In 1970 Barbra Streisand published a story in Life magazine titled "Who Am I
Anyway?" It was the very question two leading photojournalists of the day—Steve
Schapiro and Lawrence Schiller—were also asking as they photographed her during
her first five years in Hollywood, working to get beneath the veneer and capture "the
Brimming with photographs—over half of which have never been published
before—and stories behind the shots from Schapiro and Schiller, this is a
must-have collection for any Streisand fan. All the best movies of Streisand's first
Hollywood decade are here: Funny Girl, On a Clear Day You Can See Forever, The Way
We Were, The Owl and the Pussycat, Up the Sandbox, Funny Lady, and A Star Is Born.
So too are her loves, directors, confidantes, and costars: Elliott Gould, William Wyler,
Sydney Pollack, Vincente Minnelli, Cis Corman, Omar Sharif, Kris Kristofferson, and,
of course, Robert Redford. Through it all a picture emerges not of a singer who could
act, but of an actress who could sing, write, direct, dance, and do just about anything she
put her mind to.
