Notwithstanding her often tempestuous behavior, we here at Macintosh & Maud consider Barbra Streisand as one of the greats. She’s already made an appearance as Dolly Levi, shining through her co-star’s complete lack of interest or care. But it’s this role that started her stardom, before she’d ever been in a film. Barbra is Fanny, Fanny is Barbra, and none of what we see in these movies is the actual Fanny Brice. Which is fine for our first movie on the docket - sure it’s slow, and a little pointless, but those songs and that drama, wow! But when it comes to the film we’re more focused on for this series, we’re once again left asking “why bother and who cared?” It was the best of Barbra, it was the worst of Barbra, as we continue our Oscars ‘75 series with 1968’s Funny Girl and 1975’s Funny Lady
