"I sing from my will. My voice is an extension of me. It does what I want it to do. People ask me, ‘How do you hold notes so long?’ I tell them it’s because I want to.", 1967.

Barbra Streisand (April 24, 1942)

"You’ll never know just how much I care

And if I tried, I still couldn’t hide my love for you”

You’ll never know just how much I love you

Happy birthday, Barbra!

Now, the Academy refuses to accept this and I sort of willingly say the Academy… But that’s my memory of it. Of course it was a long time ago.

I was wearing a red skirt, a black jacket and a little Scottish hat with a red plume. At the very end of the number, all I had to do was turn and do a sort of lovely look at Peter. Suddenly, everyone yelled ‘Cut!’; I thought ‘What have I done?’ Well, it turned out the dye off the red feather ran all over my face and the back of my jacket; it looked like there was just blood everywhere. So then they had to reset and get more rain. And they couldn’t figure out what to do with this bloody feather - so they put Vaseline on it.

This was Judy Garland’s and, director of Easter Parade, Charles Walters’ idea that for once a lady that was up all night and distraught wouldn’t wake up looking like perfection with no sleep and no make up.The MGM executives saw the rushes with Judy wearing very little makeup and were appalled at the sight of an MGM star au natural. But since the scene played so well and Peter Lawford joked about her ‘looking horrible’ they decided not too reshoot it.

"Never saw you look quite so pretty before, never saw you dress quite so handsome whats more, I could hardly wait to keep our date, this lovely Easter morning…"

Happy Easter all!
