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.
A magical, old-fashioned musical.
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.
Inexplicably nominated for Oscars, Gene Kelly's last musical is a big, bloated, stagy film--despite the presence, charm and voice of Barbra Streisand.
It doesn't escape the overproduction trap, not by a long shot.
Splashy Kelly production with a too-young Streisand...but she's stunning.
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.
This is the movie that established Barbra as truly incomparable.
Wonderful musical, and Barbra is the perfect fit. Matthau is just as brilliant and silly as ever.
I don't think I have ever seen a film with more, glitter, sparkles, twinkles, frills and gilded over-the-top spectacle as in Hello Dolly. Simply the most extravagent Hollywood musical I have ever had the pleasure to feast my eyes on. And that is exactly what it is a feast for the eyes, from the epically spectacular songs to the huge sets and countless extras, Dolly is impressive. It is also so very sweet so much so that it is almost bitter, everything is so pretty and colourful. But Streisand steals the show with her amazing voice that never takes a breath. This film, made in 69, is really where old hollywood ends but it goes out with a bang!
Barbra is decades too young, it would be perfect for her now, but its still fun in its gaudy overstuffed way.
My mom had a habit of dropping us kids off at the theater on Saturday afternoons so she could get in a little "me-time" while the three of us watched a movie. On this particular Saturday, we were the only three people in the theater. That could be because small-town, USA simply was uncultured and unsophisticated, or it could be that this movie sucked big giant ostrich eggs. You decide.
