The Way We Were

118' - 1973 - Drama, Romance - Dialogue: French, English
Director: Sydney Pollack Composer: Marvin Hamlisch With: Barbra Streisand, Robert Redford, Bradford Dillman, Lois Chiles, Patrick O'Neal, Viveca Lindfors, Allyn Ann McLerie, Murray Hamilton, Herb Edelman
This is a first-class love story of two individuals whose political ideologies are exact opposites. It is the story of political activist Katie Morosky and her complete opposite, the Waspish Joe College-type Hubbell Gardiner. The film tells the account of their relationship from late 30's when they fall in love while in college, to early 50's when they're married and Katie's political past is damaging Hubbell's career as scriptwriter in the McCarthy-era in Hollywood. Streisand won an Academy Award Nomination for her performance as a radical student in love with a conversative young man and Marvin Hamlisch's score and title song won Oscars. Pre-release cuttings excised the meatiest sequence on the blacklisting era in Hollywood.
