What a pleasure to hear soothing words from our president-elect Joe Biden.
Soothing words that lift our spirits up, not words that drag us down into the depths of despair.
Trump shows you who he is- his silence is deafening.
He has no words of truth or compassion because he is only interested in himself and his need for revenge and retaliation.
The people voted in droves this year to make their voices heard. And we welcome this thanksgiving as … Read more »

Dear all…

Don’t assume anything is active, because it may be inactive!

We can’t trust Trump with this election knowing how he is conniving to steal it!

A friend forwarded this to me this morning (see below.) Please make sure you’re registered to vote. This election is too important…

Hoping you’re all well…

I first met Cis Corman in acting class when I was 16! She was 32 and had four children. She remained my best friend and surrogate mother since then. I treasured our lifelong friendship, her intelligence, her taste, and her integrity. I loved Cis dearly and will miss her forever. She was also Auntie Cis to my son Jason.
 
Cis cast our first film for Barwood Films, Up the Sandbox. Cis went on to become a pre-eminent casting director

In times of crises, we join together as one nation indivisible.  We salute our true heroes – the doctors, nurses, scientists, clinicians, pharmacists, food workers and every first responder who compromises their own safety and well-being to ensure ours.

This pandemic has the potential to bring out the best in us — not only as citizens of the United States, but as a global community with a common goal.

Sadly, a lack of leadership compounds the fear and confusion we … Read more »

The Prince of Tides Criterion Edition – Out Now!

The Prince of Tides was released nearly 30 years ago… and I’ve just finished an updated director’s edition working with Criterion on this new package for over a year. I hope you enjoy it as much as I’ve enjoyed doing it.

We’ve restored the movie to a 4K restoration…and I combined commentary that I recorded in 1991 with new commentary that I recorded this past year. There is a special making-of featurette, along with some archival interviews recorded at the

Since voter fraud and voter suppression is still very much an issue in the upcoming election, I wanted to post a section on some of the best articles written by experts on this complex issue and provide information on who to contact if you experience voting problems. It’s so important that Americans are aware and educated so they can insure that their votes are properly counted.

Until the Republican Convention, very few had ever heard of Sarah Palinaand now this mean-spirited campaigner is asking who is Barack Obama???

I’m asking who is Sarah Palin???

  • I know that she’s a woman who doesn’t believe in allowing women the right to choose their own reproductive health decisions even if they are victims of rapeabut approves of these victims getting billed by the government for the rape kits used to examine them.

The Republicans fight dirtyathey take every opportunity to shift the political conversation from substance to frivolity. They don’t want the public to see the huge differences between the two parties.  Less than two weeks ago, John McCain mocked Senator Obama’s appearance at a Hollywood fundraiser.

A couple of weeks ago, I turned on my television to tune into the Sunday morning news shows hoping to get a glimpse of Sarah Palin in order to learn more about her. I remember hearing from Bob Schieffer that McCain’s campaign manager Rick Davis had said, “Palin won’t do many interviews until she is treated with respect and dignity.” I thought I heard wrong.

We are in the worst financial crisis this country has faced in modern times. During these eight long years of Republican control, we have seen runaway greed, the deregulation of financial institutions and the mismanagement of the housing market resulting in the skyrocketing number of home foreclosures. This has led to a disastrous unraveling of the U.S. economy. We can’t continue with four more years of the irresponsible practices and policies of the Bush Administration.

The media has labeled John McCain a “moderate maverick” and a reformer. That moniker could not be more misrepresentative of the core values of the current Republican candidate running for President. The real John McCain has a history of voting against women, veterans, education and the preservation of our civil liberties, in addition to abstaining completely from voting to safeguard our environment in 2007. McCain stated in January of 2008 at the March of Life in Washington DC, “If I … Read more »

You strongly supported Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton for the Democratic nomination. Was switching to Sen. Barack Obama difficult?
We had a very deep bench of Democratic Presidential candidates in the primary, and we were very lucky to finally have two capable, dynamic and intelligent candidates vying to be the nominee. Supporting Sen. Obama for President was an immediate decision for me after Sen. Clinton ended her bid for the Democratic nomination. Throughout this process, they challenged each other to be … Read more »

Democracy Is Dying, Starting in Portland

​Reports confirm that law abiding American citizens are being plucked off the streets of Portland, Oregon, by otherwise unidentified groups of men wearing camouflage clothing, carrying weapons, and cruising in unmarked combat vehicles.

​The same reports identify these vigilantes as troops from U.S. Customs and Border Patrol and security services under the control of the Department of Homeland Security.  The acting deputy secretary of DHS, Ken Cuccinelli, stated what many immediately believed, that this … Read more »

Whenever I hear white Americans say “my family had nothing to do with slavery so why should I apologize” I think of Willy Brandt.

Willy Brandt was Germany’s Chancellor from 1969 to 1974. In 1970, he made an historic visit to Poland. Brandt came to the site of the Warsaw Ghetto—an open-air walled prison where the Nazis forced Jews to live before “liquidating” it in 1943. Brandt came to acknowledge Germany’s culpability in the

It’s always upsetting when my words are taken out of context.

Here is the truth. When I started working on my 1976 movie, A Star is Born, I tried to get my friend Sydney Pollack to direct it. I hired Frank Pierson to rewrite the screenplay, but then he told me he wouldn’t do a second draft unless he also directed the film. And since Sydney was unavailable and we had to start shooting, I had to agree to … Read more »

I cloned Sammie once when she died… yet I keep hearing I cloned her two times. You can get a litter of puppies from one cloning… and that’s what we got. I also read that I cloned her in Korea… also untrue. It was in the USA. The cost was half of what they say!

I explained my reasons in this article which I feel I must share again.

To clarity misinformation in a story issued by local Los Angeles television station, KABC, the nature of cloning occasionally results in the birth of a litter rather than a single animal. The cloning procedure in this case resulted in a litter of four beautiful puppies, three of which survived. The KABC story was inaccurate in it’s headline which stated that Ms. Streisand had had beloved Coton de Tuléar, Samantha, cloned twice. The fact is that in using the DNA of … Read more »

When I do an interview, I like to be quoted accurately. I also expect the truth to be told, with facts checked.

This is why I’m reluctant to give interviews without having quote approval. In last week’s Variety article, they mistakenly made it sound like I didn’t want to be in Funny Girl! What??? I fought hard for that part! How could they make that mistake? I loved the character of Fanny Brice (they even misspelled her name Franny).… Read more »

Larry Kramer does not need me to publicize his beautiful play. It stands on its own. For the last time – I will answer his complaints, which rewrite history.

When I saw the play in 1985 I was very moved and immediately contacted Larry to acquire the rights. After going through several drafts with Larry, I hired another writer to develop a screenplay that was faithful to Larry’s play — but adapting it to make it more cinematic. It was … Read more »

Lift your lamp of hope a little higher
Burn that flame of freedom

For all the world to see

Show us how to stand and feel a little prouder
As the anthem plays let’s sing
And raise our voices even louder
Since the real danger lies in the sound of silence
