I am still waiting for that blue police box to take me on a star trek to a galaxy far, far away. Until then I will have to content myself with fantasy and sci-fi adventures from books, movies, and TV shows.

The romantic-comedy musical Hello, Dolly (1969) starring Barbra Streisand and Walter Matthau returns to theaters on August 11 and 14 as part of Turner Classic Movies TCM Big Screen Classics in celebration of the movie’s 50th anniversary.

The movie is based on a Broadway play, and was directed by Gene Kelly and written and produced by Ernest Lehman. Louis Armstrong’s recording of the title song became a #1 hit.

The movie tells the story of matchmaker Dolly Levi, who comes to New York and while arranging matches for others sets her sights on curmudgeonly Horace Vandergelder.

The movie was nominated for 7 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, and won 3 (Best Art Direction, Music Score, and Sound). The movie was also nominated for a number of British Academy Film Awards and Golden Globes.

In 1978, Hello, Dolly became one of the first films released on Betamax and VHS home video. Some scenes from the movie appear in the Disney-Pixar movie WALL-E, when the title character finds an old Betamax. The songs “Elegance” and “Put on Your Sunday Clothes” can be heard on Main Street in the Magic Kingdom of Walt Disney World. “Before the Parade Passes By” can be heard in Disneyland.
