The life of Fanny Brice, famed comedienne and entertainer of the early 1900s. We see her rise to fame as a Ziegfeld girl, subsequent career, and her personal life, particularly her relationship with Nick Arnstein.
Matchmaker Dolly Levi travels to Yonkers to find a partner for "half-a-millionaire" Horace Vandergelder, convincing his niece, his niece's intended, and his two clerks to travel to New York City along the way.
Two researchers have come to San Francisco to compete for a research grant in Music. One seems a bit distracted, and that was before he meets her. A strange woman seems to have devoted her life to confusing and embarassing him. At the same time a woman has her jewels stolen and a government whistle blower arrives with his stolen top secret papers. All, of course have the same style and color overnight bag.Written by

The movie premiered at the 6,000 seat Radio City Music Hall Theater in New York City in 1972. The film's first 2 weekends broke the house record that had stood since 1933. See more »
When they are traveling inside the Chinese dragon and the camera zooms in on their faces, both of Howard's hands are visible holding the horizontal bar inside the dragon's head, but in the wide angle views, both before and after, one of his hands is on the base of the vertical pole holding the dragon head up from the bicycle.

Well, this last time was not my fault.
Nothing, nothing, really. It was just a little classroom, it sort of burned down.
Well, blew up actually.

I won't give away too much of the plot, but let's just say 5 identical bags get mixed up in San Francisco. Barbra Streisand hasn't been in a lot of films and after seeing this, I have to say, more's the pity. She sparkles in this film! Of course, the film itself is a madcap adventure and she just fit right in. Ryan O'Neal and the always-hilarious (unfortunately, late) Madeline Kahn also make this movie just a hoot to watch! Watch a lot of comedy before you watch this one so your laughing muscles will be in shape - that way you won't hurt yourself! This is a funny funny movie!
