'Hello, Dolly!' Blu-ray Dated and Detailed

Posted Thu Feb 21, 2013 at 08:00 AM PST by

The Oscar-nominated 1969 musical will make its Blu-ray debut in April.

In an early announcement to retailers, 20th Century Fox has slated 'Hello, Dolly!' for Blu-ray on April 2.

One of Barbra Streisand's most beloved performances is that of the indomitable Dolly Levi in this hugely popular musical that received a Best Picture Academy Award Nomination in 1969. It's turn-of-the-century Yonkers, New York, where an ambitious young widow with a penchant for matchmaking (Streisand) has an idea for the perfect match --- tight-fisted, local merchant Horace Vandergelder (Walter Matthau) and...herself! As she tries to win his heart, we're treated to one of the most musically entertaining, hilariously underhanded plots in film history. Directed by Gene Kelly, this winner of three OSCARSr for Sound, Adaptation Score and Art Direction is among the world's most cherished films.

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: Directing Dolly: Gene Kelly Remembered and 1969 Featurette!

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $24.99.
