Funny Girl

Director: William Wyler • US

Revisit an old friend with Barbra Streisand’s classic Oscar®-winning turn in this 1968 smash film version of the Broadway musical that made her famous. If you can’t make it to this season’s sold-out London revival, this beautifully restored print showcases the musical’s grandest numbers, such as “People” and “Don’t Rain on My Parade,” in its archetypal rags-to-riches tale of Fanny Brice, a young girl from New York’s Lower East Side who became an integral part of the Ziegfeld Follies stage shows.
