Funny Girl
One of the most popular movie musicals ever made, Funny Girl follows the early career of stage comedienne Fanny Brice - a role that earned Barbra Streisand the 1968 Oscar for Best Actress. As the film opens, only her mother believes Fanny can make it in show business. When she gets her first break at Keeney's Music Hall, her hilarious debut as a roller-skating chorus girl gets her hired as a comedienne. A year later Fanny is working for Florenz Ziegfeld in his famous Follies and brings down the house with an outrageous and unplanned number. Fanny becomes a star, falls in love and marries Nick Arnstein (Omar Sharif), a handsome gambler whose luck doesn't hold up. The film's many memorable songs include 'Dont Rain On My Parade' and the Streisand classic 'People'.

Funny Lady
Barbra Streisand returns as Fanny Brice in this sequel to William Wyler's Oscar-winning FUNNY GIRL. FUNNY LADY picks up the saga of entertainer-comedienne Brice after her separation from playboy millionaire Nick Arnstein (Omar Sharif). Newly single, she teams up brash Broadway producer, songwriter, and entrepreneur Billy Rose (James Caan), a showman whose lack of polish is made up in his boundless enthusiasm. Before long, Rose's professional relationship with Fanny turns into a touching and turbulent personal one. Wyler's extravagant production is highlighted by lavish musical numbers, elegant costumes and a dynamic cast, which is lead by Barbra Streisand's signature style and poise.

For Pete's Sake
Superstar Barbra Streisand brings her comedic skills to the screen as Henrietta (or Henry), the devoted but zany wife of cabby Pete (Michael Sarrazin). Henry will stop at nothing to put Pete through school, so when Pete gets a hot tip on the stock market, Henry raises $3,000, convincing him that the loan came from her rich uncle instead of the local shark! But as the stock tumbles, the interest rate escalates - and so does the pace as Henry gets herself into one wacky mess after another to earn the money back before Pete finds out!

The Owl And The Pussycat
Meek, owlish Felix (George Segal) and strident catty Doris (Barbra Streisand) live in the same apartment building. His incessant typing bothers her, her gentlemen callers bother him. Felix informs the landlord of her activities, so Doris moves in on Felix. When they both get thrown out and move in with with Barney (Robert Klein), until their antics drive him out! That's when Doris and Felix finally decide to put theory into pracise, but do opposites attract? The Streisand/Segal pairing does in this comedy classic!
