In 1968, Barbra Streisand burst onto the silver screen with one of the best debuts in cinema history, taking home an Oscar for her performance.
Based on the stage musical of the same name, Funny Girl follows the life of Fanny Brice (Streisand), from singing in barrooms in her Lower East Side neighborhood to her ascent to glamorous Broadway as part of Florenz Ziegfeld’s company—but her tumultuous romance with gambler Nick Arnstein (Omar Sharif) complicates her path to stardom.
