Product Description

Amazon.ca

They just don't make musicals like this any more. There are some who would be grateful for that--the plot is but a flimsy excuse to string together song and dance numbers. Some of us, however, love big, splashy, overdone musical scenes, of which there are many. Glittering stage numbers showcase a commanding Barbra Streisand as Dolly Levy, a New York matchmaker who can find a mate for anyone. Anyone but herself, that is. Determined to marry wealthy Walter Matthau, she lures him out of Yonkers and sets about wooing him.

Don't worry about the lack of a solid story or Gene Kelly's pedestrian direction. Watch instead for the musical numbers and the lavish costumes. Listen to Jerry Herman's score, and dance around the living room when a sequined Streisand arrives in a club as Louis Armstrong strikes up the title tune for her benefit. (Just pull the shades first.) Based on Thornton Wilder's play The Matchmaker, Hello, Dolly! won Academy Awards for best sound, art direction, and musical score. --Rochelle O'Gorman

Product Description

Barbara Streisand is a knockout as Dolly Levi, the woman "who arranges things like furniture and daffodils and lives." And Hello Dolly, is the blockbuster musical you'll want to see her in again and again. The famed plot concerns Dolly, a young widow and professional matchmaker who sets her sights, and whatever else she can muster, on conquering tight-fisted Yonkers merchant, Horace Vandergeider, beautifully played by Walter Matthau. How she does it has to be the grandest, singingest, dancingest, marchingest flag-wavingest musical there ever was.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Hello, Dolly!" July 1 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Mrs. Dolly Levi is inarguably the most endearing film character I have ever encountered. She is beautiful, fashionable, clever, and humorous. One cannot help but wish that Dolly actually existed. Indoubtedly, I cannot imagine anyone other than Barbra Streisand playing the part of Dolly. Her stunning voice and captivating performance make "Hello, Dolly!" a truly wonderful movie.
Besides Streisand's amazing performance, this movie includes some wonderful songs and exciting dancing scenes. However, the dancing scenes do become a bit tedious and long.
What is "Hello, Dolly!" all about? It is the story of a widow who arranges an unimaginable amount of events and places. She assists a couple's elopement, two friends' trip to New York City, and a bored man's romance.
This film features other loveable characters, too, such as a head waiter in a posh restaurant, an orchestra conductor at the same restaurant, and a hatmaker who desires to be "evil."
I would highly recommend this romantic comedy to anyone. Although the dance and song scenes are too long, watch the complete movie. Streisand's performance is extremely wonderful and endearing.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Must for Barbra Fans July 20 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I am a big Streisand fan, but this has never been one of my favourite movies. However, even though she is way too young for the role, Barbra is the one thing that makes it worthwhile. When she is singing then the film is great. When the other characters are on screen, it is pretty inane. It is also interesting as an example of how Hollywood went berserk in the late 60's trying to have another hit on the level of The Sound of Music. The parade scene stands out as an example of the motto "bigger is better". It literally involved thousands of extras. In fact, I believe no film shot in Hollywood since then has used as many extras. (Now you can create a crowd through CGI). The quality of the video is very good, having been shot in TODD-AO. Some shots simply sparkle, especially Barbra's gold dress in the title number. The sound is also a big step up from the DVD, so if you have a good sound system that alone would make it a worthwhile upgrade. If you love Babs, then buy the movie. If you are wondering if the quality is a good enough reason to upgrade from the DVD, it certainly is. The joy of Blu-ray (or DVD) is that you can just skip from one musical number to the next and cut out all the other dross in between.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hello Dolly Jan. 10 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Barbra Streisand and Walter Matthau are a perfect pairing in this great show.
Some musicals can get bogged down, but this clips along at a great pace, and the entire ensemble add the perfect touch.
Can't imagine anyone else playing the parts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Grandson lessons June 12 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this movie because 1. I love it. 2. the song my grandson loves on Wall-e the movie with the little robot. He told me about this movie that the little robot watches and i told him i knew it long before he was born. He was so funny about it, saying that no its from the wall-e movie. So we watched it together. to be honest he didn't sit thru it all but I certainly did.
