In its day it was a lovely film. Redford was at the peak of his beauty and charm. Barbra was probably as good looking as she was ever going to be - she had a great ass.
Redford kept the wife and kids in Utah and played around on the side. Streisand's not his type.

In her review, Pauline Kael noted, "the decisive change in the characters' lives which the story hinges on takes place suddenly and hardly makes sense." She was not the only critic to question the gap in the plot. Of the scene in the hospital shortly after Katie gives birth and they part indefinitely, Molly Haskell wrote, "She seems to know all about it, but it came as a complete shock to me." The sloppy editing was exposed in other ways, as well. In his review, critic John Simon wrote: "Some things, I suppose, never change, like the necktie Redford wears in two scenes that take place many years apart."
Variety called it "a distended, talky, redundant, and moody melodrama" and adds, "but Robert Redford has too little to work with in the script," and "The overemphasis on Streisand makes the film just another one of those Streisand vehicles where no other elements ever get a chance."
Time Out London observed "With the script glossing whole areas of confrontation (from the Communist '30s to the McCarthy witch-hunts), it often passes into the haze of a nostalgic fashion parade. Although Streisand's liberated Jewish lady is implausible, and emphasizes the period setting as just so much dressing, Redford's Fitzgerald-type character...is an intriguing trailer for his later Great Gatsby. It's a performance that brings more weight to the film than it deserves, often hinting at depths that are finally skated over."

Streisand needed an intimacy coordinator.
"Barbra, we all know you're used to fucking your co-stars, but please don't try to grab Bob's dick again! As a professional, you have to respect his boundaries and realize those tight protective briefs are uncomfortable and cutting off circulation to his extremities. Take 5!"

It came out in 1973 for fuck's sake. Vietnam was over or so they said, The Pill was just becoming legal and Nixon would be forced to resign over the Watergate break in/illegal payoffs/campaign finance crimes and illegally using he IRS to target his enemies in 1974. The scandal was already rolling along.
We wanted something schmaltzy and pretty and Robert Redford gave us that. Barbra did too, in her own way. It wasn't a great film but it was a very pleasant, entertaining movie and most people enjoyed it. I enjoyed it.

I always saw it as a one-side relationship. Barbra from the wrong side of the tracks. Redford was his usual cool and standoffish, non-committal, waiting-for-someone-better, guy.
I.e., not really "passionate" except on Barbra's side.

Redford always comes across as a complete drip. Also, not a nice guy. I was listening to a podcast called The Rewatchables—very good featuring industry insides including well-regarded screenwriters as guests—and they were rewatching All the President’s Men. Redford did something rotten—can’t remember what exactly but think it had something to do with fucking over the famous screenwriter William Goldman. The hosts of the show used it as an example of what a dick Redford is—he’s know for pulling rank and for refusing to play a role that makes him look anything less than handsome and desirable.
I’ve never liked him. He’s so wooden. I did like him in The Sting.

Redford was going to play Frank Galvin (the lead) in "The Verdict" and (I think) had already started, but he was insisting that Galvin not be an alcoholic. Those in charge refused to change the character to suit him. Redford quit.
Paul Newman took the role and got an Oscar Nomination for "The Verdict".

He didn't have Newman's bone structure or genetics. Redford's facial skin sort of collapsed. And remember, he was already 33 when he played his breakout role of Sundance, so he didn't have that much leading man time left by Hollywood standards.
As to whether he's a dick or not, I remember when All the President's Men came out, he and Hoffman were interviewed individually for Australian TV. At the end of Redford's interview the reporter said, "Thanks very much. I have to go interview Dustin Hoffman now." Redford laughed and said, "That'll be fun for you." Mind you, everyone and his dog thought that about Dustin Hoffman at the time, he was so demanding to work with, but I guess not everyone said it on air. To be fair he might have thought the reporter had stopped recording.

The scene in the bar where Katie sees Hubble for the first time in a long time and she was so lovestruck. If you've ever had a mad crush on someone, then time goes by, and suddenly you see them again after quite a while you know what I'm talking about. It was beautifully played by both Streisand and Redford.

I think you may have to be of a certain age to really appreciate this movie. I was 13 when this movie came out and most people I think were looking for movies with some romantic escapism at that time. While I’ve never considered BS beautiful or pretty, I think she was at her most attractive in this film. And RR was certainly at the height of his handsomeness. I love the bedroom scene where you get to see his blond hairy chest in all its glory. Overall, I think it was Streisand’s greatest performance after Funny Girl. She certainly should have won the Oscar over Glenda Jackson in 1974 for Touch of Class.

Pollack changed the movie at the last minute with editing by making the reasons for the break up hazey. As written, what happens is that the James Woods character reports Katie to the HUAC as having been a communist while in college. The studio gave Hubble a choice: leave your wife or be fired. He left her.
Supposedly, Pollack felt the audience wouldn't go for Hubble being so cowardly and awful. It's a totally different movie.

Not a fan of either one of them but her skin was WAY WAY WAY nicer than his. I worked with a woman year ago who had been a secretary at some Hollywood studio, and she said his skin was appalling with all the pock marks from apparently a ghastly experience with acne, back before the Accutane days.
Lots of hot actors from the era - Paul Newman, Brando, James Dean, Beatty, hell, even Dustin Hoffman, many many more -- but RR was like those boring jocks in high school where there's no there there behind the 'supposedly' good looks. (yeah I know Brando and Dean predated RR's era but I'm just thinking of other big box office guys that I preferred - which is just about all of them.

Laurents directed Streisand on stage in 1962 (as Miss Marmelstein, the office secretary in "I Can Get it for You Wholesale," her Broadway debut), and praised her "magnetically intense singing," but complained about "her incongruous Anna May Wong fingernails." Later he said, ""I told her, 'When you cut your fingernails, you'll be an actress.' She has never cut them."

When he is asked about his leading ladies, he is always positive. Sticks up for them. Jane Fonda, Natalie Wood, etc.
Though, I do remember when he and Babs were on Oprah. Oprah was doing a show about TWTW. Babs said she thought they should do a sequel. He wasn't for it. Then she got kind of insistent. He tried to be diplomatic but gave an emphatic no.

I already posted (negatively) but want to add something. I remember seeing this movie, so well. I was 15. My mom asked me to go with her. (Mom would have been 45.) I remember being uncomfortable with the sex scene. Times were different! Later my mom said, "That scene wasn't necessary." That scene was tame by today's standards. But there's something about it that still creeps me out.
This was a time when narrative structure seemed to be falling apart, in a lot of films. It was true of this film. There wasn't really a strong plot, or story. And some things were confusing. I wasn't a big fan of Streisand. I've always had an ambivalence towards her. I never thought she was a good dramatic actress. She should have stuck to comedies, musicals and TV specials.

He was right. She never was.
Streisand has genuine acting talent, but, like Cher, she was mostly interested in being a movie STAR rather than a movie actor: once both women won the Oscar, you got a sense they didn't really know where to go with their acting careers because that's what they both most wanted.
"But you could say that about Redford too, that he wanted to be a star more than an actor (though he had seriously trained as an actor). Although once he did become the biggest male star in America, to his credit he used his celebrity to promote other causes like independent films (through Sundance) . And to both of their credits, both Streisand and Redford branched out into directing, at which they were both pretty good (though not great).

Barbra Streisand could've been a Bette Davis type - a character-driven leading actress - but her vanity got in the way.

If Barbra had been willing to ditch the glamour from time to time she could've done some interesting work.

Redford was great in Barefoot In The Park - probably my favorite performance of his - and I loved him in Inside Daisy Clover. Later on he got more and more stolid and had that "less-is-more" minmalist style. I don't know how he didn't bore himself with some of his choices of roles. As he aged, he couldn't rely on his looks, but more than that, he just was hard to look at. He shouldn't have dyed blond hair at 80 or whatever. He maybe could have aged into a great character actor like Spencer Tarcy, Fredric March, Henry Fonda or Jack Lemmon. But, for whatever reason, he didn't.

Redford may have been concerned Babs could be interested in a work fling. I know it would have concerned me if in that position. I'm pretty sure it's an M.O. she was known for back in the day.
As for Redford being sexy, that was a period of time he looked his best. The doubled panties may have been a cover for being poorly equipped. He never struck me as having anything between his legs to write home about. I've looked and looked for any indication he has something fun happening down under. Anyone here have knowledge of how he's hung? Or not?

Redford was at his best in light comic roles. He is perfection in Barefoot. I wonder if Mike Nichols spoon fed him his inflections and timing. God provided the rest. Otherwise in dramatic roles he has all the seriousness and weight of tissue paper. The talent simply isn't there.

Untrue, R128. Are you confusing Redford with someone else? He comes from a middle class family, not poor or rich. Was a self described punk who would rob houses with his buddies, no "street gangs." Redford finished high school school and was then thrown out of college for drinking (as in too drunk to perform). Went to Paris to study art, landed in New York and studied acting.

He didn't grow up upper middle-class or rich. He said he didn't in multiple interviews and majority of articles repeat that he grew up poor in a blue-collar neighborhood. Working class can go to college and travel if they save money or make connections. There's really not much difference between working class and lower middle class besides a little bit more money saved in the bank. Plus he was goodlooking and white and that was a privilege. It's weird to lie about something like this. Many older Hollywood actors didn't come from money but their good looks and ability to create a persona tricked the public.
[Quote] “Bagger Vance,” Redford says, was a chance to get even more into visual storytelling, using single images that would carry a lot of story, like the comic strips he followed when he was a kid, growing up in Santa Monica, the son of a milkman.
[Quote] “That was one of the few entertainments I had,” Redford says. “Well, I had radio. But we were a pretty working, lower-class family where there wasn’t a lot. We were in a Mexican neighborhood. It was fairly grim. There were no class distinctions, because we wereunited by the war effort. These weren’t happy times; nobody had much. The library’s where I got into this mythology. But how the people came together was radio, or the funny papers. Sunday was a huge deal. You’d go racing for the funnies. Without knowing it, I was very connected to them.”

I was hanging out with some friends in New York (where I'm not from) a long time ago and they went to the Paramount offices while I had to go somewhere else to see another friend. When we met up they said they saw Redford in the Paramount building and the thing they talked about most was that he was was not very tall. I think from his movies they thought he was 6' 1" or something. I don't know his official height but they said he looked shorter than my height (5' 10.5").
