VERY GOOD 1973 film with Barbra playing Fanny Brice again after her 1968 first part Fanny Brice film Funny Girl which I saw back in Oct. '15. I wish I had seen both fairly close together since I see LOTS of movies.
James Caan is excellent as songwriter Billy Rose.
Lots of high quality production numbers. A bit longish at 135 minutes - but worth a view.
Interesting how they theatrically 'aged' Barbra and Omar Sharif as Nicky Arnstein (Brice's first husband) near end of the film.
And I also enjoyed Royce Wallace as the maid Adele; a familiar face, but I had to research who played the part.
