Trivia / Hello, Dolly!

  • Cut Song: "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."
  • Throw It In: An alternate take of Dolly running off to the parade, in which Barbra Streisand holds onto her hat to keep it from falling off, made it into the 35mm prints, and the home video releases sourced from them. The 70mm prints, and the home video releases sourced from the 70mm negative, instead show Dolly holding onto her dress.
  • What Could Have Been: An A&E Biography revealed a screen test where Ann-Margret could've played Irene.
