Saturday 9: The Theme From Love Story










 




Saturday 9: The Theme from Love Story (1970)
In honor of Valentine's Day. Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

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 _____________________."

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 do enjoy the snow, especially snow cream! I was hoping for a snow while Peter was home, as he is usually working or we've been on vacation during the snows we've had the past few years. Now that he has 2 weeks home, it would be fun to go out in the snow together! We enjoyed our snow days alast year at Logan & Lindsey's.


The weather doesn't really affect me, because I'm home all winter, but I feel bad for and worry about those who have to work in it and/or travel in bad weather.

(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 would lend what I could afford, but I would like to know the need.


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 made an Oatmeal Cake w/Coconut Pecan Frosting for Valentine's Day (I know, I know...where's the Red Velvet???)


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?

I never curse... ;0)

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?

I feel my age....but somedays I think there is no way I'm 50!! :O)

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.


Diane Lane and Richard Gere (loved them in Nights in Rodanthe).

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

I wore my (last year's deal of the day) Valentine's Day scarf to church.

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?

While chocolates would probably be my last choice for a Valentine's Day gift, a small box of assorted would be just fine!

#AvalonValentine My dad used to always give my four sisters and me Russell Stover candy on Valentine's Day growing up!
