In the film, Miss Bergen is only a slight departure from Ali MacGraw, who never seemed all that economically deprived in the first place, so the point is lost.
A scene of Mr. Segal's, in which Marcie met Oliver's parents and — unlike Jenny — was a big hit, has been dropped from the movie, as has every other useful parallel with "Love Story. O'Neal's nighttable, right next to the Excedrin.
This is not to suggest that Mr. Korty has moved on in any imaginative way, or that he is above falling back on "Love Story" every time new inspiration eludes him. After Oliver has a fight with Marcie, for instance, Mr.
Korty has him drive all the way to Cambridge, just so he can trot briefly and wordlessly past the other film's Harvard Yard settings. Jenny's father is still around this time played by Edward Binns instead of John Marley , but he has conveniently forgotten all about his daughter and keeps urging Oliver to go out and have a good time.
The Barrett parental estate serves a similarly perfunctory purpose. These evocations are so cold and clumsy that they effectively dispel all vestiges of the first film's highly marketable mood. Korty has the reputation of a fine independent film maker; his documentary about the DeBolt family, to be shown on television this weekend, won an Academy Award last year.
But his direction of "Oliver's Story" is too unsure one moment, too insistent the next, and he has no eye for the glamour that might have been this film's last chance. O'Neal is certainly equal to the material, but Mr. Korty doesn't seem to trust him with it; too many montages seem devised to keep the actor from having to talk. Miss Bergen always looks spectacular in close-ups, so why, then, are there so many unflattering long shots of her in unbecoming costumes?
And what use has been made of the highly exploitable memory of Jenny? The first sequence shows Mr.
O'Neal watching her coffin being lowered into the ground, inch by tearjerking inch. But after that, for all his funk, he doesn't often think of her again.
Perhaps it's just as well.
This is the kind of sequel that could have her turning over in her grave. Pappe; set decorator, Phil Smith; produced by David V. Picker; released by Paramount Pictures. Running time: 90 minutes.
