The Way We Were

Saw this as a Westwood CA sneak preview, back in the days when the titles of the "sneaks" were kept secret to get a non pre-sold audience reaction.
Best sneak preview I ever saw: the audience was thrilled as soon as Streisand's and Redford's names came up on the screen and stayed that way.
It really is arguably the best romantic tearjerker made after Hollywood's Golden Age period.

(Always startling to see the then unknown young James Woods as Katie's (Streisand's) callow activist friend with the huge unrequited crush on her. For anyone who didn't notice, that's Woods looking miffed in the trailer when Redford cuts in on his slow dance with Streisand at the prom...)
