More Details

Synopsis:
A New England college is the setting for this study of a love affair that is tinged with the tragedy of illness. Academy Award Nominations: 7, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor--Ryan O'Neal, Best Actress--Ali MacGraw, Best (Adapted) Screenplay--Erich Segal. Academy Awards: Best Original Score.

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.
