Some movie posters for the film featured a preamble that read: "She never knew he had an affair. He never knew he had a son. It could have meant the end of their marriage. Instead, it was the beginning of a love story". The last words of this marketing blurb were Love Story (1970) which was also the name of the earlier box-office hit movie written by the same source novelist Erich Segal. Also mentioned as a tagline under the title on the same movie poster was: "Based on the novel by Erich Segal, author of 'Love Story'". See more »
In the car, Jessica referred to her father's friend, Bernie, as Bernie Edwards. In the credits at the end of the movie, he's listed as Bernie Ackerman. See more »
A deep, moving picture of a modern tragedy of an affair and effects on family.
This movie was a quiet picture of the great American tragedy where the affair of the man is played out in the lives of his family. Martin Sheen's family is torn when his son, from a visit to France is brought into the house. The family naturally turns against the father as he struggles to bring his 'son' into the house. The boy, who speaks only the basic English, faces both language and family difficulties. The daughters have the biggest, initially committing to running their new 'brother' off. It is a decidedly touching scene where the existing family turns off their defensiveness and embraces the love of the newly acquired son/brother.
