One of Barbara Streisand's most beloved perfromances is that of the indomitable Dolly Levi in this hugely popular musical that received a Best Picture Academy Award nomination in 1969.
It's turn-of-the-century Yonkers, New York, where an ambitious young widow with a penchant for matchmaking (Streisand),has an idea for the perfect match - tight-fisted, local merchant Horace Vandergalder(Walter Matthau) and -herself! As she tries to win his heart, we're treated to one of the most musically entertaining, hilariously underhanded plots in film history. Directed by Gene Kelly, this Oscar winner for Best Sound, Music, Score and Art Direction/Set Decoration is among the world's most cherished films.
