Barbra Streisand holds her end up in this final scene from The Way We Were, but it’s Robert Redford who delivers the emotion. It’s all in his eyes…the heartache, the buried regret, the faint unhappiness about his current gig as a live TV writer, the lingering love. It’s one of his most poignant acting moments ever, and I’m not even a huge fan of this 1973 film.

“You never give up, do you?”
