The life of Fanny Brice, famed comedienne and entertainer of the early 1900s. We see her rise to fame as a Ziegfeld girl, subsequent career, and her personal life, particularly her relationship with Nick Arnstein.
Included among the American Film Institute's 2000 list of the 500 movies nominated for the Top 100 Funniest American Movies.
Throughout her marriage to Nick Arnstein/Omar Shariff, Fanny Brice/Barbra Streisand wears her hair in a style that is inappropriate for the time period - it's a coiffure that flatters Streisand's face, but would never have been worn in the 1920s or the 1930s.
The original theatrical version included an additional overture before the opening credits, an intermission after "Don't Rain On My Parade," and exit music after the end credits. These additional music pieces have been restored for the DVD release.
