I'm Barbra Streisand. Need I say more ?
Well, if I have to : It's 1974 and I'm the hottest name on the movie marquees across America. I'm 32, and I would be incredible as the zany Auntie Mame. No Vaseline is required. I just finished the sometimes-funny "For Pete's Sake" and I'm now starting production on the sequel to 'Funny Girl' called 'Funny Lady', which I know will be a bomb. But a contract is a contract, and this is the last movie I need to do for Mr. Stark.
However, everyone knows that I should be starring in 'Mame' and not that Lucy person. I could do wonders with the score, though I'd still struggle with the dancing. So I called Jerry Herman, and he said he hated me in 'Hello Dolly' so why would he halt production and wait until I was available for 'Mame' ?
Well, the answer to that question and my attempt in 2002 to remake the movie can be found in my 1,050 page memoir "My Name Is Barbra" , coming out November 7. Buy your copy now !
