One in this series of talk shows hosted by Rosie O'Donnell. Performer, actress, and director Barbra Streisand is the much-anticipated special guest on this program, with an introduction by Rosie O'Donnell's sister. Rosie O'Donnell expresses her excitement about having Streisand on the show, and displays her collection of fan memorabilia, including Barbra Streisand mugs, albums, and refrigerator magnets. A series of film clips from Streisand's movie career follows, accompanied by her song, "The Way We Were." When Streisand joins her on the stage, O'Donnell tearfully explains why Streisand has always been an inspirational part of her life, and then introduces excerpts from her 1962 performance on "The Ed Sullivan Show" and "My Name is Barbra." Topics discussed include the following: stage fright and Streisand's experiences performing live; growing up in New York; her source of inspiration for working on "Yentl"; the importance of Streisand's Golden Globe Award; and the power of the press. Clips of "Funny Girl," "Barbra Streisand: The Concert," and "Yentl" are then played. They go on to discuss the latest album, "Higher Ground," dedicated to Virginia Clinton, President Clinton's mother; and a few of Streisand's favorite movies and songs. A clip from "Pensacola: Wings of Gold" is played as well as a song from the album, "James Brolin Sings." Streisand's boyfriend, Brolin, joins them on stage and they discuss his work and the Streisand Foundation. O'Donnell concludes the show by opening a special bottle of champagne and toasting the couple.
