The poster promised “zany Barbra” and the film didn’t disappoint. When her cab driver husband Michael Sarrazin unwisely invests in pork bellies to fund his belated college education, Streisand’s Brooklyn housewife borrows money from a loan shark to pay off the investment and is forced into a series of unlikely jobs from prostitution to cattle rustling in this farce, shot by László Kovács.
