review by . January 10, 2009
It's 1890, and Dolly Levi (Barbra Streisand) is matchmaking for Horace Vandergelder (Walter Matthau), a well-to-do Yonkers businessman. Horace wants a wife, but Dolly has her eye on Horace for herself. His two naive shopclerks (Michael Crawford and Danny Locki) are along for the ride as they pay their first visit to New York City and vow to fall in love.     Forget the silly plot and the fact that Striesand is way too young for her part and Matthau is too old.  .

About this movie


A matchmaker named Dolly Levi takes a trip to Yonkers, New York to see the "well-known unmarried half-a-millionaire," Horace Vandergelder. While there, she convinces him, his two stock clerks and his niece and her beau to go to New York City. In New York, she fixes Vandergelder's clerks up with the woman Vandergelder had been courting, and her shop assistant (Dolly has designs of her own on Mr. Vandergelder, you see). Written by Randy Goldberg <goldberg@nymc.edu>

Film adaptation of the beloved Broadway musical. Concerns itself with Dolly Levi, a New York-based matchmaker who merrily arranges things... like furniture and daffodils and lives. A widow, she has found herself in love with a "half-a-millionaire" Yonkers merchant named Horace Vandergelder. So she proceeds to weave a web of romantic complications involving him, his two clerks, a pretty milliner and her assistant. Eventually, of course, all is sorted out, and everyone ends up with the right person. Written by Tommy Peter
