Even if the actor-director-producer-writer combo deserves short shrift -- and I'm not saying that it does -- mention should still be made of actor-director-producer-writer Barbra Streisand, for doing award-winning movie work in multiple fields in her spare time from racking up an over-the-top level of success as, y'know, a singer.
