This is the first Todd-AO production which had a frame rate of 30fps, incompatible with 35mm which is 24fps. As a result it was shot simultaneously in 35mm CinemaScope for general release. The second Todd-AO film, Around the World in Eighty Days, was shot in Todd-AO at 30fps and 24fps. 35mm CinemaScope reduction prints could therefore be made from the 24fps version. After this Todd-AO switched to 24fps for all future productions. See more »
When Curley and Laurey are singing "People will say we're in love," the view moves back and forth from the pair standing underneath the peach tree to standing a few feet away from the tree. The change in the shot appears intentional; however, the place where the actors stand whilst singing changes noticeably. See more »
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.

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.
