Trivia

  • This is the first Todd-AO production and the first of three such productions to be shot twice, first at 24 fps (to produce the general-release version in 35 mm) and finally at 30 fps (to produce the roadshow version in 70 mm). The 35 mm version is presented in CinemaScope; the 70 mm version is presented in Todd-AO.
  • Shot on location in and around Nogales, Arizona, because the producers thought that Arizona looked more like Oklahoma.
  • This was Fred Zinnemann's first musical, and it cost a then-astronomical $6.8 million.
  • The song "Lonely Room" (sung by Jud) was cut from the film. In the song, Jud explains his bitter resentments and deep frustrations. Possibly this was considered too strong for 1955 film-goers.
  • Based on the play Green Grow the Lilacs by Lynn Riggs, a part-Cherokee playwright born in Oklahoma.
