Product Description

Streisand/Sharif/Medford/Franc ~ Funny Girl


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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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.

What a tour de force!!! Barbra's first movie is AMAZING!!!
I think Babs was born to play Fanny Brice. What a wonderful and
beautiful portrayal of a young woman struggling to try to "fit"
onstage and then "makes it big" Of course Barbra's singing is
just too perfect and her acting is amazing. I think it is her
best movie. Her comedic timing in this movie is so natural that
she should have done standup. Her comedy movies of the 70's
definately showcase her comedic gifts. One sad note, of course,
is Barbra's character "Fanny" just loves Nicky Awnstein too much.
He knows he isn't good for her and lets her go. He really broke
her heart. So, if you want a movie with vintage style from the 20's, Fabulous Singing, Dancing, Wonderful Costumes, and a great
story, then please watch this movie. It is #1 on my list.

Barbra Streisand is a young Fanny Brice - inexperienced, desperate to make good on her contract with Florenz Ziegfeld and desperately in love with the first of her two husbands, Nick Arnstein (Omar Shariff). After playing the role on Broadway and making it her own, Bab's took home the Best Actress Oscar of the year for her eclectic, electric and thoroughly engaging performance. Co-stars Walter Pidgeon. Director, William Wyler - best known for his efforts in "Ben-Hur" or "Mrs. Miniver" has oft' been criticized for his heavy-handed direction on this film. True - the pace of the musical doesn't rival say, "The Sound of Music" or "West Side Story" but the material is so good, and Wyler brings his own inimitable staging to the show, that I can't really fault the old master for a slightly stoic presentation which, if anything, does not detract from the overall enjoyment of this classic movie musical.
Columbia Tristar has done an outstanding job in remastering this movie for DVD. Colors are rich, vibrant and bold. Shadow delineation is incredible and contrast levels are as they should be. Edge enhancement is practically non-existant while shimmering and aliasing simply don't appear on this disc at any time. This is a fantastic example of just how good an older movie can look on DVD if the proper amount of time and effort is taken to do the job properly. The soundtrack is remastered in 5.1 and positively explodes across all the channels, particularly during the musical sequences. Just listening to Bab's do "Don't Rain On My Parade" or "My Man" will give one goose bumps. Bar none, an incredibly solid remastering effort of a vintage soundtrack. No extras but with quality like this it's hard to squawk. A very fine effort and a definite must have!
