Scene of the Day: Funny Girl

Today's "scene of the day" comes from one of my favorite films - William Wyler's 1968 "Funny Girl," starring the lovely Barbra Streisand. My favorite scene of the film is the showstopping "Don't Rain on My Parade," which occurs right at the end of act one (it is a long movie). Experience with me again the emotion that charges through her voice as she runs across the station, having changed her mind about her husband, then soak in the magic of the climactic aerial shot featuring Barbra belting the final notes of the song as she rides the steamer... (Forgive the French subtitles, as well. It was the best I could do.)
