It is a work of great entertainment, a product of an era when people looked up at a screen and saw movies instead of cinema.

For all its failures in other areas - a bloated, heavy farce, or a character comedy full of generally tedious cartoons - its abysmal shortcomings as a musical are the saddest.

Inexplicably nominated for Oscars, Gene Kelly's last musical is a big, bloated, stagy film--despite the presence, charm and voice of Barbra Streisand.

More infamous for bringing Fox financially to its knees than for being the last major musical directed by Gene Kelly, Dolly! is one big-assed bull in a china shop.

Hello, Dolly! is one of those films from the late sixties that helped nail down the coffin lid on musicals.

Kelly managed to turn out a film that combined the worst elements of canned theater with the sillier excesses of the musical film.
