Hello, Dolly! DVD

| DVD

Barbra Streisand is a knockout as Dolly Levi, the woman who arranges things...like furniture and daffodils and lives. The famed plot concerns Dolly, a young widow and professional matchmaker who sets her sights on conquering tight-fisted Yonkers merchant, Horace Vandergeider, beautifully played by Walter Matthau. Over $20,000,000 was spent on DOLLY and you can see and hear every penny. The painstakingly re-created streetcars, shops, skyscrapers and town itself (circa 1900), the magnificent Harmonia Gardens set, Irene Sharoff's colour splashed costumes, Jerry Herman's... hummingly tuneful direction. So, spend a magical evening with the incomparable Barbra - and see what great musicals are all about. [show more]

Musical comedy of romantic errors set in 1920s New York. Dolly Gallagher Levi (Barbra Streisand), recently widowed and living in Yonkers, New York, is something of a society matchmaker. Hired to find the perfect beau for the also just widowed millionaire Horace Vandergelder (Walther Matthau), Dolly can't help but conclude that it is she whom he should be marrying. Horace, however, has his eye on Irene Molloy (Marianne McAndrew), a pretty young thing that Dolly simply must get out of the way if her plan is to succeed. Meanwhile, two of Horace's young employees Cornelius (Michael Crawford) and Barnaby (Danny Lockin), decide to take advantage of the boss's romantic mission to the city and follow him for a glimpse of the urban high-life. Through a series of coincidences the pair have to escape being discovered by Horace, only to take refuge in Irene Molloy's hat emporium, with Cornelius immediately falling in love with the owner, and Barnaby with her assistant Minnie (E.J. Peaker). The young lovers end up at a very expensive restaurant with Dolly desperately trying to make sure that everyone ends up with the right partner, and to claim Horace for her own.
