From Broadway to Hollywood


Recommended Posts

The clues do not fit.. There's got to be a best picture oscar winner, and two actors both nominated for their performance in that picture. Get that one, and work your way back to the Broadway play. You could also try to figure out Best Actor Oscar winners, and work your way back to early starring roles in film.

"South Pacific" had been a big hit on Broadway starting with it's debut on 1949. When the movie version was to be made, the original Broadway leads did not appear in the film. Mary Martin was considered to be too old, and Ezio Pinza had passed away. The roles were given to Mitzi Gaynor and Rosanno Brazzi. They were not the original choices, but because of contractual obligations to other studios, the original choices could not make time in their schedules for this film. Who were the original choices for the roles of Nellie and Emile?
