This box set includes 3 of Streisand's beloved romances: "Prince of Tides," "The Mirror has Two Faces," & "The Way We Were.
"Prince of Tides," co-starring Nick Nolte & including Jason Gould (Streisand & Elliot Gould's real life son) is easily the best of the three selections. Based upon Pat Conroy's novel, Nolte plays a South Carolinian, Tom Wingo, who's family was severely traumatized by violence during his childhood. When his sister, Savannah, tries to commit suicide & fails, her psychiatrist, Dr. Lowenstein (Streisand) summons him to come to New York to help her try to figure out what's going on to make Savannah suicidal. There's a whole lot more to the story & film. See my individual review for more details~
"The Mirror has Two Faces" turned out to be a pleasant surprise, co-starring Jeff Bridges as Professor Gregory Larkin. Streisand directs & plays the lead role as Professor Rose Morgan. Lauren Bacall plays a crucial part as Rose's incorrigible mother. Naturally, the romance in this film is between Streisand & Bridges, as two Columbia University professors who've given up on true love for extremely different reasons. Then, they meet. When they decide to enter into a platonic marriage, suddenly & surprising to herself, Rose heats way the heck up, much to Greg's bewilderment. It's nearly a romantic comedy and quite entertaining~♥~
"The Way We Were" is the eldest of the 3 & the most classic as well. Sydney Pollack directs Streisand & Redford as they enter into a politicized romance. Streisand was nominated for an Oscar for her performance as Katie Morosky, a radical political Jewish college student who falls madly in love with a very conservative & upper-crustry writer, Hubbell Gardner (Redford). Their romance takes place during Hollywood's 1950's "blacklisting era," the communist witch hunt led by Joseph McCarthy & the House UnAmerican Activities Committee. Streisand also sings the title song, which is a classic & unforgettable (often referred to as "Memories"--not to be confused with Andrew Lloyd Webber's "Memory" from Cats)~
This is one of my favorite Barbra Streisand movies, I bought it in a 3 movie set. I am pleased with the condition, the picture is lovely, but I am hearing impaired and rely on the subtitles. This particular movie has subtitles, but only in French and Korean. I was very disappointed, the other 2 movies in the set are perfect and have English subtitles.
I love these films with Barbra Streisand, they are her at her best. She is perfect in the roles she plays, and she is a good director too.The supporting cast is also good,very convincing. They don't make films like this anymore. Thanks for them seller, & ebay.com.
I love Barbra Streisand and these three just happen to be some of my favorite movies. I think it's great to sell them in a box set (they aren't copies) and sell them at a reasonable price. I loved watching the movies when I'm alone at home and can enjoy them by myself. Barbra is a joy to watch!
I purchased this DVD for my mother. I feel it was a good value for three classic Barbara Streisand movies. The set contained three movies on three separate discs all contained in one jacket. I would recommend this to any Streisand fan looking to add to their collection. The only down-side I feel some people wouldn't like is that the three discs stack directly on top of each other in the jacket, as opposed to having separate sections.
