The Late Movies: Happy Birthday, Barbra Streisand

Happy 70th Birthday to singer, actress, writer, film producer, director and all-around fabulous gal, Barbra Streisand. Babs has had a pretty neat career. Besides conquering stage and screen, she holds the record for the most top-ten albums of any female recording artist. She and Katharine Hepburn are the only two women to ever share an Academy Award for Best Actress. (Streisand won for Funny Girl). Here, a fun look at some of her greatest moments.

Don't Rain on My Parade

Barbra became a star of stage and screen with her performance in Funny Girl


Streisand was famously snubbed at the Oscars for her role as a headstrong young Jewish girl who defied tradition, but the film received five nods.

The Way We Were

Are there any women who don't weep at the love story of Katie and Hubbell?  I have never met one.

Hello, Dolly

Watch the original theatrical trailer for the film adaptation of Hello, Dolly!, directed by Gene Kelly in 1969.

The Judy Garland Show

In 1963, Streisand was one half of a marvelous, powerful counterpoint duet of "Get Happy" and "Happy Days Are Here Again" with Judy Garland. Goosebumps!

19-Second Note

During a recording session in 1988, Streisand held one note for 19 seconds. This is reportedly not her longest note, but that doesn't make this one any less any impressive.


Though Streisand was reportedly not a fan of Glee, this uber-Babs fan sang "Papa Can You Hear Me?" on an episode.
