The Way We Were: Costumes & Featurettes

Behind the Scenes—The Costumes

Dorothy Jeakins designed some of he costumes for The Way We Were, then left the production before the film completed. A few designers were suggested to replace her, including Edith Head and Adolfo, but Streisand chose Moss Mabry. Mabry told writer James Spada, "She's got wonderful buns. And one of the most beautiful busts in Hollywood. And beautiful skin."
