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."

“The Way We Were” Featurettes
There were a couple of film shorts —also called featurettes—created for The Way We Were. One called Fashions from the Film The Way We Were focused on the costumes and Streisand and Redford's costume tests; another, titled Recreating a Memory, had behind-the-scenes footage of Pollack directing Streisand and Redford on location and on set.
