Watch The Way We Were

"Everything seemed so important then .. even love!"

The Way We Were, is a theatrical film that was released in 1973. It stars Robert Redford as Humbblle Gardiner, and Barbara Streisand as Katie Morosky. The film is set on a college campus in the New York City area in the 1930's; the specific college is never named. The film opens with the Redford character portrayed as the all American apple pie sort of student. The standout in sports and academics, captain of everything. The shining star, with the beautiful girlfriend, surrounded by the most popular friends. He basically wants to do extremely well, and not take life too seriously. The Streisand character is portrayed as an extremely studious, hard working student, extremely politically active in student political forums. It is intimated that she comes from very limited means and has to work extremely hard to be able go to college. Gardiner is the wasp, or the blue eyed blond, gentile, to Morosky's curly haired 'nice Jewish girl'.

The classic, opposites attract? Perhaps at first, against all odds and to the amazement of each of their friends, the two become a couple and eventually graduate from the east coast university from where they met, get married, and relocate to California. There Gardiner pursues a career as a writer. Morosky continues an extremely active political life, becoming extremely involved with 'Hollywood Types' involved in various political groups, concerned with protecting free speech and other such extreme political groups of that time period. Gardiner, grows increasingly impatient with his wife's political endeavors, and has much more of a 'live and let live' attitude. He basically has a much more apathetic outlook on life than that of his more outspoken wife. Their stark differences, eventually tear the once passionate couple apart. Standout performances by a young James Woods, as Morosky's college classmate and friend. The film's main song, is the academy award winning, 'The Way We Were', sung by Streisand in the beginning and end of the film.
