Product Description

Amazon.ca

Ah, Barbra. Of all her onscreen personas, she sparkles in none as she does in her role as 1930s comedian Fanny Brice in the musical Funny Girl. Portraying the life of this star of stage and radio, Brice preens and prances and sings, captivating her audience both onscreen and off. Fanny Brice started life on the Lower East Side of New York, the daughter of a Jewish saloon owner. Not the prettiest girl around, Brice still managed to quickly rise to stardom as a performer in the Ziegfield Follies. A shrewd, obstinate woman, Brice dictated her own success story on stage; things were a different matter in romance. Falling hard for the stunning Nick Arnstein (suavely played by Omar Sharif), Brice must navigate a difficult marriage. While kids may love the tunes (which include the now-infamous "People," as in "People who need people are the luckiest people in the world"), the plot is definitely adult-oriented. Enjoy this one, but don't go too far out of your way for the sequel, Funny Lady. --Jenny Brown

5.0 out of 5 stars "He's got polish on his nails." April 5 2004
Format:DVD
The ultimate showcase for an actress, Barbra Streisand's highly publicized film debut in FUNNY GIRL met every single expectation and then some. The film was the highest-grossing film of 1968, and it's very easy to see why. The film has many great qualities: It's expertly directed by three-time Academy Award winner William Wyler (the finale of the "Don't Rain On My Parade" number is just as astonishing as the chariot race in Wyler's BEN HUR), the storyline is extremely compelling, Omar Sharif is an incredibly suave and charismatic leading man, the supporting players are perfectly cast (particularly Kay Medford, Lee Allen, and Walter Pidgeon), and the song score (primarily by Jule Styne and Bob Merrill) is first-rate.
However, virtually everything that FUNNY GIRL has working for it would be worthless without Barbra Streisand's absolutely phenomenal performance. I honestly cannot think of enough good descriptive adjectives to do justice to her amazing performance in this film. She handles drama, comedy, music numbers, and tearjerking sentiment with equal aplomb, and she does it all better than any actress before or since. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences had no choice but to honor her with the Oscar for Best Actress (in an extremely rare tie with academy favorite Katherine Hepburn; only the second tie in Oscar history to date), it is a performance that is nothing less than perfect.
About the DVD: Columbia-Tristar has done an excellent job in bringing FUNNY GIRL to DVD. The restoration of the original source elements may have taken nearly three years to complete, but it was time well spent - the picture quality is gorgeous! Sure, there are a few nicks on the print, but the color, sharpness, and virtually everything else is nearly flawless.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Own! July 22 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
If you are a Streisand fan, or a musical fan, I can't imagine you don't already own this. If you don't, then GET IT! The picture quality is excellent. The colours "pop" off the screen and songs, like the Bridal number, really sparkle. The sound is also a big improvement from the DVD. The overture sounds great, but then, when the actual movie starts, the opening credits music hits you with a "pow". Of course, it is not the quality of sound you get today. It was made 46 years ago after all, but no complaints here. A few more extras would have been nice, but when all is said and done it is the movie that you are paying for and this is well worth the price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Story of Fanny Brice and old time vaudvellian. May 20 2014
By E. F. Muir TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Barbara shines in this one of her first roles. And of course, Omar Sherriff is excellent. The older generation will remember Ziegfeld Follies.
