Ryan O'Neal and Tatum O'Neal

Ryan O'Neal, who earned a best actor Oscar nomination for 1970's "Love Story," teamed with young daughter Tatum for Peter Bogdanovich's charming 1973 comedy "Paper Moon," (pictured) about a con man during the Depression and a streetwise 9-year-old girl, who may or may not be his daughter. Tatum was an overnight sensation and, at age 10, became the youngest person to win a competitive acting Oscar.<br><br>

Their next collaboration with Bogdanvoich, 1976's "Nickelodeon," wasn't as successful. Then, after a 25-year estrangement, the two teamed again for the 2011 OWN reality series, "Ryan & Tatum: The O'Neals," which chronicled their attempts to reconcile.<br><br>
