The track is only 12 minutes long. Streisand hasn’t much to say. Her recollections are fragmentary. She didn’t get the plot of the movie. This track is not worth to listen. Two out of ten.
Commentary 2: Director Peter Bogdanovich Rating:7.9/10 (8 votes) [graph]Login to vote or review

My favorite commentary on any dvd.
It was more enjoyable to listen to Peter than to watch the movie. Really interesting stories on Cary Grant.

The very best and the very worst commentaries I have ever heard.

Bogdonovich is fascinating and Streisand is funny if you have a snarky turn of mind. (She cannot remember the story of the film and spends more time talking about her stretch satin pants than any other element in the film.

Bogdanovich is good as always. He talks about the script, the actors, the stunt people, shooting in San Francisco und many other interesting topics. Great are his stories about Cary Grant and Howard Hawks. There are no gaps on the track. He speaks very vivid. He recalls a lot of the details.

One point is the timing in comedy and how this is important for the pacing. This is a perfect track. Don’t miss it!! Ten out of ten.
