Product Description

Daisy Gamble (Streisand) asks a college professor (Montand) to help her quit smoking through hypnosis. Under hypnosis she reveals t hat she has lived as several different women in past lives, one of whom the professor falls in love with.

From Amazon.co.uk

When a psychiatrist (Yves Montand) begins talking to a young woman (Barbra Streisand), he realizes that she can recall a past life while under hypnosis. Although this brash New Yorker is thoroughly modern and somewhat abrasive, he becomes fascinated by the 19th-century English woman who speaks through her. This oddball musical flicks back and forth between period flashbacks and modern times, which may be one reason it never builds up much power in either realm. On a Clear Day You Can See Forever failed at the box office in 1970, one of a number of glossy musicals that could not find an audience in the post-Easy Rider movie world. In fact, one of the film's out-of-place costars is Jack Nicholson, a symbol of the new movies that were making old-fashioned musicals a thing of the past. It didn't help that Paramount severely cut On a Clear Day before releasing it. For all that, the picture is enjoyable and--at the end--really quite touching. Director Vincente Minnelli (Meet Me in St. Louis), then near the close of a fabulous career, maintains his usual careful eye for colour and design, and keeps Streisand relatively restrained--for Streisand, that is. --Robert Horton --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: VHS Tape
On A Clear Day is a brilliant mixture of a gripping storyline, fascinating characters and marvelous actors . The story is about Daisy Gamble , played by the magnificent Barbara Streisand , a cigarette addict who goes to a hypnotist , played by Yves Montande , in order to stop smoking . She couldn't have possibly known that by going to the hypnotist her life would forever be changed . By coincidence , the hypnotist discovers that within Daisy Gamble lies Melinda , one of the past lives of daisy Gamble . Daisy and Melinda possess psychic powers , the only difference is that Melinda's powers are much more advanced then Daisy's . Throughout the movie there are fabulous songs . One of the things I found most enjoyable is the huge difference between Melinda , who is a charismatic and elegant woman , and Daisy who has no personality . To conclude , brilliant performances ( by Barbra Streisand , Yves Montande and Jack Nicholson ) and a gripping storyline . In short a movie YOU WILL NEVER FORGET.

This is my favorite Barbra movie and, because of the topic, one of my favorite movies of all time. What gets left out of most reviews is that it is a fun romp through the subject of reincarnation. As such, it has some witty and contemporary (for the year it was made, 1970) dialogue about the subject and plot twists that reincarnation might generate. That being said, it has some incredibly lovely songs by Ms. Streisand, the most fun being "Go To Sleep". That song wins my vote because it shows Babs on a split screen so she ends up singing a trio with herself as the two backup singers. What's better than two Babs? Three! I also love "The Banquet Of Love" and find myself singing it while I am cooking. Yes, even today; 38 years later. It is a lovely song. And, since my sister in law is named Melinda, I of course sing that song to her from time to time before she shouts at me to clam up.

Barbra jumps so effortlessly from the mousy Daisy Gamble to the lovely Winnifred Wain Tentrees, stopping off as a guttersnipe waif, that you gladly acknowledge her claim to be `an actress who sings'. Winnifred, unlike Fanny Brice, is a stunning, classic beauty and the scene in which Barbra sings the Banquet song is Barbra at her most stunning ever. Every book about her has the shot of her in that pearl studded headdress for good reason. She is just plain old beautiful.

Another hot song in this show is "What Did I Have That I Don't Have Now". I memorized this song from the Broadway run of this show, and sang it in my nightclub act. I loved the song and loved how it could be done as a torch song or as an upbeat sort of anthem. Barbra manages both, thank you very much, and does so beautifully.

There are shortcomings to this show.

Format: DVD
This film was directed by the dame great director of "The Reluctant Debutante" and "Gigi" Vincente Minnelli Born: 28 February 1903, Died: 25 July 1986 (aged 83).

As with many films the story suffers a little form the lack of spontaneity of the Broadway version, yet it holds the essence and was not modified too much for the actors or media type. Some great songs arise from this play adapted to film.

Daisy Gamble (Barbra Streisand) seems extraordinary in such abilities as raising flowers that are unraisable and hearing telephones before they ring. However she needs to stop smoking and turns to hypnosis to help.

Dr. Marc Chabot (Yves Montand) in an attempt to help her discovers a whole new woman and falls in love with this other woman. However the woman is the results of Daisy's regression.

This poses a difficulty. Especially if Daisy finds out.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Vincente Minnelli's On a Clear Day You Can See Forever is an enjoyable minor musical with major production values, but no lost classic. With the exception of the title number and He's Not You, none of the songs, used almost entirely for emotional moments rather than to progress the plot, are likely to trouble the memory. Yves Montand is amiably professional, but there are no sparks between him and Barbra Streisand and too few jokes for that not to leave the film feeling somewhat underpowered. Bob Newhart is wasted, Jack Nicholson's part has almost entirely been cut along with several songs and several reels in a vain attempt to prevent it from being another of the big-budget flops that nearly brought Paramount to its knees until Love Story and The Godfather came to its aid. Many of the credited cast can only be glimpsed by the eagle-eyed using the zoom facility on their DVD players. It may also be the only film where John Richardson uses his own voice. The Clive Owen of his day and the bookies' favorite to replace Sean Connery as James Bond, he was usually either dubbed by David De Keyser or given parts without dialogue, and it's easy to see why from his terrible delivery and awkward working class accent (he's playing an aristocrat). Still, there is a great use of vivid color and some impressive design.

No extras of any kind on the DVD, but the widescreen 2.35:1 transfer is good.

On a Clear Day You Can See Forever - the movie

This was originally a Broadway show that transferred, virtually intact, to the screen. The stars of the screen version were Barbra Streisand (as Daisy Gamble from Brooklyn, who is trying to quit smoking) and Yves Montand as the psychiatrist who is using hypnosis to this end. However, when Daisy is under hypnosis she experiences past-life regression and becomes an 18th century aristocratic beauty. It's an interesting plot with the book and lyrics for the show and film by Alan Jay Lerner, a keen enthusiast of all things psychic. The tunes were written by Burton Lane. The title song and `Come back to me' were the only memorable numbers, though there were several others in the score. On screen, the opening number, `Hurry, It's Lovely up here', where Daisy charms the bulbs to spring into life, is delightful, but the song is not memorable enough to have any life outside the film. Despite assistance from Bob Newhart and Jack Nicholson, and the direction of Vincente Minnelli, this was not a successful film for either the tunes or the script, and it seemed to lose momentum at various points. It's already more than two hours long: was it brutally edited in the cutting room too, I wonder?
