Misty watercolor memories

I don't know how I missed it (oh wait, I do, I don't get to stay home during the day) BUT yesterday on Oprah, Barbra Streisand was reunited with Robert Redford for their first interview together EVER. *sharp, panicked breaths* My mother called me with this news last night and I almost died that I had missed it. Yeah yeah, it's all online now, but I am (and always have been) a die-hard Robert Redford freak, so whenever I get an opportunity to gawk at him on my 42'' plasma, I take it. Oh and Babs? Die for her. She's such a legendary diva.

Anyway luckily some kind-hearted Twitterer (is that even the right word?) tipped me off on the fact that Oprah replays at 1am every day so you better believe I DVRed it....and on my DVR is where it shall stay. Forever.

If you missed it, you can visit Oprah's site here and watch Bab's get all happy and flustered when she realizes Robert's there to surprise her, and they also talk about making The Way We Were (which is only one of the most amazing movies ever created and therefore elicits a trailer plug):

Chills. Every time. They just don't make romantic dramas like it anymore. Not to this caliber. Now it's all this Nicholas Sparks nonsense with milquetoast "actresses" like Miley Cyrus and Mandy Moore playing lead, and boy actors like Channing Tatum or whatever his name is trying to play a real man. Streisand and Robert -- they were it:


  1. Agreed. I get chills every time I even see this movie listed OnDemand.

  2. Sigh......
    I loved their love story. Thanks for the link to the interview. I sent it to my mother and a good friend.
    Babs will always be a superb woman!

  3. Robert Redford is one of my all-time favourite actors, this films is just simply gorgeous and Barbara is just stunning! You're right they just don't make films like this anymore!

  4. Don't hate me but I've never seen this film! I will definitely rent it though! I've actually been adding "classic films" to my to-do lists lately. I just watched "Annie Hall" finally for the first time ever this week! I really, really loved it too. I'm a big fan of Diane Keaton though. Anyway, my mom told me about this Oprah show too and I guess I should definitely watch the film now along with the talk show taping. I'm glad you recorded it.... maybe I can come over and watch it someday. I'm hoping to maybe plan a trip to CA with the earnings I will get from selling my cookbook. I have a few friends there that I want to see. :-)
