Barbra Streisand A Happening in Central Park ~ June 17, 1967 ~  Hello, Gorgeous!...Pristine Print of the Fourth Television Special Starring Barbra Streisand


ABOUT THE SHOW


A Happening in Central Park was performed and taped by video cameras on Saturday, June 17, 1967. The concert, sponsored by Rheingold Beer, and free to the public, was held in the Sheep Meadow section of New York City's Central Park. Barbra's television sponsor, Monsanto, captured the event on videotape for airing on CBS at a later date. Barbra took a weekend off from the filming of Funny Girl to perform the concert. On Friday night, June 16th, Barbra and crew rehearsed until very late. Director Robert Scheerer also worked out some of his camera blocking at the Friday night rehearsal. He utilized seven color video cameras to capture the concert. The actual, live concert of A Happening in Central Park lasted 2-1/2 hours. Barbra sang some 28 songs—many were edited from the final, hour-long television special.

After editing the television special, Robert Scheerer recalled, “I screened it for Barbra, and she asked for one change, one shot ... It was one shot of a Spanish lady that I didn't use, only because it was a soft focus. She loved that shot for some reason, so I said ‘Of course.’ That's the one change that I made for Barbra.”
