streisand: Goes to Bergdorf’s


This is hands down one of my favorite moments in musical history, art history, tv history and Streisand history. There is just something so magical and imaginative about this whimsical experience.

I remember Barbra recalling when she shot this sequence in 1965 and her telling the interviewer that CBS has told her manager that this TV special was career suicide for her because she was the only star, no guests just Barbra. This special “My Name is Barbra” went on to be nominated for 4 Emmy awards and won 3.

Just goes to show, when you have the talent and you believe in yourself 100% you don’t need the shticks. You just need yourself and magic is sure to happen.
