Barbra is the "top-billed act" in this affectionate tribute to turn of the century vaudeville. No detail was too small for this lovingly created world of a bygone era. Her first television special to feature guest-stars, "The Belle of 14th Street" celebrates in ways both comedic and heartfelt, "The Golden Age of Song". A marvelous showcase for such evergreens as Sophie Tucker's "Some Of These Days," "How About Me" (written by "a new young talent" Irving Berlin), the poignant "I'm Always Chasing Rainbows," and the sublime "My Buddy" - all classics of the vaudeville era, reinvented by the "greatest star" of our time.
This 1967 television special is jam-packed with guest stars and features Barbra paying tribute to the bygone era of vaudeville. Re-creating the music of the turn of the century, Barbra delivers three acts of well-known tracks including "My Melancholy Baby," "Everybody Loves My Baby," and many more.
