50th Anniversary Celebration!

In her feature film debut, Barbra Streisand won the Academy Award for Best Actress and received consistently rave reviews for her portrayal of Fanny Brice, famed comedienne and stage actress.

In turn-of-the-century New York, Fanny Brice dreams of becoming a Broadway star, despite her unglamorous appearance. Soon Fanny’s comedy routines are a hit in the Ziegfeld Follies. 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.

The film was directed by William Wyler and became “one of the top grosses in all L.A. firstrun history.” Music and Lyrics were written by Jule Styne and Bob Merrill and include the hits “People,”

“Second Hand Rose,” and “Don’t Rain on My Parade.”
