"LOVE STORY" DIRECTOR ARTHUR HILLER ACTOR RYAN O’NEAL TO APPEAR IN PERSON

AT THE AMERICAN CINEMATHEQUE FOR "LOVE STORY" RE-UNION

Wednesday, April 11 – 7:30 PM

HOLLYWOOD - The American Cinematheque presents a special cast and crew reunion of director Arthur Hiller’s classic LOVE STORY, 1970, Paramount, 99 min. Arthur Hiller and lead actor Ryan O’Neal will appear in person to discuss one of the most gloriously sentimental and heartbreaking films ever made. Written by Erich Segal (based on his novel), LOVE STORY follows the rich boy-poor girl romance of preppie millionaire Ryan O’Neal, and "social zero" Ali MacGraw, as they first trade verbal fireworks, and then fall truly, madly in love against the turbulent backdrop of Harvard in the early 70’s. Beautifully acted by O’Neal and MacGraw, and sensitively directed by Arthur Hiller (THE IN-LAWS, THE HOSPITAL), LOVE STORY is as much a landmark of pop culture as Elton John’s "Your Song" or Jonathan Livingston Seagull. (LOVE STORY will soon be released on DVD by Paramount Home Video. "Love means never having to say you’re sorry ..." Discussion following with director Arthur Hiller, actor Ryan O’Neal and other cast & crew members (TBA as they are confirmed). All guests are subject to their availability. All screenings are at the newly renovated Lloyd E. Rigler Theatre at the historic Egyptian (6712 Hollywood Boulevard between Highland and Las Palmas) in Hollywood. General admission $8.
