Matchmaker Dolly Levi travels to Yonkers to find a partner for "half-a-millionaire" Horace Vandergelder, convincing his niece, his niece's intended, and his two clerks to travel to New York City along the way.
Barbra Streisand's gold-beaded gown in the Harmonia Gardens scene weighed 40 pounds, and cost $8,000. The original design included a 2-1/2-foot train, which was removed after she and other dancers tripped over it during rehearsals. The train is visible when Streisand starts down the stairs, then disappears.
After Horace leaves for New York, Dolly is wandering around in the store. Just before she walks out of the door, she slings her purse over her right shoulder and holds it with her right hand, but when the angle cuts to her coming out of the door, she is holding her purse with both hands down in front of her.
There are two alternate takes during the number Before The Parade Passes By. They occur as Dolly Levi (played by Barbra Streisand) is running down the garden path to see the parade and is singing the line "Before the Parade Passes by".In the 35mm prints which were sent to movie theaters after the roadshow engagements, Dolly almost loses her hat while running. This was used for the home video version. The 70mm prints have a different take, in which Dolly did not have any hat problems. This was used for the DVD version.
