Atom User Reviews for Hello, Dolly! 50th Anniversary (1969) presented by TCM
They just don’t make them like that anymore!!! Very fun!!!
So much better on the big screen! Loved it!
I've seen it over 100 times. forgot how grand the big screen is
I’ve always loved Barbra Streisand, and I now have more reason to love her! “Hello Dolly” was great fun! Just enough hilarity, humor, emotion, and dancing gaiety! Don’t know why I’d never seen it before. Now I’ll have to watch it over and over again!
Great on the big screen! Look for Michael Crawford, 20 years before he became Phantom of the Opera!
What a wonderful musical!! So much fun to see on the big screen.
This was one of the last big production musicals. Babs and Walter were excellent, as usual. Fantastic on the big screen. Noticed the asphalt leading up to the church in the wedding scene. Lol
What an incredibly beautiful film! The cast was outstanding and Barbra Streisand was just perfect in acting & voice! Hope they release ON A CLEAR DAY back onto the screens in 2020!
Streisand was awesome! The score and choreography were over the top! I had never seen on the big screen before.
Fantastic on the BIG screen!!!
Dolly lost a fortune and helped to all but kill the genre, yet this famed musical adaptation of Thornton Wilder's The Matchmaker is more fun than its rep indicates. [15 Nov 2005, p.8D]
The choreography, the performances, the set decoration, the dialogue, everything about Hello, Dolly! is played directly to the back row of the theater, which would be fine on the stage, but on anamorphic widescreen close-ups tends to be more frightening than mirthful.
By the time Streisand takes over the entire movie with the title number, in which the massive waitstaff of an upscale restaurant gathers to sing and dance her praises, I couldn’t help but wonder what all the fuss was about.
