“Barbra Streisand was outstanding as the younger Fanny Brice in Funny Girl, and in Funny Lady she’s even better. Ray Stark’s extremely handsome period production also stars James Caan in an excellent characterization of Billy Rose, the second major influence in Brice’s personal life.”
“Funny Lady is superb entertainment…The score includes a lot of fine old standards written by the late Mr. Rose (“Me and My Shadow,” “More Than You Know,” “Paper Moon”) and a bunch of new songs by John Kander and Fred Ebb…talented composers.”
—Vincent Canby, The New York Times
The indelible Barbra Streisand stars in Funny Lady (1975), follow-up to 1968’s award-winning Funny Girl, continuing the saga of sterling entertainer Fanny Brice (Streisand), as fabled on-stage as she was unlucky in love. Divorced from love-of-her-life gambler Nick Arnstein (Omar Sharif), Fanny now finds herself entangled with brash showman/songwriter Billy Rose, pugnaciously incarnated by James Caan. Directed by Herbert Ross (The Turning Point, Footloose), the film was nominated for five Academy Awards®, including Best Cinematography (by the legendary James Wong Howe) and Best Song (“How Lucky Can You Get,” from Cabaret’s John Kander and Fred Ebb).
