If you’ve only seen Oklahoma! on TV then you’ve never truly seen it. A widescreen masterpiece based on Rodgers & Hammerstein’s classic Broadway musical, Oklahoma! finds rugged cowboy Curly (Gordon MacRae) pining for the equally smitten Laurey Williams (Shirley Jones in her film debut). The only thing standing in true love’s way is dangerous farm hand Jud (Rod Steiger). Filled with memorable songs such as Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin’, The Surrey with Fringe on Top and the title tune, Oklahoma! is pure joy for all musical and movie fans!
