Funny Girl in Toledo, Ohio

We're S.R.O. tonight. Sadly, the Mary Manse College declared bankruptcy in 1975. The theater has also been demolished.

Barbra postcard

You've probably seen the front image of this postcard before. I'm including the biography from the back side. I bought this card for 25 cents at a flea market back in the '70s. They had a stack of cards and this was the only Barbra one they had.

Uh-oh, sounds like this one could be a turkey.

Up the Sandbox on TV

This was my first viewing of Up The Sandbox. It wasn't my favorite. Of course it didn't help that some scenes were so heavily edited that they didn't make sense. I seem to remember it aired in the middle of the summer (1977).
I didn't see it again until years later when I rented the VHS tape. I finally got to see the whole thing unedited. The story made a little bit more sense, but it still wasn't my favorite.

Barbra: With One More Look at You

TV listing for the syndicated With One More Look at You special. I was lucky enough to see it twice back then. I saw the San Antonio airing and the Austin airing. Would love to see it on DVD (the You-Tube version is poor quality).

Bob Hope

I got this Bob Hope photo from another collector. It's rare to find one in color.

Hello, Dolly! review

Here's a review of Hello, Dolly! from Saturday Review (i believe) that I cut from the bound magazines at my high school library way back when. I know, I know. I was a little devil back then when it came to Barbra. If I wanted something, I just had to have it. But at least I kept it for all these years and can now share it with you.

Stars' homes

I think it's safe to assume this information is now out-of-date!

Barbra at her best?

A better double feature would have been pairing For Pete's Sake with What's Up, Doc?

Zany Fourth

Have a zany fourth with a zany Barbra! Don't know how this movie would do against Transformers on a holiday weekend now-a-days.
