Naturally, Love Story makes the cut of the top '70s romantic films. This classic 1970s film contains the iconic line, “Love means never having to say you're sorry.” The Great Gatsby is often considered the great American novel and its 1974 film adaptation, starring Mia Farrow and Robert Redford, centers around the book's love story. Harold & Maude, meanwhile, is a '70s romantic movie that proves that age ain't nothing but a number.
