Harshly reviewed in the era of Easy Rider and MASH, *Hello, Dolly! just keeps improving with age and now looks like the last of the great old school Hollywood musicals. Gene Kelly proves himself a masterful director expertly juggling the pressures of a hefty studio budget, the expectations built by a legendary Broadway show and a volatile star team of Barbra Streisand and Walter Matthau who famously did not become bosom buddies. None of the off-screen tales matter as the film is a lavish, spirited spectacle with show-stopping numbers, a scene-stealing Michael Crawford as Barnaby and Louis Armstrong joining the party for a rousing rendition of the title tune. Look at the old girl now fellas!. Part of Glasgow Film Festival 2012: Gene Kelly: Strictly Song and Dance.
