Oklahoma! Yeowee!


Recommended Posts

I recently watched the showing of Oklahoma!. I haven't watched it in years and I must say it was really wonderful and worth seeing again. The vivid technicolor, the music and great ballet squences were a treat. Included are the wonderful performances by the cast; Gordon Macrae, Shirley Jones, Charlotte Greenwood, Rod Steiger and Eddy Albert. When Oklahoma repeats please watch it if you haven't done so recently.

I'm assuming you're referring to the Cinemascope version of the film - the more widely screened version at the time of the film's general release. If you haven't seen it, you should also watch the Todd A-0 version as it contains alternative takes and restaging of many of the dance sequences. The currently available DVD from Fox Home Video contains both versions, although the Todd A-0's color is a bit off.

 

This is a curiosity since I own the laserdisc released by Fox in the mid-1990s that has been lovingly restored with eye popping color and marked improvements in fine detail and clarity for which the Todd A-0 American Optical large format film stock was justly famous.
