Description

BARBRA STREISAND shines in the bubbly romatic comedy FOR PETE'S SAKE, alongside a supporting cast that includes MICHAEL SARRAZIN, ESTELLE PARSONS...and a Brahma Bull! As Henrietta ("Henry"), Streisand is the devoted wife who will stop at nothing to put her husband Pete through school. So when Pete gets a hot tip on the stock market, Henry 'raises' the money, convincing Pete that it came from her rich Uncle...and not from the local loan shark! But when the stock's price begins to fall, Henry finds herself in hot water, trying to earn back the money before the loan shark moves in and Pete finds out. With great performances and a sharp script by Oscar winners Stanley Shapiro and Maurice Richlin, FOR PETE'S SAKE is a "boisterously funny old-time farce" featuring "Streisand at her best."
