Funny Girl (1968) Part 2

May 28, 2011 :: Posted by - admin :: Category - Poker Video

Set in and around New York City just prior to and following World War I, the story opens with Ziegfeld Follies star Fanny Brice (Barbra Streisand) awaiting the return of husband Nicky Arnstein (Omar Sharif) from prison, and then moves into an extended flashback focusing on their meeting and marriage. Fanny is seen as a stage-struck teenager who gets her first job in vaudeville and meets the suave Arnstein following her debut performance. They continue to meet occasionally over the years, becoming more romantically involved as Fanny’s career flourishes and she becomes a star. Arnstein eventually seduces Fanny, who decides to abandon the Follies in favor of Nicky. After winning a fortune playing live strip poker, Nicky agrees to marry Fanny. They move into an expensive house and have a daughter, and Fanny eventually returns to Ziegfeld and the Follies. Meanwhile, Nicky’s various business ventures fail, forcing them to move into an apartment. Refusing financial support from his wife, he becomes involved in a bonds scam and is imprisoned for embezzlement for eighteen months. Following Nick’s release from prison, he and Fanny briefly reunite long enough to agree to separate.

  5. StreisandLove Says:

    I never understood why people found her ugly. I remember being five and thinking her strange nose, long nails, and thin body was the prettiest thing in the world, and I have to be just like her someday.

  6. PeaceNdLovee Says:

    I can’t help but to laugh at the scene where they call Barbra Streisand ugly.

  7. placidelectric Says:

    kicked off because she was too skinny….. what happened to this country, she’d almost be considered “plus size” now, because shes not a size 2

  8. MsPeace2love Says:

    i wonder if she ever poked herself in the eye with her nails before =P
