In the opening scene, set in 1977, Sally's hair is styled after that of Farrah Fawcett from the popular TV series Charlie's Angels (1976). It was the most widely-copied women's hairstyle of the era. See more »
When Sally tells Harry that she's watching Casablanca, she says it's on channel 11. A few moments later, when they're both watching the movie in their respective apartments, both TVs are turned to channel 7. See more »
I was sitting with my friend Arthur Kornblum, in a restaurant, it was a Horn and Hardart cafeteria. And this beautiful girl walked in and I turned to Arthur and I said Arthur, you see that girl? I'm going to marry her. And two weeks later we were married. And it's over fifty years later and we are still married.

Beautiful film, giving hope to all those seemingly unrequited loves.
Can you beat some of the lines in this film? As a guy, which I am, I identified with Harry's lines so much, and you can't help but side with him. The chemistry between the two actors, Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan is superb, and you believe in them when they talk, you feel for them when they look at each other. Even the friends are well casted, Carrie Fisher and Bruno Kirby. It's such relaxed acting and filming that you do nothing but watch these people fall in love, and pretty soon you feel like you're involved as well. With a fantastic soundtrack, direction, script and acting, it's a great film.
