Trivia

The audience segments were filmed in a small TV studio in New York City just down the street from where Barbra Streisand was performing in "Funny Girl". The audience consisted of about 200 members of Streisand's fan club. See more »

Goofs

At least 3 times during the "POVERTY MEDLEY" in ACT TWO, the front of the studio camera and individual crew people appear in the mirrors in the Bergdorf-Goodman store scenes. During "Second Hand Rose", the camera shows up in two of the oval shaped counter-top mirrors (screen right)near the beginning of the interior segment @30:24 on the DVD. Next @31:03, a single crew man in a dark suit and bow tie is clearly visible in another counter-top oval mirror (screen right) just as Barbra approaches immediately prior to putting on a very large, heavy necklace from the counter top. Finally, @32:09 a young crew guy with dark hair and an open shirt is clearly visible for several seconds in another oval mirror (lower screen left) as Barbra dances in a big mink coat singing "I Got Plenty of Nothin".

One Of The Best Television Specials Of All Time!!
27 May 2000 | by (Stockton, California) – See all my reviews

If people didn't know who Barbra Streisand was before this,...(is that POSSIBLE?)...they sure knew who she was after!

This show went on to win 5 Emmys, & stands out as one the best things Streisand has ever done.

It's made up of 3 acts....

ACT I...Barbra singing standards from room to room, filled with musicians, including a segment where she is a little girl again,all ending with a splendid version of her signature song,(at the time)..."People".

ACT II....A musical tour of Bergdoff-Goodman,while Barbra Sings poverty songs..it's better than it sounds...

ACT III.....The best part, Just Barbra,musicians,& some great songs,like....."Happy Days Are Here Again",& a "Funny Girl" medley....

all in all, a great part of television history,made by one of the greatest performers in the world!
