might have saved her life! “Where do I begin to tell the story of a love so…”
        Please note, the devil made me say all of this.😸

      • No, & I didn’t see it in theaters until it was reduced to $0.99 5 p.m. Showing. πŸ™‚ another thing about the movie that really made me laugh was Ali kept calling him “Preppy” and his real name was something really pretentious. I’ve forgotten what it was. Ali spent so much time acting like she didn’t care about his money that you could tell ALL she thought about was his money. Either way, she was obsessed with his money.
        I think the main reason that it makes me laugh is it was such a bad story written so poorly and it never reflected true human behavior it should’ve been called “Alien Story”. Maybe, if it had been presented as a fantasy, it wouldn’t have been laughable. Even though it made me laugh, I knew I never wanted to see it ever again. πŸ˜‚
