      I really get a kick out of For Pete’s Sake, a 1974 movie with Barbra Streisand and Michael Sarrazin. They play a newly married couple just making it from day to day. Pete (Sarrazin) drives a taxi, while Heniretta (Streisand) tends to their apartment and acts essentially as a telemarketer. Then Pete gets a tip on a

      stock deal for pork bellies. It’s a marvelous opportunity, but they don’t have the money. After trying everything they can, Heniretta comes up with a way to get the money. She borrows from a loan shark without telling her husband.

      That’s where the real fun sets in. As she struggles to work off and pay back the loan,


      • Heniretta’s contract keeps getting sold, upping the amount she owes and putting her in the middle of all kinds of hysterical situations.

        For Pete’s Sake is pure comedy. Streisand’s facial expressions and vocal intonations are perfect as she responds to what happens to her. It’s really funny, and poor Pete is clueless. Sarrazin does a great job here,

        too. He kept up with the very talented Streisand, and that’s not always easy to do.

        Molly Picon has a minor role as Mrs. Cherry, and she is priceless! She makes this movie and almost steals it she’s so good. I love her scenes.

        For Pete’s Sake is a fun, very watchable movie. I like to view it often.
