* AmbiguouslyJewish: Dolly Levi is an interesting case, as she is played by Barbra Streisand in the film, and the character in the play is presumably Irish-American (her maiden name is Gallagher) and intermarried, but in both cases speaks with a "Yiddish" rhythm and is a good fit for the stereotypical matchmaker of Jewish humor (compare her with Yente of ''FiddlerOnTheRoof'').

Added DiffLines:

* ControlFreak: Dolly, by her own admission.
* DatingWhatDaddyHates: Horace Vandergelder is a SelfMadeMan who believes the only way to make a living is to "sell things people need," and Ambrose is a painter, something he finds frivolous and useless. Naturally, Ermengarde wants to marry Ambrose.
* {{Determinator}}: Dolly Levi is going to marry Horace Vandergelder and nothing is going to stop her!
* DumbBlonde: In the film, Minnie is portrayed as a blonde to Irene's brunette, and Irene comes across as much more silly and ditzy.


Added DiffLines:

* GoldDigger: In the film, Irene and Minnie pretend to be this in order to tease Cornelius and Barnaby about pretending to be wealthy. When Cornelius finally fesses up, they admit that they knew all along, and planned to pay for the fancy dinner they weaseled out of them from the start.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Hypocrite}}: Right after denying his niece the choice to marry who she wants, Horace Vandergelde intends to head into town to propose to a lady of his own choosing.


Added DiffLines:

* SelfMadeMan: Horace Vandergelder.


Added DiffLines:

* WidowWoman: Dolly Levi, whose lingering connections, friendships, and independent income from her marriage to her late husband puts her in an interesting place in society.

In 1969 it became TheMovie starring Barbra Streisand as Dolly, becoming one of her best-known roles. Modern audiences, however, will probably recognize footage from the movie due to its [[RevivalByCommercialization use]] in the Creator/{{Pixar}} film ''WesternAnimation/WallE''.

''WesternAnimation/WallE''. This movie is notable for being the first major motion picture to see release on the [[UsefulNotes/{{VCR}} VHS]] format.

This famous 1964 [[TheMusical musical]], adapted from a Thornton Wilder play. ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Matchmaker The Matchmaker]]'' (itself based on an Austrian play, ''Einen Jux will er sich machen'', which was in turn based on an earlier English play, ''A Day Well-spent'') tells the tale of matchmaker and zany manipulator Dolly Levi (originally played by Carol Channing on Broadway). It's the turn of the 20th century in New York City, and after years of making matches for others she's out to make one for herself with the above-mentioned merchant Horace Vandergelder. In the process of doing so, she helps three other couples get together.

* CutSong: "Penny in My Pocket," the original Act One closing number, sung by Horace; when Jerry Herman realized audiences cared more for Dolly than Horace at that point in the story, he replaced it with "Before the Parade Passes By."
