It was Barbra Streisand's first movie, and she got herself an Academy Award right out of the box. Funny Girl was the motion picture adaptation of the Broadway play and is not to be missed. And although not as good as the first movie, the sequel, Funny Lady, has some good songs too.
She was an unconventional choice as Dolly Levi but she made the part her own in the Gene Kelly directed musical, Hello, Dolly!.
One screen legend re-makes another screen legend's most famous movie. Barbra Streisand's version of A Star Is Born - served up Seventies-Style.
We know this is a controversial pick. It's a love it or hate it movie. Watch Yentl and count us in the "Love It" group.
Barbra Streisand directed and starred in this motion picture adaptation of Pat Conroy's novel, The Prince of Tides. The movie was nominated for a Best Picture Oscar and Barbra directed co-stars Nick Nolte and Kate Nelligan to Oscar nominations for their roles. (It's a great Soundtrack too!)
