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.

Great 70s comedy stars Barbra Streisand and Ryan O'Neal in a remake of the classic BRINGING UP BABY with bits of TO HAVE AND HAVE NOT and CASABLANCA thrown in. Fun all the way in this updated story that has O'Neal playing a doofus professor up for a grant and Streisand as the madcap college dropout who plagues him. Madeline Kahn is hilarious as Eunice Burns.
A great team---and backed by Kenneth Mars, Austin Pendleton, Michael Murphy, Sorrell Booke, Mabel Albertson, Graham Jarvis, John Hillerman, Randy Quaid, and especially Liam Dunn as the judge, in one of the best comedy performances ever. Great chase scenes thru San Francisco. The court room scene is hilarious.
Others in the cast include Garahm Jarvis, M. Emmet Walsh, Eleanor Zee, Philip Roth, Stefan Gierasch, Stan Ross, and Kevin O'Neal.
Streisand sings "You're the Top" over the opening credits and "As Time Goes By" from atop a piano. Funny film has perfect timing all the way, thanks to direction from Peter Bogdanovich. A must see.
