5.0 su 5 stelle Great entertainment! 26 maggio 2015

Loved watching this show! The show has 3 themes. The first theme is Barbra at a museum ( the Philadelphia Museum of Art) and imagines herself in the paintings. She has some beautiful songs and there are a wide range of musical numbers. Great costumes and entertainment. The second is circus theme with live animals in one studio set up. She sings amusing numbers with the animals in camera frame. The last thing is her singing at a microphone is a beautiful dress. She sings lovely songs and ballads. I loved watching it and will play it often since I really enjoyed the music and of course her singing! What talent!

Originally telecast on Wednesday March 30,1966, this was Barbra Streisand's follow up to her acclaimed television special of the prior year "My Name is Barbra". The same crew was used; Joe Layton produced and choreographed, Dwight Hemion directed, Peter Matz was the musical arranger and conductor, and Robert Emmett wrote her monologues. Again it would be divided into three segments or acts, including one location shoot, and a straight concert segment for the conclusion. Finally, just as before, Ms. Streisand would be the sole star. Both are so alike that she herself referred to them as "my bookends", the only appreciable difference being this one would be filmed in color hence the title "Color Me Barbra".

The opening sequence is inspired, a blank shocking pink screen while the off camera Ms. Streisand sings in sweetly piercing tones, "Draw Me A Circle", a circle is drawn by an invisible hand, like a more sophisticated Etch-a-Sketch. It's a cartoon or caricature of a face; the features are filled in to match the song's lyrics. At the conclusion there is a charming, brightly colored sketch of Streisand's face, which will be the show's logo, on the last words it fades into her real face. A tip of the hat to Elinor Bunin who was the creator.

The first act is set in the Philadelphia Museum of Art where Ms. Streisand clad in a floor length black gown with a gauzy white apron over it, hair piled high on her head explores a multitude of delights. And what a treasure trove it is, ceiling to floor medieval tapestries, a huge Alexander Calder mobile, period rooms from Louis XVI, Moorish arches, ancient Egyptian artifacts, masterpieces by Sargent, Renoir and Modigliani, stark contemporary art. As she sings her songs, "Yesterdays", "One Kiss", "The Minute Waltz", "Gotta Move!" "Non, C'est Rien" and "Where or When", she will literally become part of a painting or exhibit. For example in performing "Non, C'est Rien", Streisand becomes the model in Modigliani's "Portrait of a Polish Woman". In it's time, this was very original, very clever, pre MTV, the music and the art complement each other, and it is over before the novelty wears off. My personal favorites "Gotta Move!" set in a modern art section, I'm not a fan of that particular style, but liked the pulsing, frenetic beat, complete with bongos, Streisand edgy and stiletto sharp in diction and appearance in best mid Sixties op-art fashion, down to the boldly patterned rainbow hued dress and sequined eyelids. The second is "Where or When" which Streisand sings in a halting, yearning manner sitting on the edge of a reflecting pool in an age- old Egyptian room. As she sings the first few lines gazing at her reflection in the water, she stirs it with her finger, as the water ripples, her image metamorphoses into a classic queen of the Nile, complete with regal headdress. At the song's conclusion she is in profile, and the camera pulls back to take in the entire room, and to the right of Streisand is the world famous bust of the legendary Egyptioan Queen Nefertiti in profile. Ms. Streisand's profile at times had been compared to Nefertiti's, and this was an inspired tongue in cheek acknowledgement.

Act Two, Streisand introduces us to her white poodle Sadie and performs a semi-amusing monologue on animals and pets, which continues into a medley set in a pink and orange circus ring complete with animals galore, a baby elephant, llama, pony, penguins, pigs, a tiger. As she interacts with the menagerie, she sings songs appropriate to the animal and the situation. A truly funny moment is when both she and an anteater face each other in profile, while she sings a line from the song "Small World" - "We have so much in common it's a phenomenon...". This is quite witty, her profile compared to Nefertiti's first, then an anteater's going from the sublime to the ridiculous! All in all, light, easy, and entertaining, the animals are cute, especially a band of adorable penguins who jump out of their open pen, and Streisand seems to have a good time with all of them.

Finally a concert to a live studio audience culled from her fan clubs, who are yelling bravo before she even sings a note. Ms. Streisand first poised on a freestanding white curved stairway looks very attractive in a simple sleeveless white evening gown as she launches zestfully into Harold Arlen's wonderful "Any Place I Hang My Hat Is Home." There follows a slow, introspective, version of "It Had to Be You", which provides an interesting contrast with Harry Connick Jr.'s more recent zippier rendition. While I like them both, I think Streisand's wins. She's quite sexy, showing off her curves in her clinging white as she reclines languorously on a bench to coo "C'est Si Bon." As her finale she rips into the pulsating "Where Am I Going?" from the then current Broadway musical "Sweet Charity", it's a challenging, rangy number to which she does full justice, although it's a little over the top. The encore "Starting Here, Starting Now" while the credits roll along side her is beautifully done and Streisand takes off, soaring lightly and effortlessly with the music. This was a favorite of my wife and myself we had it played and sung by our soloist before our wedding began, so her rendition links a golden memory for me.

Ms. Streisand is simply wonderful, in superb voice, doing full justice to her varied repetoire. She's funny, full of high spirits, yet can switch easily to a dramatic intensity. She looks great in her various getups, except in the circus sequence, a radioactive orange mistake. The bottom line she's mesmerizing, and carries the weight of the entire show lightly on her shoulders.

As marvelous as Ms. Streisand is, she didn't do it alone, bravos to the production team mentioned earlier particularly to Joe Layton, whose fresh creative vision shaped the specials helping to make them unique, and Peter Matz who arranged such exciting, innovative musical arrangements, breathing fresh life into old standards and making new songs sparkle, not just here but in her early albums as well. Together coupled with Streisand's natural talent a scintillating star conquered the television world.

I'm not a fan of the current Ms. Streisand for various reasons, and haven't been for some time, but I can still appreciate the artistry and glory of her first decade in show business. If you want to see why Barbra Streisand caused such a sensation in the entertainment world back in the 1960's, why everyone was talking about her, watch "Color Me Barbra" and it's predecessor "My Name Is Barbra", and you'll know.

5.0 su 5 stelle A passionate sequel that equaled it's predecessor 29 giugno 2006

On March 30th, 1966...... Barbara Streisand's second television special for CBS had millions of Americans searching for a friend that owned a color television set. By the mid 60's, Streisand was being heralded as the greatest diva America had seen in ages. She had created a stir among both young and old that matched Beatlemania. Her first television special, "My Name Is Barbara" had won five Emmy awards. Now, we were going to see her on televison in full color for the first time. "Color Me Barbara" was a national event that matched the passionate artistic flair of her first special in every respect. When we viewed and heard Streisand singing to the strange, haunting opening animation of "Draw Me A Circle" at the very opening of the show...... we all knew that we were in for a great hour of television. This was 1960's television production at it's finest. You had to have been there.....

A must for any Streisand lover - the early years. When I lost my collection of CDs, the Streisand CDs were some of the first I replace.
