I love "The Way We Were." I love the period ambience, the way Barbra looks in the hairdos and outfits of the forties, the wonderful love story, and the great acting of Streisand ands Redford. A Blu- Ray edition of the film is available now, but only at one web site:

If you're interested, I'd act quickly, because it's a limited edition!

Chanel has announced that images of the iconic American actress will be used in TV and print campaigns for its legendary fragrance starting November 17.
