Hans Remembers – Wednesday December 16, 1970- 50 Years Ago.
- Gag… what would become the highest-earning film of the year- Love Story was released in the theaters of the United States and Canada. The screenplay written by Erich Segal was adapted into a novel at the request of Paramount Pictures and had become an instant bestseller a few weeks after the films release. The movie- starring Ali MacGraw and Ryan O’Neal would be the big Christmas hit of 1970. I’m surprised this hasn’t been re-made. Or has it?
- Construction on the upper levels continued- as the World Trade Center opened for business as 25 employees of the North Tower’s first two tenants reported for work at their new location. Export-Import Services opened on the 10th floor and another export-import business Irving R. Booty Inc. opened on the 11th floor.
