Barbra's third special was her most original without a doubt!
Barbra's 3rd television special was trying to be something totally different than her first two. It succeeded. I think the choices of material could have been better in certain parts of the special, that's all. The best part was at the end, when Barbra, as The Belle Of 14th street,sang for us several songs. I thought the Madame McCree number in the 2nd act, using Barbra as both Madame McCree and the little boy in the audience was quite good. I also liked the way the special opened, with the use of animation with Barbra singing the song, "I don't care". I applaud "The Belle Of Fourteenth Street" for being original and different, and for not trying to repeat the exact same formula as Barbra's first 2 specials. For that alone, it was refreshing. On a scale of 1-10,(10 being the best), I give "The Belle Of Fourteenth Street" a 7.
