Did You Know?

Trivia:
The Bergdof Goodman scenes were "a nightmare" for the director and crew, as the first floor of the store was lined with mirrors. Barbra Streisand filmed this scene on a Sunday (her day off from "Funny Girl").See more »
Goofs:
Crew or equipment visible: 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".See more »

Barbra's First TV special a smash hit, 13 February 2007
Author: diannemahoney from United States

I remember stumbling upon this special while channel-surfing in 1965. I had never heard of Barbra before. When the show was over, I thought "This is probably the best thing on TV I will ever see in my life." 42 years later, that has held true. There is still nothing so amazing, so honestly astonishing as the talent that was displayed here. You can talk about all the super-stars you want to, this is the most superlative of them all!

You name it, she can do it. Comedy, pathos, sultry seduction, ballads, Barbra is truly a story-teller. Her ability to pull off anything she attempts is legendary. But this special was made in the beginning, and helped to create the legend that she quickly became. In spite of rising so far in such a short time, she has fulfilled the promise, revealing more of her talents as she went along. But they are all here from the very beginning. You will not be disappointed in viewing this.
