Product Description

Screen legends Barbra Streisand and Robert Redford make movie magic as the captivating star-crossed lovers, Hubbell Gardiner and Katie Morosky. 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. Winner of two 1974 Academy Awards(r) (Best Song "The Way We Were" and Best Score), this special 25th Anniversary Edition of the The Way We Were has been digitally remastered so you can enjoy this romantic epic the way it was meant to be seen and heard.

Additional Features

The Way We Were: A Look Back is a terrific retrospective documentary, running just over an hour. Although Robert Redford's absence (due to scheduling conflicts) is conspicuous, fans of The Way We Were will celebrate the rare appearance of Barbra Streisand in a lengthy interview. The notoriously reticent star appears relaxed, cordial, and eager to share stories about the film she considers "a highlight of my career," and her comments about the film are eloquent, heartfelt, and astute. Most important among her observations is her disappointment in the loss of crucial scenes that would have better explained the final separation of her character and Redford's, not due to infidelity but due to the harsh political climate of the blacklist era in Hollywood that made their relationship so volatile. Director Sydney Pollack explains why the cuts were made after the film was publicly previewed, and both his viewpoint and Streisand's are equally justified. The edited scenes are included here, and the documentary also features wonderful interviews and anecdotes from screenwriter Arthur Laurents, songwriters Alan and Marilyn Bergman, and composer Marvin Hamlisch. --Jeff Shannon
