That seems to be the case here. Actors Ryan O'Neal and Ali MacGraw reunited on Monday, visiting Harvard University's campus more than 45 years after their film Love Story hit theaters.
And it looks like history may be repeating itself for the onscreen lovers. MacGraw, 76, and O'Neal, 74, are starring alongside each other in a travelling play titled Love Letters, described as an "enduring romance about first loves and second chances."

In the play, the duo portray two friends who "can't let go of each other" and communicate through notes, cards, and letters, despite their marriages to separate people.
"It feels so great to be reunited," MacGraw told PEOPLE in July. "Our chemistry has not changed. We sill feel the same about each other."
The national tour is currently in Boston, where it will stay for one week – just a stone's throw away from the campus that brought them together.
According to the Associated Press, MacGraw and O'Neal arrived at the university in a vintage MG convertible, reminiscent of the car used in Love Story, before participating in a discussion about their careers moderated by journalist Alicia Anstead.
