DAILY DOSE OF DELIGHT #16 (From FUNNY GIRL) in MAD ABOUT MUSICALS: THE HISTORY OF THE HOLLYWOOD MUSICALS Posted June 29, 2018 1. If Streistand had been more expressive and theatrical in this scene if would have taken away fro the scene. To give it over expression would have made no sense for this scene. Her performance would have been way out of context if she had belted the song "People" out. It would have made her voice unbearable to hear if she had belted it out. I will admitt I am not a fan of hers at all but she did fit this part to a tee and she used just the right amount of exprssion, theatrics and kept her song in pitch and octave where it needed to be. 2. The two exchange the glances and smiles to show the growing fondness and interest in each other. As she sings and he walks closer to her you can see the fondness and truth to the lyrics. 3. Streisand's performance is excentuated so well by the lighting and the close up shots of her. You can see the use of almost Noir in the lighting which shows the emotion on her face and his as they go through the song. William Wyler always used lighting as a key to his shots as he directed.
