Watch: Love Story 1970 123movies, Full Movie Online – The love story of young adults Oliver Barrett IV and Jenny Cavilleri is told. Oliver comes from an extremely well off and old money New England family, the Barrett name which holds much gravitas and which is plastered especially all over Harvard where Oliver is in pre-law. Like those before him, he plans on attending Harvard Law School, which is not an issue in either the school not accepting him or he not wanting to attend. He has an extremely stiff relationship with his parents, especially his father, Oliver Barrett III, who loves his son in the old school way. Jenny, a music student at Radcliffe, comes from a working class Rhode Island background, she working her way through the program before she plans on going to Paris to further her studies. Unlike Oliver’s relationship with his father, Jenny has a very casual one with her baker father, who she calls by his given name Phil. When Oliver and Jenny meet, there are immediate fireworks – she always with a quick quip to put him in his place – both of a good and bad kind, but they both quickly come to the realization that they are in love with each other. They have many obstacles to overcome in having a committed relationship, outwardly his father’s disapproval of someone like her not being Barrett material being arguably the the biggest. However, other things that happen in the natural course of life and death may trump all..
Plot: Harvard Law student Oliver Barrett IV and music student Jennifer Cavilleri share a chemistry they cannot deny – and a love they cannot ignore. Despite their opposite backgrounds, the young couple put their hearts on the line for each other. When they marry, Oliver’s wealthy father threatens to disown him. Jenny tries to reconcile the Barrett men, but to no avail.

Ryan O’Neal (“Oliver”) is the son of a wealthy family who falls in love with “Jenny”(Ali McGraw) – a working class girl of whom his father (Ray Milland) does not approve. When the couple decide they are serious, his relationship with his father breaks down. He is studying law, qualifies third in his class at Harvard, gets a decent job and their now married life together looks set fair – until, that is, they struggle to conceive a child. A visit to the doctor presents their idyllic lifestyle with a massive shock and the two, at just twenty four years of age, must come to terms with a looming tragedy. There is quite a bit of engaging, first love, chemistry between these actors, and the script is peppered with some gentle humour as their lively romance blossoms in front of us. The production is adequate, all it needs to be in a performance driven film like this but the nature of the ending served little purpose and felt really quite unnecessarily unfulfilling and downbeat. It is a good film, but I suspect that Francis Lai’s theme tune will long outlive the memory of anything we see on screen.
Review By: CinemaSerf

Well acted tear-jerker has some nice scenes and dialogue between Ryan O’Neil and Ali MacGraw, and thankfully not overly schmaltzy. Today this sort of thing would be on Lifetime but back in 70 was a box office hit. Not sure it’s something I’ll watch again anytime soon but decent for a romance-drama. **3.5/5**

Academy Award Nominations for this!?
I had never seen Love Story nor read the book. However, I vividly remember its popularity when I was a child. Now that I’m “all grown up” I cannot believe that 1970 America got mesmerized by such schmaltz.

For Love Story to garner a Best Picture nomination must mean that 1970 was a weak year for films. Others have panned O’Neal and McGraw’s acting. I thought it was adequate… nothing to do backflips over, but adequate…certainly NOT Oscar winning. I’ve always liked Ryan O’Neal’s acting. Someone else should have played Jenny

I can take the romance, the young love, grievous feelings. I’ve been there but what’s most irksome about this film are the gaps in the story line. I had NO IDEA what the hell Jenny was dying from. Out of nowhere Oliver graduates from law school… did we ever see him crack a book. The screenplay is lacking in my opinion. This is certainly not the greatest love story ever told… at least not on film anyway.

Still, it’s enjoyable and worth seeing if nothing else than to see Tommy Lee Jones in an early role and also for the beautiful winter scenery.

Rating: 7/10 or **1/2

The legendary romance film probably loses some ground in the four decades since
Love Story is easily the forefather of all the romantic films after it. I’m sure if I had seen this in 1970 that it would have felt revolutionary, unique and heartbreaking. Having seen it now, the problem is that countless other films have copied it and paid homage to it. The film absolutely relies on the chemistry of its two stars and you absolutely can’t deny that. Both characters are very well written with distinct and vivid personalities that just click so well together. The story behind Love Story is simplistic enough and I was actually surprised at how simple it was. Perhaps it was the years of build up and discussion about the film being a classic that left me a little underwhelmed. But I even found the “major” turning point in the film (I don’t want to blatantly give it away in case someone actually doesn’t know) but I found it completely anti-climatic. I knew what was going to happen going into it but I didn’t find it nearly as heart wrenching as I thought. I’ve heard people say that Love Story is the greatest romance film ever, and always have a Kleenex but I simply wasn’t that moved. Was it good? Yes it was good but I don’t quite see the same level of quality everyone raves about.

Ali MacGraw is beautiful, sassy, full of life and perfect in her role. Nowadays I think her role might be considered stereotypical and predictable. You know, she’s the wild and vivacious woman that tames the playboy. However, for its time I’m sure she was a unique character and she simply nails it. Almost exactly the same could be said for Ryan O’Neal. He equally is terrific in his role as straight laced Harvard jock Oliver Barrett. They are two very different characters which is really the entire point of this passionate romance. Their chemistry is unmistakable but the beauty of the romance is that its real. It doesn’t feel all based on lust or passion but a real romance unfolds between them throughout their life. John Marley and Ray Milland are decent in supporting roles as MacGraw’s and O’Neal’s fathers respectively. They don’t have big parts but they are vital to the story and do well in their roles.

The key to Love Story is the phrase I keep saying, “in its time.” I don’t know if that means that the film didn’t age well but I think it is was far more important for when it was released. It was the end of the sixties, O’Neal and MacGraw were playing young lovers looking to find their way in the world like so many baby boomers. The simplistic and yet vibrant setting of the Harvard campus and Massachusetts is the perfect spot for their budding romance. The film feels incredibly short for the time span that it covers. We are to feel like this is an epic all time romantic love and yet they meet, they banter back and forth, they kiss, they make love, they marry, they work, they go to school…and then the ending. It all happens very quickly. The dialogue between them is terrific and of course the film features that classic line “love means never having to say you’re sorry.” It was great to see the movie, but I just didn’t get the classic vibe that its known for. It is mildly entertaining and fun to watch but I think it lost its effectiveness over the decades. 7/10
