Movie Info

There's a box social coming up, and Curly (Gordon MacRae) asks Laurey (Shirley Jones) if she'll be his date. Trouble is, Laurey thinks he's waited too long, and in a fit of pique accepts an offer from the boorish Jud (Rod Steiger) instead. Meanwhile, Laurey's friend Ado Annie (Gloria Grahame) is also torn between two men: a cowboy named Will (Gene Nelson) and a foreign peddler, Ali Hakim (Eddie Albert). Both women struggle to know their own hearts before it's too late.

  • In spite of its age and the fact that its 145-minute mass is sometimes dragging, Oklahoma! hollers itself home as a handsome piece of entertainment.

  • The wide screen used for the Todd-AO process adds production scope and visual grandeur, capturing a vista of blue sky and green prairie that can be breathtaking.

  • The film heaves and sputters from one indifferently rendered number to the next.

  • 50 years on there's still an infectious charm about Oklahoma!

  • A solid Hollywood landmark.

  • My favourite is the odd cast singing 'The Farmer and the Cowman should be friends', a sentiment I have long believed in.

    The classic western musical. First of all I don't like westerns and second I'm not a big fan of musicals (I only like certain ones). So, I didn't enjoy this movie. It's not a bad movie, I think it's good that they mixed the genres (it's also a romantic comedy), I just didn't care for it.

    One of the best films of its time. It shows how love should be.

    Not as bad as you'd think. Fred Zinnemann has a great sense of size and scope and his decision to film the majority of the movie outdoors captures the natural beauty of the landscape. The fantasy dream ballet sequence is extremely well done and at moments is very beautiful. But at the end of the day its an adaptation of Oklahoma, a musical that has not transcended its time. The horrific sexism is bad even by 1950s standards.

    Pure escapism. My favorite Rodgers & Hammerstein musical.
