CHICAGO – It’s hard to believe that a movie that has come to personify cheesy melodrama like “Love Story” was nominated for SEVEN OSCARS, including Best Picture, Actor, Actress, Director, and Screenplay (losing the biggies to a film exactly on the other end of the dramatic spectrum, “Patton”). “Love Story” is a sweet, competent drama, but, wow, it’s easy to forget how much it took over when it was released, making over $100 million on a budget under $3 million. This movie was MASSIVE and it would make a great last-minute Valentine’s Day treat.
CHICAGO – Actress Farrah Fawcett, who rose to fame by starring in 29 episodes of TV’s “Charlie’s Angels” from 1976 to 1980, has died of anal cancer in the ICU at St. John’s Hospital in Santa Monica, Calif., according to her representative.
