Barbra Streisand's motion picture career has been among the most acclaimed and tradition-shattering of our time. A two-time Oscar winner and the recipient of a record number of Golden Globes (won in five different categories), Streisand has helped to usher in a new era for women in film through the successful application of her acting, directing, producing and composing talents. Small wonder then that the American Film Institute chose to honor her with this year's Lifetime Achievement Award.
Now Hollywood historians Christopher Nickens and Karen Swenson have written the first account of Streisand's legendary career that includes all of her movie work. With keen insight, the authors offer thoughtful analysis of the superstar's unique filmography. Written in an entertaining style, THE FILMS OF BARBRA STREISAND includes fascinating, detailed backstories on the production of her Oscar-winning debut in FUNNY GIRL; her classic comedies, THE OWL AND THE PUSSYCAT and WHAT'S UP, DOC?; her deeply-felt dramatic love stories, THE WAY WE WERE and THE PRINCE OF TIDES; her beloved musicals, HELLO, DOLLY!, ON A CLEAR DAY YOU CAN SEE FOREVER, FUNNY LADY, A STAR IS BORN; and her stunning debut as a director in YENTL.
Streisand's few failures (such as UP THE SANDBOX and ALL NIGHT LONG) are discussed thoroughly as well, and Nickens and Swenson tackle head-on the star's highly publicized drive for perfection. This is a balanced portrait of a filmmaker whose obsessive attention to detail has resulted in both great success and enduring controversy.
A must-have for even casual admirers of this great star and a treasure trove of information for avid movie historians, THE FILMS OF BARBRA STREISAND even manages to reveal a number of surprises for Streisand's most ardent fans.From the Author:
