Barbra Streisand's miscasting in "Hello, Dolly!"

Few would argue that she was far too young to play the role of Dolly Levi when the film was made in 1969. The producers also wisely did not cast Carol Channing, who was a disaster on film. So which age appropriate musical-type actresses should have been considered, given when the film was made? Ann Miller Rita Hayworth Betty Grable Betty Hutton Ginger Rogers Cyd Charisse Vera-Ellen Nancy Walker Nanette Fabray others?
