24 reasons to love Streisand - A birthday countdown

24 → her birthday & lucky number

#12. The Way We Were

My all-time favorite film.
Streisand, Redford, amazing performances, politics, feminism, great dialogs, heart breaking love story, gorgeous score… What’s not to love?

"She’s fantastic. She’s the brightest, quickest female in movies today, inhabiting her characters with a fierce energy and yet able to be touchingly vulnerable…"

- Roger Ebert on Barbra’s performance.

“By any standards, Miss Streisand is extraordinary. The camera is never indifferent to her, in a good photographer’s hands. Her face alone or her personality alone, could fascinate. Together, they also captivate, in a positive sense. My compliment to the lady is that the more she is photographed, the more she ought to be photographed…”
- Cecil Beaton {x}

"She's a myth, the great American dream, the girl come through, the toast of Broadway, the fable, the moral, and the fairy tale." - Vogue, 1966.
