My second Barbra movie tonight, Funny Girl. Barbra was in her twenties in this movie, and once again, it ends without a happy ever after.....dang it! Did she ever make a movie with a happy ending? The leading man this time was Omar Sharif, umm. In this movie she plays the character of Fanny Brice who was a real person. She was a comedienne and had a very successful career with the Ziegfeld Follies. Barbra had also played her earlier on Broadway. Anyway, I really enjoyed it and I'm not sure I ever saw it before.
That's all I have of Barbra for now. Maybe "The Way We Were" next weekend, we'll see.
