Notes:
Film debut for actor Tommy Lee Jones, who was billed as Tom Lee Jones. Color by Movielab. Although many believe the film was an adaptation of Erich Segal's best-selling novel, this actually wasn't the case. Segal had actually written the screenplay first and then turned it into a book before the film was made. The book was published and became a best-seller before the film was released.
