Only her mother believes fanny can make it in show business. When she gets her first break at keeney's music hall, her hilarious debut as a rollerskating chorus girl gets her hired as a comedienne. A year later, fanny is working for florenz ziegfeld in his famous follies and brings the house down.
Editor's Note
In FUNNY GIRL, the highly fictionalized musical biopic, Barbara Streisand makes her film debut in a reprisal of her Broadway role as Ziegfeld star Fanny Brice. Brice, a poor Jewish girl from New York's Lower East Side, rose to fame and won audience's hearts everywhere with her comic antics and powerful singing. Unfortunately, she had far less success in her personal life, and the film focuses on her doomed romance with her first husband, gambler Nicky Arnstein.
