||Synopsis: It's 1884 in Yonkers, New York. Dolly Gallagher-Levi is a Jane-of-all-Trades, but her latest and most lucrative venture is as a matchmaker, setting men up with women with the intention of matrimony. This job is ironic as she was previously married herself, not enjoying the experience. Her latest client is older penny-pinching retail store owner, Horace Vandergelder, who works his two young meek clerks, Cornelius Hackl and Barnaby Tucker, to the bone. As Horace won't give them a day off, Cornelius and Barnaby plot to close the store and sneak into New York for the day, their mission to meet and kiss a girl. In New York, Cornelius spots Irene Molloy, a young female milliner upon who he sets his sights. On their meeting, Cornelius is unaware that she is also one of Horace's possible brides. Beyond what happens between Horace, Cornelius and Irene, Dolly herself may be ready for matrimony again despite her words to the contrary. Written by Huggo

After a lifetime of arranging couplings for others Dolly Levi has
decided it's time that she settle down with somebody. Her target in her
sights is merchant Horace Vandergelder in turn of the last century
Yonkers, New York. Of course Horace the old goat is looking at young
Irene Molloy. What to do, especially since his young clerk Cornelius
Hackl has eyes for her also.
Shirley Booth who originated many parts on the Broadway stage, but had
few screen credits up to that time takes over the role that Ruth Gordon
played on stage in the 1955-1957 season for 481 performances. Another
Shirley named MacLaine with few screen credits at that point to her
name plays young Irene.
And the object of all this fuss is potbellied old Paul Ford giving one
of his patented bellowing performances. It was interesting to read how
Ford had come to the acting profession rather late in life. He
certainly is ham enough that you wonder why didn't do this all of his
life. Ford had just completed a four year run as the harried and
harassed Colonel Hall, object of many of Sergeant Bilko's con games in
the Phil Silvers Show. For most of his career Ford was a blusterer
whether here or in The Music Man or Never Too Late. He looked a lot
like Edgar Kennedy, but his boiling point was always quickly reached.
Anthony Perkins who really did other things besides Norman Bates in
Psycho is just fine as the wistful young clerk at Ford's mercantile and
he's partnered in his adventures by young Robert Morse who repeated his
stage role as Barnaby Tucker.
Of course most know The Matchmaker as the basis for Hello Dolly and
seeing it now is like seeing Shaw's Pygmalion which for better or worse
is now known as My Fair Lady without the songs. Still The Matchmaker is
fun to watch for the nostalgically inclined.
