24 reasons to love Streisand - A birthday countdown

24 → her birthday & lucky number

#22. This duet and this quote

“David [Begelman] took me to see [Barbra Streisand] in Las Vegas, when she was just starting out. I was curious, because I never heard so many people complaining… ‘God, is she ugly!’ Everybody was saying, ‘My God, I never saw anyone so ugly…’ And they said it with such force… And they said it so often that I thought, this girl must have something! And we were sitting at the table, and David was very proud the agency had just signed Bob Goulet. They had a choice of signing either Bob or Barbra, and David kept saying ‘Wait’ll you see this ugly, ugly girl!’

And Barbra came out. And after her first number I looked at David and said ‘Well, you blew it…’”

— Judy Garland

Listening to Barbra Streisand in honor of her birthday. <3

Still not over the fact that Gene Kelly thought that Judy Garland was the sexiest woman in Hollywood.

Happy 72nd birthday, Barbra Streisand! (b. April 24, 1942)

If you’re a Judy Garland fan and you haven’t heard “Judy at Carnegie Hall”…

You’re missing out.

Big.

Do yourself a favor and find a copy of that concert. You won’t regret it.

The fact that Julie Andrews was in the audience of Judy’s concert at Carnegie Hall makes my heart warm.

53 years ago today, Judy Garland made history at Carnegie Hall.

The April 23, 1961 concert has been called “the greatest night in show business history”.

The double album recorded that night remains one of the most successful albums in history, spending 73 weeks on the Billboard Chart (13 weeks at #1) and it’s never been out of print.

"Judy at Carnegie Hall" won 4 Grammy Awards, and was the first live album, and the first album by a female performer to win the Grammy for Album of the Year.

I say The Way We Were is my all-time favorite film but then I watch Yentl and I am convinced it’s the best thing ever made. It’s all there: Judaism, feminism, the greatest music, naked Mandy Patinkin, a love triangle, superb direction, amazing cinematography… and it’s all Barbra; her ideas, brains, beauty and talent. 
Every time I watch Yentl, I’m just so proud of Barbra’s brilliance, so it’s a very important film for me (as a fan) for all it represents for Barbra both professionally and personally.


"The first woman in the history of motion pictures to produce, direct, write and perform a film’s title role."
