“Such a special moment in my career,” Streisand wrote. “She was incredible. Totally unique. Just been reminded this aired 56 years ago today on CBS.”
The collaboration between the two stars took place during episode 9 of The Judy Garland Show, which was taped on Oct. 4, 1963, and then broadcast by CBS two days later.
The one-of-a-kind performance, which at the time featured Streisand as a young rising star who had just released her first album, was a perfect mix of the two hit songs, allowing for each singer’s showstopping vocals to be put on display. This duet paved the way for Streisand to receive her first Emmy nomination, for outstanding performance in a variety or musical program or series, in 1964.
