love interest:

The element of love-in a novel, movie, or play.

QUOTE: Carl Denham (Robert Armstrong), a movie producer in King Kong (1933): ' Because the public must have a pretty face to look at.(...) I go out and sweat blood to make a swell picture and then the critics and the exhibitors all say: 'If this picture had love interest, it would gross twice as much' .'
