The Streisand Collection

What's Up, Doc?
What's Up, Doc? joyously recaptures the bubbly style of 1930s screwball comedies-and firmly establishes Barbra Streisand and Ryan O'Neal as a romantic duo uniquely endearing in screen history. Included are a daffy luggage mixup plot, dippy dialogue exchanges, a marvelous example of the art of hotel-room demolition and one of the funniest chase sequences ever, all over San Francisco. Dexterously written with a surefooted sense of the ridiculous by Buck Henry, David Newman and Robert Benton, directed by Peter Bogdanovich with giddy affection for cast with awesomely hilarious players (including film-debuting Madeline Kahn). What's Up, Doc? is no idle question. Among comedy movies, it's the top.

Up the Sandbox
New Yorker Margaret Reynolds has a regularly opinionated mother, a work-absorbed husband and three children. No wonder she unravels upon learning she is pregnant again. A complete modern woman's identity crisis is hatching-with an uncontrollable fantasy life including a romance with Fidel Castro.

As Margaret, Barbra Streisand goes Up the Sandbox for a funny look at liberation, independence and motherhood, based on the Annie Richardson Roiphe bestseller. As adapted by Pulitzer Prize winner Paul Zindel (The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds) and directed by Irvin Kershner (The Empire Strikes Back), Up the Sandbox is an imaginative look at feminism's roots and the dilemma of trying to "have it all."

The Main Event
Can a penniless perfume magnate (Barbra Streisand) find happiness managing the career of a has-been prizefighter (Ryan O'Neal)? This screwball comedy answers that question...pow! Right to the kisser!

The two stars reignite their What's Up, Doc? chemistry seven years later, trading the script's verbal punches with the panache of the great '30s and '40s romantic duos. Director Howard Zieff (Private Benjamin, My Girl) sets them sparring all over Los Angeles, including two boxing landmarks, the Main Street Gym and the Olympic Auditorium. But it's not boxing but the mating of love and laughter that's the main event of The Main Event. And it's nice to feel the knockout punch of movie magic again.

Nuts
The pending case: the People of the State of New York vs. Claudia Draper. The issue: is Claudia mentally competent to stand trial? Sure, she's shocking. Outspoken. Explosive. Defiant. But is she "nuts"?

Barbra Streisand is Claudia and Richard Dreyfuss her public defender in the blistering courtroom thriller Nuts and their first-time pairing results in "the dramatic performances of their careers" (Pat Collins, WWOR-TV New York). The sterling supporting cast-Maureen Stapleton, Karl Malden, James Whitmore, Eli Wallach, Robert Webber and Leslie Nielsen-has been directed to a perfect pitch by Hollywood legend Martin Ritt (Hud Norma Rae). Claudia holds nothing back, so this day in court is one you'll never forget.
