Listen to Dallas Morning News theater critic Nancy Churnin's conversation with actors Ryan O'Neal and Ali MacGraw. From 1970's Love Story to 2016's Love Letters, feelings still linger between the friends and actors. O'Neal laughs, listens, teases and flirts with MacGraw throughout the conversation, talking about her beauty, love at first sight and the intensity of their chemistry, which neither knows quite how to explain.
