Hello, Dolly! at the Rivoli Part 2

Another shot of the Rivoli during the Hello, Dolly! roadshow engagement. Looks like this is from the backside of the theater.

Hello, Dolly! at the Rivoli

I'm always on the lookout for vintage photos of movie theaters when they showed Barbra movies. This is the first time I've found a photo of the marquee of the Rivoli during the Hello, Dolly! run. From cinema treasures.

Barbra's cameo on Solid Gold

Found this "cameo" Barbra appearance on Solid Gold through It's flashes by in a millisecond when you play the video. But my "Barbra-vision" radar noticed it immediately.

I hadn't seen this shot from the premiere before.

Marilyn Michaels as Barbra

This is photo of Marilyn Michaels is imitating Barbra, at least that's what the article says. I'm guessing it's a "People" outfit.

Barbra and Andy Warhol

Found a Barbra reference at the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh- but the connection was with Halston.

The rare photo series - Part 7

Don't know the back story on this photo either. But if I put on my Barbra detective cap, I would say they were filming Funny Girl. The other woman was visiting the set? Love the white go-go boots too.

I'm guessing the CUE awards 1970.

The rare photo series - Part 1

It's hard to find "rare" photos of Barbra with everything ever photographed available on the internet, or so it seems. I'm posting some that are out there but I haven't seen published. This one looks like a window display promoting the fashions from the My Name Is Barbra TV special.

Match Your Mood - Barbra-style

Turner Movie Classics recently aired an institutional film called Match Your Mood from 1968. It's a severely out-dated mod short created by Westinghouse showing women how to improve there lives by decorating their refrigerators to match their moods. The door panels can be customized with sticker-like decorations, including this collage of movie stars.

If you missed the short, don't worry- it's on YouTube. Look under Match Your Mood.

Barbra in Orlando - Part 5

One of the autographs for sale in the store. I'm always suspicious of bogus Barbra autographs, even in the land of Disney. Not that they would knowingly sell phony signatures- there's just no way to be sure- unless you get the autograph in person!

Barbra in Orlando - Part 4

The AFI Museum also had a scrolling list of the 100 favorite comedies of all time. What's Up, Doc? came in at #61! To make matters worse, no mention of For Pete's Sake or The Main Event!

Barbra in Orlando - Part 2

At the Disney Movie Studio park in Orlando, there is a back lot tram ride. After you get off, you walk through a gift store/ museum. I believe the museum is sponsored by the AFI. One wall is full of the Life Achievement Award recipients. Of course I spotted Barbra's picture a mile away.

Barbra in Orlando

This is the closest you will probably get to see Barbra perform in Orlando, Florida.

Meet the Fockers at the Drive-in

For one of my screenings of Meet the Fockers, I did see it at a drive-in. It was at the Swap Shop in Fort Lauderdale (not the drive-in in this photo). The Swap Shop is better known for it's flea market than screening movies. The movie was projected onto the side on a building! It was towards the end of it's run in theaters. It wasn't an experience I would look forward to again.

Hello, Dolly! in 70mm

A few years ago, a new 70mm print was struck of Hello, Dolly! There is a big legion of 70mm fans out there, along with Hello, Dolly! fans (me being a fan of both). A huge line formed down the block for the screening.

AFI Lifetime Achievement Award - Part 3

This picture was after the event when everyone was leaving. You may be wondering where are the pictures during the show. With great restraint I didn't photograph during the event! We were told no photography allowed. I cheated a little before and after the event. Keep in mind this was back in 2001, before the era of smart phones. Now-a-days, everyone would have their iphone out taking pictures non-stop. This event was during the pre-smart phone era.
