Overview

In searching for prime material for an album devoted to songs originally featured in Hollywood films, Barbra Streisand didn’t have to look far. The Movie Album touches on uncontestable gems that stretch back to the 1930s (“I’m In the Mood for Love,” “Smile"), the 1950s and '60s ("Wild is the Wind," “Emily,” “Moon River”), and beyond (“How Do You Keep the Music Playing,” “Calling You” from Baghdad Café ).There’s even a recently composed song -- "More in Love With You"-- that brings together the theme music of the 1962 film, The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, with original lyrics by Streisand favorites Alan and Marilyn Bergman. Streisand -- who, with her incomparable vocal talents, can make even a lackluster song shine -- simply goes to town with this embarrassment of riches, skillfully focusing attention on both the quality of the songs and her own still-lustrous pipes. This jewel of an album deserves pride of place alongside Streisand’s Broadway tributes --themselves highpoints in her still vital career. [The Bonus DVD version features alternate Streisand performances of "I'm In the Mood For Love" and "Wild Is the Wind.]
