Perhaps it's because I belong to another generation, or perhaps it's just my not bearing black and white video (but I find it unlikely because I love old movies from the 30's). I loved "Color Me Barbra" (1966) for its original directing style and scenography, and I have to say that "My Name Is Barbra" disappointed me. I thought I was going to view a different show. Perhaps more money was available the following year, hence the huge difference between the two television specials.
If you are going to view "My Name Is Barbra" for the first time, expect to attend a concert.
Barbra Streisand is phenomenal, as always. She is a great entertainer with a lovely sense of humor.
An album was released the same year this television special aired (1965); it was certified gold and peaked at #2 on the US charts.
