One of the most bombastic big screen debuts in the history of Hollywood musicals. That's what Barbra Streisand delivered in Funny Girl. She was guided by the masterful direction of William Wyler. You're already familiar with this classic film and you already know that its the screen version of the Broadway musical that made young Streisand a blazingly hot new stage and recording star.
That Omar Sharif touch and that William Wyler directorial touch get me every time.
