Pitch perfect: From Funny Girl to A Star Is Born, the meteoric rise of Barbra Streisand In 1970 Barbra Streisand published a story in Life magazine titled "Who Am I Anyway?" It was the very question two leading photojournalists of the day Steve Schapiro and Lawrence Schiller were also asking as they photographed her during her first five years in Hollywood, working to get beneath the veneer and capture "the real Barbra."

Brimming with photographs over half of which have never been published before and stories behind the shots from Schapiro and Schiller, this is a must-have collection for any Streisand fan. All the best movies of Streisand's first Hollywood decade are here: Funny Girl, On a Clear Day You Can See Forever, The Way We Were, The Owl and the Pussycat, Up the Sandbox, Funny Lady, and A Star Is Born. So too are her loves, directors, confidantes, and costars: Elliott Gould, William Wyler, Sydney Pollack, Vincente Minnelli, Cis Corman, Omar Sharif, Kris Kristofferson, and, of course, Robert Redford.

Through it all a picture emerges not of a singer who could act, but of an actress who could sing, write, direct, dance, and do just about anything she put her mind to. Limited to a total of 1,200 numbered copies signed by Steve Schapiro and Lawrence Schiller, this book is available as Collector's Edition (No. 201-1,200)

Review door Siep Kuypers, Geplaatst op 01-11-2014.
Verweg het beste boek over Barbra Streisand ooit. Ik heb alle boeken die ooit over haar verschenen zijn, maar dit fotoboek (want dat is het vooral) steekt er met kop en schouders boven uit.
De grootte van de foto's, de kwaliteit van het materiaal, de zorg die aan alles besteed is, maar ook de vele, vele onbekende foto's die hier te vinden zijn - ik raak niet uitgekeken.
Eén heel klein min-puntje: Barbra's eigen handtekening ontbreekt. Maar ja, die moet de koper bij het volgende concert maar weten te bemachtigen. Deze koper gaat dit zeker proberen.
