MUSEUM OF TELEVISION & RADIO SCREENING SERIES, THE: BARBRA STREISAND: THE TELEVISION PERFORMANCES, PACKAGE 5: BARBRA STREISAND: A HAPPENING IN CENTRAL PARK

Summary

"Barbra Streisand: A Happening in Central Park" An estimated 135,000 people jammed Central ParkÕs Sheep Meadow for this free solo concert. Six television cameras and a film camera mounted on a helicopter recorded the concert and the audience from every conceivable angle. Streisand progresses through a wide range of emotions and moods in her songs, which include "The Nearness of You," "Second-Hand Rose," her trademark subdued version of "Happy Days Are Here Again," and -- despite the fact that it was summertime -- "Silent Night," which stopped the show. (September 15, 1968; CBS, 60 min.)

"The Dinah Shore Show" President John F. Kennedy was so impressed with StreisandÕs performance of "Cry Me a River" and "Happy Days Are Here Again" on this show that she was invited to sing at the White House. (May 12, 1963; NBC, 10 min.)
