DAILY DOSE OF DELIGHT #16 (From FUNNY GIRL) in MAD ABOUT MUSICALS: THE HISTORY OF THE HOLLYWOOD MUSICALS Posted June 29, 2018 1. If Streisand performed “People” more theatrical or expressive, it would have taken the loneliness, yearning and sadness out of the song. I think it would look like she was doing a vaudeville skit. 2. As Fanny starts to sing she walks away from Nicky while singing to him. He follows her but the longer she sings the further away from each other they get. He’s still listening, he’s just not following. It’s like he’s somewhere else. And she’s feeling strongly that she wants someone who needs her, unlike him. 3. The camera follows Streisand giving her a little space, but once she mentions lovers the camera goes in closer. (So you know this is important to her) When she sings about it being with one person, the camera comes around to the other side of Streisand and backs up a bit to show Omar. (The man she wants as a lover) That’s when she starts to get nervous fiddling with her fingers. The scene ends with the camera getting closer to Streisand and you can see she’s frustrated with the whole situation.
