Like giant monuments to good old-fashioned star quality, Funny Girl (1968) and Funny Lady (1975) hark back to the golden days of American vaudeville, while essentially celebrating one of the great, egotistical show-business talents of all time. Viewed end to end, these two films, which tell the story of Ziegfeld comedienne Fanny Brice, run for almost five hours.
A double bill of films detailing the life of musical comedienne Fanny Brice. In 'Funny Girl', Fanny (Barbra Streisand) is an aspiring star living in New York in the early 1900s. She has the chance to realize her ambition when she meets playboy Nick Arnstein (Omar Sharif), who introduces her to Florenz Ziegfeld (Walter Pidgeon). When Ziegfeld puts Fanny in his Follies, she becomes an instant hit.

Funny Girl is Broadway's classic rags-to-riches love story about legendary entertainer Fanny Brice during Ziegfeld's Golden Era of burlesque. Its beloved score by Jule Styne and Bob Merrill is filled with unforgettable songs like "Don't Rain on My Parade," "I'm the Greatest Star," "The Music That Makes Me Dance," and the iconic hit "People." Barbra Streisand first immortalized these songs in the original 1964 Broadway smash, and yet again in the famous movie adaptation several years later.
