favorite musicals {Hello, Dolly!}

This musical was discovered while watching Wall-E.
The song at the beginning? Put On Your Sunday Clothes.
The movie that Wall-E watches and tries to recreate?
Hello, Dolly!

So we tracked it down and watched it. :)


I personally love this movie.
Barbra Streisand is just brilliant, and I love Dolly Levi.
There are so many funny lines:

"Barnaby, you're going to have a mistress!"
{in reference to his search for a wife}
"But I'm too young, Mr. Vandergelder!"

Louis Armstrong makes an appearance, and he's a favorite of mine.
The music is fabulous.

(Some of my family didn't like it as much as I did, though.)

Hello, Dolly! 1969
starring: Barbra Streisand, Walter Matthau
favorite songs: Just Leave Everything To Me, Put On Your Sunday Clothes, It Only Take a Moment, So Long, Dearie

Have you seen Hello, Dolly!? What did you think?

Happy Wednesday!

Oh how I love that moment in Wall-E when he puts on his "top hat" and dances along. Now I will probably have to watch Hello Dolly.
