That was a Scaasi? I thought it was a Charles Schulz!
More than a shame, it's a downright "puzzlement" as to how they would have been thrown away at as late a date as 1970. These were STREISAND numbers directed by Vincente Minnelli that NO ONE thought they might be able to use at a later date for any reason? It never made any sense to me as they were basically discarded at the 11th hour and what...burned??? It seems either vindictive or they actually do exist somewhere and no one has come across them as of yet.
the Schulz is more understated!
My... NAME... is... Snoopy... Tentrees!!!
Totally agree! Channing is amazing live. I saw the 1978 Broadway revival of Dolly during my high school spring break and sat first row center balcony. I felt she was looking me directly in the eye during her entire performance. It was an incredible experience and that was a pretty incredible trip as I look back on it. On that same trip I saw, The Act starring Liza Minnelli, Yul Brynner in the revival of The King and I and the original production of On the Twentieth Century with Madeline Kahn before she departed the show.
Wow---that was some trip!!!! You were really lucky to see four iconic and legendary performers like that. I envy you.
I attended the 70MM screening of the film at the Billy Wilder theater in LA last month. The print was beautiful - it didn't have the blown out whites of the blu-ray and the sky was blue. Some of you should have gone - it was quite an experience and you would know what you're missing
Now please, since none of you were there, don't tell what what I saw and didn't see - which is the main reason I hardly ever come to this site anymore
This must have been the same 70mm/DTS print I saw in Bradford and it was fab on the Cinerama screen.
I believe you and I think it may have been the same print that I saw some years ago.
It is a fact that the Blu-ray looks very different from the print I saw and that print had been produced completely in the analog realm so it is in my opinion a better representative of what Hello, Dolly! would have looked like when it was released for the first time in 70mm.
"Clear Day" producer Howard W. Koch had a search for the footage done in 1994. He wanted to use the "Who is There Among Us.." song at the AFI tribute to Jack Nicholson. Koch asked Streisand and Minnelli's widow if they had the cut footage but neither did. Koch felt that if the film still existed it was probably in a mislabeled film canister.
I was there, too, and I saw it again in Washington, D.C. the following year. Now if only it would come to Northern California again.
I so wanted to go to the UCLA screening last month. Grrrr.
It turns out Will was right: it was much closer to 20 minutes than 60, and as a matter of fact, there was a 143-minute answer print screened for critics.
I saw Hello Dolly! Three weeks in a row in 70MM at the New Theatre downtown Baltimore,Md. If the Blu-Ray doesn't look as close to the 70mm I saw it is very close. I am completely satisfied with it. Not that I wouldn't buy the 4k Ultra Blu-Ray! The New was torned down in 2014. I wonder if they removed the DP 70-35 projector? They seem to be a hot item in Europe. Saw it during it's RoadShow in 1969. Tidbit Barbara S. was knocked down twice trying to enter for the world premier in NY city, and she said will never go to a premier again.
Somewhat Goofy, I would imagine.
It was April 12, 2013 when RAH wrote this above quote in "A Few Words About..."Hello, Dolly! -- in Blu-ray".
The future is here. I sure do hope that we are getting closer to seeing its release on a 4K/UHD disc.
Yes, since I finally have a 4k HDR tv, I'd like to see it this way.
I was thinking more along the lines of Condorman.
Matt Howe, who sometimes posts here as Babsdude, wrote extensively about what was cut from Clear Day on his website Barbra Archives.
On a Clear Day...you can cut forever.
