Overview

Four disparate films starring Barbra Streisand -- The Main Event, Nuts, Up the Sandbox, and What's Up, Doc? -- are brought together for this four-DVD collector's set. What's Up, Doc? and The Main Event have both been widescreen transfers at the aspect ratio of 1.85:1, which is letterboxed on conventional televisions and enhanced for 16 x 9 playback on widescreen monitors. The films' original English-language mono soundtracks are mastered in Dolby Digital, as are alternate soundtracks dubbed in French. The discs also includes optional subtitles in English, French, and Spanish. Nuts features the same technical specifications, except that the English-language soundtrack is in Dolby Digital Surround, and the French-language track is in Dolby Digital Mono, while Up the Sandbox also includes the same features as What's Up, Doc? and The Main Event, except for the absence of a French-language audio track.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
Barbra Streisand's mantel overflows with Oscars, Emmys, Grammys, and other awards from 40-plus years of stardom. This four-film collection celebrates Streisand's golden years as a screen actress, beginning with Peter Bogdanovich's superb screwball comedy What's Up, Doc?, an update of the Howard Hawks classic Bringing Up Baby featuring Ryan O'Neal in the Cary Grant role. The Main Event pairs the two again, this time with La Streisand attempting to whip washed-up pugilist O'Neill into shape for a big-time bout. Next up is Nuts, featuring Streisand in one of her most challenging roles -- that of a call girl charged with murder who desperately fights her parents' efforts to play the insanity card. Also featured here is Up the Sandbox, an interestingly complex film from 1972 in which Streisand portrays a pregnant mother awash in fears, including concern that her husband (David Selby) is having an extramarital affair. Streisand offers commentary tracks on all of these films, which also arrive on DVD with documentaries, trailers, and other tasty tidbits.

Barbra Streisand Giftset 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Guest More than 1 year ago
After watching all four Streisand flicks, I enjoyed them even more while listening to her and the directors discuss why scenes were made they way they were (no pun intended!). It was very fascinating to learn about her opinions on various segments of the films. She is very intent on creating a certain style for each movie; this giftset explains this and more. I advise this package for anyone who enjoys successful artists with giftsets.
