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 »

Hello, Gorgeous!, 3 August 2014
Author: (sylviastel@aol.com) from United States

Barbra Streisand was a relative newcomer in 1965 but she was getting rightfully noticed by critics and fans alike. She was playing Fanny Brice in the Broadway musical, Funny Girl. She won a Tony Award and later an Academy award for her film performance. This special would win 5 Emmy Awards where it displayed Barbra's vocal talents as well as humor. She can be childlike in one sketch or prancing through Bergdorf Goodman's department store. She looks marvelous in black and white too. Barbra is truly a star in the making and well worth it. She has the talent & power to pull it off and still does fifty years later. Barbra shines still even in black and white but the special is not long enough.
