Funny Girl U

Part of Musical Fridays
William Wyler, USA, 1968, 155m.

The screening will be followed by a Fashion Film Club discussion with bestselling author and editor Kevin Sessums (Mississippi Sissy, Interview, Vanity Fair), hosted by Club founder Sarah Bailey.

Funny Girl follows the early career of stage comedienne Fanny Brice, a role that earned Barbra Streisand the 1968 Oscar for Best Actress. Only her mother believes Fanny can make it in show business, but when she gets her first break at Keeney's Music Hall, her hilarious debut gets her hired as a comedienne. Fanny becomes a star, falls in love and marries Nick Arnstein (Omar Sharif), a handsome gambler. The film's many memorable songs include 'Don't Rain on My Parade' and the Streisand classic 'People.'

Kevin Sessums is a former contributing editor Vanity Fair and author of two New York Times bestselling memoirs, Mississippi Sissy and I Left It on the Mountain.

Barbra Streisand, Omar Sharif
