It surprises me how good of a movie this is.

Films In 2012 (Barbra Streisand Series)

#82: Funny Lady (1975) — Directed by Herbert Ross

Obviously not as good as its prequel, but still a great Barbra Streisand vehicle.

Films In 2012 (Barbra Streisand Series)

#81: A Star Is Born (1976) — Directed by Frank Pierson

A totally worthy addition to the remake canon of the Star Is Born franchise. Barbra Streisand is the ultimate performer, gifted in every song, every emotion, every breath. Kris Kristofferson— not primarily an actor— gives an amazing performance. I thought this was a fantastic movie.
