    Shirley Jones is going to be featured as a star of the Month this August 2013, why is it that you are playing the same old movies seen last month with her? You have not shown Oklahoma for ages. In fact the last time I remember you showing was over 2 years ago and I missed it. I would love to review this show, if only you would actually show it.

    With Fred Zinneman at the directorial helm, the camera is used ingeniously and at times quite lyrically in this adaptation of the Rodgers & Hammerstein classic stage musical. People complain about the location shooting in Nogales, AZ with small mountains in the distance, given that the state of OK is as flat as a pancake, but, it's an absolutely beautiful scenic area and this beauty adds much to the fim. It's fiction, an updated fairy tale in a way, so, I don't care about documentary-like fidelity. Gordon MacRae is wonderful in every way, especially using his wonderful baritone to pour emotion into the songs. The "Kansas City" song scene is fantastic with camera following Nelson as he jumps on the train-no stuntman!train the train

  • Rod Steiger...

    provides all of the menace, conflict and sexual tension any film needs, but he makes this film especially three dimensional, much more than a filmed movie musical by the great Rogers and Hammerstein. He is angry and brutal enough to poison a whole family because the daughter spurned his attentions, as he describes to Curly in the "Poor Jud" song. Steiger is good-looking enough so that Laurey could be somewhat drawn to him, but he is also violent enough to repulse her and the audience. The film wouldn't be nearly as good without him.

  • Mountains in "Oklahoma"?

    I was wondering if "Oklahoma" was re-shot today, and they still had to use Nogales, Arizona, as the filming site, would modern movie magic be able to remove the mountain ranges from the background? As anyone knows, Oklahoma is grand, but there just ain't no mountains there.

  • Oh, What a Beautiful Voice

    Truly, the late Gordon MacRae had one of the best baritone voices of all time. He sang effortlessly; a God-given talent. He and Shirley Jones were perfectly matched in this movie. How unfortunate that he died so young in life. Oklahoma! is a joy to watch. A great cast. And speaking of casting, how about Rod Steiger in the role of Judd Fry? He turns in a thoroughly believable performance (and he even sang well). The Agnes DeMille dance numbers are fantastic. My advice: Take a trip to "Oklahoma!" it's well worth it.

  • Does it get any better?

    What could be better than this? Gordon McRae in glorious voice, a fantastic score, unforgettable choreography, including a ballet by Agnes DeMille, and a radiant Shirley Jones!!
