Barbra: With One More Look At You (1977)
Comprised of concert footage filmed at Arizona's Sun Devil Stadium, Grady Gammage auditorium at Arizona State University, scenes from the film, and interviews, this hour-long television special publicized Barbra's new movie, A Star Is Born.
Separated into five acts, the special examined one of the Star is Born songs in each act.
Fans were treated to studio footage showing Barbra experimenting with different arrangements for the songs. The heavily edited, alternate version of the last song, “Watch Closely Now,” was shown on the special (as opposed to the one-take version that ended up in the final film).
Kris Kristofferson, Jon Peters, Barbra, and Phil Ramone were all interviewed for the TV show on camera.
The best part of the whole special was seeing Barbra, in glorious voice, entertaining the masses at Sun Devil Stadium.
