NEW YORK (AP) — Robert Redford will receive Lincoln Center's 42nd annual Chaplin Award from his "The Way We Were" co-star, Barbra Streisand.

The Film Society of Lincoln Center announced Wednesday that Redford will receive the award at an April 27 gala. Joining Streisand as presenters are Jane Fonda, John Turturro and "All Is Lost" director J.C. Chandor.

Redford also will be celebrated with a seven-film tribute. The Film Society will screen his "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid," ''The Candidate," ''Jeremiah Johnson," ''Ordinary People" ''Quiz Show," ''Three Days of the Condor" and "The Way We Were" over April 24-27.

The award is named after Charlie Chaplin. Previous recipients include Alfred Hitchcock, James Stewart and Meryl Streep. Last year, it was given to Rob Reiner.

Upcoming films for the 78-year-old Redford include the Bill Bryson memoir adaption "A Walk in the Woods" and the Dan Rather docudrama "Truth."
