This chapter focuses on Barbra Streisand’s movies, beginning with Funny Girl in 1968 followed by Hello, Dolly! a year later. A roadshow release, Funny Girl dropped eight of the numbers, including the best title, “The Music That Makes Me Dance,” but added three songs associated with Fanny Brice, the most notable of which is her “autobiography” piece, “My Man.” Hello, Dolly! is considered one of Streisand’s best portrayals. The chapter also offers a commentary on Streisand’s third film, On a Clear Day You Can See Forever (1970), along with other projects such as The Owl and the Pussycat (1970), What’s Up, Doc? (1972), Up the Sandbox (1972), The Way We Were (1973), For Pete’s Sake (1974), A Star Is Born (1976), The Main Event (1979), Yentl (1983), The Prince Of Tides (1991), The Mirror Has Two Faces (1996), and The Guilt Trip (2012).
