Long running musical opened on Broadway #OnThisDay in 1964

Hello, Dolly!

On January 16th 1964, the musical “Hello, Dolly!” opened on Broadway beginning a run of 2,844 performances.

The show has become one of the most enduring musical theatre hits, with four Broadway revivals and international success. It was also made into the 1969 film Hello Dolly! that was nominated for seven Academy Awards, and won three.

The film clip below appears to be someone’s holiday cine-film of a trip to New York in 1966.

So a couple of years into the Hello Dolly! run.

It’s an amazing bit of film and the cinematographer certainly had an eye for a good shot.

No connection to Hello, Dolly! but a great film clip!
