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.
The life of Fanny Brice, famed comedienne and entertainer of the early 1900s. We see her rise to fame as a Ziegfeld girl, subsequent career, and her personal life, particularly her relationship with Nick Arnstein.
There was a whole pack of these musical-comedy-variety shows, airing some of the best new and old talent in the US. But you'd never know it from what makes it to the cable TV rerun channels. These shows had chorus lines, with go-go dancers in flattering costumes, and for that they are unacceptable to today's audiences. And Dean Martin's girls were always the cutest. This show was a lot of fun to watch, and it's a real pity it's unavailable today.
