R.I.P. Erich Segal

The man who created a Sixties sensation with “Love Story” has died in London.

Erich Segal gave us the line, “Love means never having to say you’re sorry.”

So, so untrue.

  1. I’m saddened by his death. But you are so, so right about what was wrong with the sentence for which he will be most remembered.

    I took a course from Erich Segal at Yale…he was a lot more than that line…and will be missed. But I remember in the 70’s Cinestudio @ Trinity used to have midnight horror movies and they promoted a unnamed movie that was so terrifying a nurse would be in attendance at the show. Of course, that movie was Love Story…there were many lines that caused audience to cry out “Nurse!” and collapse to the floor, but when “Love means never having to say you’re sorry” was uttered, they were carrying them out on stretchers!

  3. I remembered reading the book and of course watching the movie and crying like crazy at the end.

    He was a great author, who also had his share of pain. Per his daughter, he fought with Parkinson’s for the last 25 years of his life.

    He left many of us saying “I’m sorry” even though we were in love, and meant it as we said it.

    Rest in Peace Dear Sweet Man.
