The often unlikely joint lives of Katie Morosky and Hubbell Gardiner from the late 1930s to the late 1950s is presented, over which time, they are, in no particular order, strangers, acquaintances, friends, best friends, lovers and adversaries. The unlikely nature of their relationship is due to their fundamental differences, where she is Jewish and passionate about her political activism both in political freedoms and Marxism to an extreme where she takes life a little too seriously, while he is the golden boy WASP, being afforded the privileges in life because of his background but who on the most part is able to capitalize on those privileges. Their lives are shown in four general time periods, in chronological order when they attend the same college, their time in New York City during WWII, his life as a Hollywood screenwriter post-war, and his life as a writer for a New York based live television show. It is during college that Hubbell finds his voice in life as a writer, and ... Written by
The college scenes were shot at Union College in Schenectady, New York. The large rotunda-like building is the Nott Memorial at Union College. The restaurant scene where Robert Redford and Barbra Streisand meet outside was filmed at the old Medberry Hotel in Ballston Spa, New York. See more »
At the very end of the movie when the camera is behind Katie as she reaches up to touch the front of Hubbell's hair, he grasps her wrist with his right hand. When the shot immediately switches to behind Hubbell, his hand is not on her wrist. See more »
The Way We Were is undoubtedly the most romantic film of the 1970s Romantic, an intelligent script, beautifully written, wonderfully acted (what a cast!)/ and directed. and that score!! maybe its being taken for granted.. the score(points) here should be higher... its a wonderful film! The chemistry between Streisand & Redford is pure cinema magic.. Its a pity they did not act together again in a sequel or other property. Makes you laugh, cry, has a political message of great importance, yet its always warm, moving and interesting... not a dry eye in the house in 1973... & am always moved by subsequent video showings.. Streisand should have won her second Oscar.. people still talk about The Way We Were & her & Redfords performances... who won best actress in 1973.. ?few will remember.. only Oscar buffs (like me) Glenda Jackson!!! for A Touch of Class (Women in Love yes, "Class " no) ... this was the beginning of the anti Streisand sentiment in Hollywood... she & this film will live on.... Thanks to TCM for a wonderful letterbox screening today (7/14/02).... "memories "should always be as beautiful as this.....
