NEW YORK (AP) - Barbra Streisand has been honored for her film career with the 40th annual Chaplin Award from the Film Society of Lincoln Center.

Friends and fans celebrated the legend of song and screen at Lincoln Center Monday, where highlights of her films were screened.

She says as a young child what she wanted most was to be an actress. But nobody really wanted "a 15-year-old Medea," she says. "Thank God I was given a good voice."

Among those saluting Streisand were former president Bill Clinton, Liza Minnelli and Tony Bennett. The awards gala raised $2 million for the film society.

Streisand, who turns 71 this week, is one of the few entertainers to have won Oscar, Emmy, Grammy and Tony awards.
