Trivia

The song "Lonely Room" (sung by Jud) was omitted from the film. In the song, Jud explains his bitter resentments and deep frustrations. Possibly this was considered too strong for 1955 film-goers. See more »

Goofs

During the auction scene, when Aunt Eller forcefully slams the gavel on Curly's high bid, the hammer breaks, and the head launches towards the camera, almost hitting the lens. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Curly: [singing] There's a bright golden haze on the meadow, There's a bright golden haze on the meadow. The corn is as high as a elephant's eye, And it looks like it's climbin' clear up to the sky. Oh, what a beautiful mornin', Oh, what a beautiful day! I got a beautiful feelin' Everything's goin' my way.

I love musicals
8 June 2003 | by (Ill) – See all my reviews

It is a rarity these days to see a good (none the less) musical on tv or in the theaters,with the exception of "Chicago". Even less to find "classic" worthy films. I grew up on watching old classic musicals or just classic movies. Black and white movies mostly. Oklahoma! has to be one of the most wounderful movies ever made. Most of my friends have never seen this movie, I finally made them watch it and now I am glad to say we have a weekly ritual to watch classics.
