Thank you, TCM. It’s been years since I watched Funny Girl start to finish. The last time was on the big screen for a showing at the Ziegfeld Theatre in 2001. I recall because it was right after 9/11 and it was a welcome diversion in New York that fall.
Barbra Streisand simply shines. The velvety voice. The comedic timing. The show stoppers:
Don’t tell me not to fly, I’ve simply got to
If someone takes a spill it’s me and not you
Who told you you’re allowed to rain on my parade?
Goose bumps galore.
