The way we were and oh how beautiful
15 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember Susan Hayward as my father's very favorite actress. He never said anything specific about why but when her movie was on the TV, he wouldn't budge. I feel the same way. This movie is a favorite of mine even though it breaks my heart because it shows off her beauty, her talent and does it without relying on spectacle. It relies on her eyes and her smile and her tears. The story is sad but the true loveliness of the performance is that even in her harder and unkinder moments, one sees the personality, the emotional wealth beneath and it touches the heart. I do so love this movie that I was very happy to see others share the emotional connection. Dana Andrews ain't bad either. In fact, the whole cast is great but Ms. Hayward, now there was a star. She and Barbara Stanwyck had what women today don't see on the screen. Style, substance and dimension. Wow.
