And Almost Starring

Episode 58 - Yentl

July 6, 2021

This week we’re breaking down the casting of the Barbra Streisand passion project musical Yentl! Which star of erotic thrillers turned down the male lead? Which 17-year-old future Oscar-nominee auditioned for Hadass? And why did we have to have so much narrated think-singing? Also – did our subtitles cover it up, or did this film feature full frontal Patinkis?


Yentl stars Barbra Streisand, Mandy Patinkin, Amy Irving, Nehemiah Persoff, Steven Hill, Allan Corduner, Doreen Mantle, and Miriam Margolyes; directed by Barbra Streisand
