Barbra Streisand won an Oscar for her portrayal of legendary stage comedian Fanny Brice as she breaks into show business, rises to stardom with the Ziegfeld Follies and finds heartache in her marriage to big-time gambler Nicky Arnstein, who at first finds it amusing to be referred to as "Mr. Brice," but then begins to resent his wife's fame and fortune. Streisand actually shared the Best Actress Oscar that year with "The Lion in Winter" star Katharine Hepburn.
