Erich Segal, R. I. P.

Erich Segal - Telegraph: "Erich Segal, who died on January 17 aged 72, was an esteemed Classics professor who produced the critically-panned but popularly-adored novel Love Story, which was turned into a film starring Ali MacGraw and Ryan O’Neal; he also wrote the screenplay for the Beatles’ animated feature Yellow Submarine."

    I think Love Story was the first 14-and-over movie I ever saw. The book was incredibly popular--a very easy read. And so sad.
