I never much cared for Ali MacGraw. Always found her acting too impersonal. But I did vote for "Love Story." I look at that as her signature role.

I voted for The Getaway about the only movie in which she ever turned in an even halfway decent performance. I think acting with her husband helped.

I voted for The Kid Stays in the Picture even though it's not really an Ali MacGraw movie.

I have to admit that I'm scratching my head over the Yoga reference. Did she make Yoga videos or something?

He meant Yoda, Ali McGraw was the voice of Yoda in the Star Wars films.

Convoy is my favorite movie with Ali McGraw, but it really has nothing to do with her.

Huh??? Frank Oz was the voice of Yoda. That's why he sounds so much like Grover.

Ali McGraw HAS done a yoga video...that's what the poster was referring to!

ha ha, thanks Shannon.

Now this is interesting to me. I fully expected a lot of votes for LOVE STORY, but only me and one other person voted for GOODBYE COLUMBUS? Verrrrrrrrry interesting.

I completely agree with you Tarnower, she is aloof. Still, I'd like to have one Ali Macgraw film in my collection. Decisions decisions. I thought LOVE STORY was the sappiest thing I'd ever seen. I remember being a teenager and sitting in the theater with my weeping girlfriends.

I wanted to hurl LOL.

I do realize it's her signature piece; but Terms Of Endearment it is not. (ah, speaking of natural beauties, Debra Winger)

Alright. Now, why THE GETAWAY guys? I seem to recall Steve McQueen was less than, er, alert in that movie and Ali carried the whole thing for him. But it's been years since I saw that . . .

THE PEACH-O-METER GIVES
GOODBYE COLUMBUS

Ali MacGraw was never in Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid. Katharine Ross was in Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid.

In a thread voting for Katherine Ross I should hope. Earth to Laser.

I was joking about Yoda.

I was the other person who voted for Goodbye Columbus. I'm very happy to hear that Paramount will be releasing this on DVD in the next few months, it's a great film.
