The politics are relegated to the background, and what is left is a commercially astute weepie. Full Review

The movie has the look of a big Hollywood romantic film but because director Pollack looks corruption in the face and exposes it for what it feels like, The Way We Were emerges as one of the least sentimental love stories ever filmed. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- Streisand is capable in an implausible role as a liberated Jewess, and Redford is...well, Redford. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- Redford, as a character seemingly hewn from the pages of F Scott Fitzgerald (he's a writer to boot), is perfectly cast and Streisand is simply Streisand. Full Review

For a screen romance with huge movie stars, that sentiment feels pretty real. Full Review

Description by

Screen legends Barbra Streisand and Robert Redford make movie magic as the captivating star-crossed lovers Katie Morosky and Hubbell Gardiner. Theirs is a classic love story sparked by the attraction of opposites, played out against the backdrop of American life during times of foreign war, domestic prosperity and McCarthy-era paranoia in Hollywood.

This Special Edition has been digitally remastered and includes a "making-of" documentary, with new interviews spotlighting Barbra Streisand, director Sydney Pollack, screenwriter Arthur Laurents, composer Marvin Hamlisch and more. Winner of two 1973 Academy Awards (Best Song "The Way We Were" and Best Score). The Way We Were is the timeless romance that cannot be forgotten.

Product Description:

Sydney Pollack directs Robert Redford and Barbra Streisand in this sensitive and moving tale of the romance of two individuals whose political ideologies are exact opposites. Streisand won an Academy Award nomination for her performance as Katie Morosky, a Jewish student radical who falls in love with Hubbell Gardner (Redford), a conservative privileged writer. The two interact from the beginning of their college courtship through the Hollywood-blacklisting era of the 1950s.


Production Notes:

  • "Everything that happens in the world does not happen to you personally."--Hubell Gardner (Robert Redford) to Katie Morosky (Barbra Streisand)
  • "Your friends make me feel like I'm invited for drinks and everyone else is staying for supper."--Katie to Hubell
