THE WAY WE WERE (1973)
Yes. Truth be told. There are tons of Mr. Redford work to choose from, but… THE WAY WE WERE (1973) is a solid vote for me.
Boy oh boy, what a gem of cinematic-art! They certainly don’t make ‘ em like they used to. Differently, today for sure. This film also offers an opportunity for us to analyze it’s many elements & devices to learn more about this movie’s art.
Being a New Yorker…”Barefoot in the Park” still cracks me up – amazing book and performance – Love it! again and again and again.
Hand’s down, ‘The Way We Were.’ Adding to that, all films he’s ever directed.

Brando, Redford, J. Fonda, A. Dickinson, J Rule, R. Duvall, E.G. Marshall, Miriam Hopkins. An absolute must for REEL 13, if it is ever to be a sincere movie program.
The Day if the Condor, The Sting, and The Company You Keep are my favorite Robert Redford movies.
As Jane Fonda’s uptight lawyer husband Redford goes beet red when the belly dancer’s see through custom grazes his face. His also a convincing drunk with a nasty cold as he goes “Barefoot in the Park.”
Out of Africa.
The Way We Were and Barefoot in the Park.
In Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Redford gives his most self-assured and hilarious performance by far. Stellar in every way. Runner-up: All the President’s Men.
