I am so distressed to read of this "Hello Dolly!" bashing. Sry, this is one of my fav. musicals. Carol Channing's voice is the most annoying thing I have heard (except in "Thoroughly Modern Millie" cause she fit that part). Streisand was young but it in no way detracted from the picture for me. Her voice had the power that no one else could bring to the table. And the dancing scenes are classic- it was the goodbye to an era of awesome musicals where dancing was not dirty and singing was beautiful. That's just the opinion of me though- a youngin' who doesn't know anything I guess.
