His films have more nominations than any director in the history of film. Streisand repeats her Tony winning performance with a few extras written for the movie. This version is cleaned up from the 1968 release where she tied with Hepburn for Best Actress. Expand

Barbra Streisand's film debut won her a well deserved Oscar. The musical score is outstanding, fine cinematography. Good costumes. The period detail however is lacking. Good supporting performances.

I thought the direction was excellent except in a few brief scenes where Ms Streisand runs amok. However, Ms. Streisand's singing is brilliant and extraordinary, which more than makes up for those few minor lapses. I also thought the cinematography is spectacular, as is the art direction and production design. The costumes (including those in the musical stage numbers) are beautiful, but from a modern humane perspective, there is way too much use of fur and feathers--they must have skinned a whole generation of minks, and wiped out several species of exotic birds. I suppose that might be a historically accurate or glamorized detail, but in my view it detracts from an otherwise superior entertainment, so I deducted one point and give this film a "9" instead of a "10" which it would otherwise deserve. I agree with others who say the film's second half bogs down in melodrama a tad too much, however, that sets up nicely for the stunning musical climax. Expand

director William Wyler who introduced Audrey Hepburn to the world in Roman Holiday, introduces Barbra Streisand to the world in this hilarious and charming role of Ziegfeld actress Fanny Brice.

Shockingly better than all Ziegfeld
director William Wyler who introduced Audrey Hepburn to the world in Roman Holiday, introduces Barbra Streisand to the world in this hilarious and charming role of Ziegfeld actress Fanny Brice.

Shockingly better than all Ziegfeld adaptions, it is however Streisand's dynamic singing talent and movements that make this a jazzy sexy musical specially done for the ages

Muy buena, para que me guste un musical, los personajes muy bien desarrollados, los papeles de los hombres y los papeles de las mujeres bien ubicados. Talvez lo malo, lo fácil que ella se hizo famosa, el hecho de que la hija nunca apareceMuy buena, para que me guste un musical, los personajes muy bien desarrollados, los papeles de los hombres y los papeles de las mujeres bien ubicados. Talvez lo malo, lo fácil que ella se hizo famosa, el hecho de que la hija nunca aparece (aumentaba el drama). Expand
