BAREFOOT IN THE PARK
The movie that fans remember most. 1967's Barefoot in the Park cast Jane Fonda and Robert Redford as red-hot newlyweds whose relationship hits a few speed bumps in their five-flight New York City walk-up apartment. Based on the Neil Simon play, the film gave audiences a taste for Fonda and Redford's electric chemistry.

Barefoot in the Park may be the film championed as the pinnacle of the Fonda/Redford on-screen romance, but it actually wasn't the first time the two had played opposite one another. Their made their debut on-screen together in 1960's Tall Story.
A year earlier they starred together in The Chase (seen here with costar Robert Duvall). Unlike Barefoot in the Park, Fonda and Redford played estranged lovers here, her character sparking a relationship with someone else while his sat in jail.

AFTER PARTY SMOOCH
“Once of the things I really like about Jane that’s manifested in this film is that she really is a force,” Redford, 81, said on Today Sept. 27. “As long as I’ve known Jane she’s always moving forward, and doesn’t look back. And whatever pain, whatever problems she’s had in the past, remains in the past and she keeps moving forward. It’s an admirable quality and very few people have it like Jane does.”
That same night, Fonda gave Redford a kiss on the cheek as the two hung at The Oak Room where Our Souls at Night was having its New York City premiere.
