RYAN O’NEAL: THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES

It was back in the 70’s when we were partying at the small and exclusive club in Beverly hills called The Candy Store. A recent arrival in LA from Chicago, we loved nightclubbing because we always ran into movie stars. On this night we were mesmerized by the sight of What’s Up Doc? costars Ryan O’Neal and Barbra Streisand, apparently out on a date. They danced very close and when they sat down, Barbra was openly affectionate and possessive and coy- she seemed to be crazy about him. He was attractive – looked like a college frat boy. Barbra’s romantic notions didn’t pan out (they never became a couple) and that was probably for the best. Ryan went on to have 4 kids and three out of four were drug addicts – Ryan took the blame. But he made some sweet, funny movies and we appreciate him for that…
