WestportREADS 2017 Movie: Funny Girl
Funny Girl is a bittersweet, classic musical drama with Barbara Streisand as the vibrant and beautiful young Fanny Brice. She starts out as a bit player on the New York City vaudeville stage, but works her way up to stardom on Broadway. Valued for her vocal and comedic talents by the renowned theater impresario Florenz Ziegfeld (Walter Pidgeon), Fanny thrives, but her relationship with her suave, imprisoned businessman husband, Nick Arnstein (Omar Sharif), is another story. (1968; 2h 31m)
