The character of Judy Martin and her development of an outdoor theatre for a performance of "The Tempest" is based on the activities of Rowena Cade (1893 - 1983) and the Minack Theatre in Cornwall. Cade developed the MInack Theatre and produced the first performance of "The Tempest" there in 1932. The actual Minack Theatre was used as a location for the film. See more »

Masterpiece of poetry; may be Phillis Calvert was in the cast?

The first time I saw "Love Story" it was in London fifty years ago, and till now, when I take this movie into consideration, I unceasingly hear - together with the accurate, majestic and melancholic theme of Hubert Bath "Cornish Rhapsodie" - the sea-mews flying and crying on the cliff! In my opinion, "Love Story" is a masterpiece of poetry: a simple film that was able to speak to the heart of a generation of people concerned in the most terrific war, and who understood the charm of hope and of life.
