Delightful neglected musical with Faye/Murphy in top form
12 February 2001 | by (Putney, VT) – See all my reviews

Despite Mr. Maltin's low opinion of this film (only two stars), it strikes me as being one of the better pieces of musical fluff of the era. The plot in these things is never much - here a fast talking agent (Murray) pulls a publicity ploy to allow his show to open, involving hiring a waiter (Murphy) to pose as an Oklahoma millionaire to squire star (Faye). Of course they fall in love and he must reveal the truth to her eventually. The point here is that the production is tuneful, fast moving, full of wisecracks and Faye and Murphy create magic in their two extended dance routines. Oddly enough although it produced a song standard, the title tune, neither the score nor the song were Oscar nommed - it received a single nod (deservedly) for its stylish art deco interior design and stage sets. Songs: My Fine Feathered Friend; You're A Sweetheart; Scrapin The Toast; So It's Love; Oh Oh Oklahoma; The Trial of Minnie Swing. Interesting to note that the show they're all worried about putting on is called "Oh Oh Oklahoma" and the title tune carries the line "You're Ok, Oklahoma." So maybe R&H weren't so original six years later when they produced their megahit. This is one worth seeing - it's a lot of fun.
