Rodgers & Hammerstein

Recommended Posts

Sue2, they filmed OKLAHOMA! twice. Once in 70MM Todd-A0, and once in 35MM Cinemascope. Two different takes. Some of the scenes have different set-ups, and they have slightly different orchestrations, due to the enhanced stereophonic soundtrack of the Todd-AO print. Unfortunately, the Todd-AO print has apparently deteriorated over the years. The finest home video version of the Todd-AO print, is the laserdisc. The latest DVD release includes both versions; but the Cinemascope version looks better. Of course, it shouldn't. Todd-AO was a much better film process.

I thought Gloria Grahame was excellent in her secondary role, and it made me

wish she had done more comedies.


Yes, me too. I know that at the time, it was sort of a big deal that she was doing that role, because it was "so different" for her. But, frankly, I think she's just as good at comedy (perhaps better), than the roles she was famous for doing. Her role in OKLAHOMA! is probably more well-known today, than any other. People seeing her in something like THE BIG HEAT, might find that strange.
