This DVD came as an addition to Barbra Streisand's 2003 CD The Movie Album. On it, Streisand performs alternate take live editions of the songs "Wild Is The Wind" and "I'm In The Mood For Love". There is also a 6.37 audio song commentary by her, excerpts from an interview she gave after a recording session one morning, reflecting on her song choices, while we see still photos of Barbra that appear on the CD jacket. The 4.42 video for "Wild Is The Wind" features inter-cut clips from the film, as well as cutaways to the orchestra. She talks before the take and add-libs amusingly when the vocal is "I hear the sound of violins" and she hears horns. The 6.37 video for "I'm In The Mood For Love" bookends the clips from Every Night At Eight, and also has cutaways to the orchestra. In both videos, Streisand is lit beautifully, and poses so that the left side of her face is featured, as is her wedding ring. We see how she holds the earphones upside down so that they do not sit on her head, and how she uses her eyes a lot when she sings. Streisand also moves out of the light dramatically for the end of the songs, though only enters for the second.
