Flawed but entertaining!
The most obvious flaw is its running time, it’s very long. I think it’s longer than Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Unfortunately there were other flaws with the movie, so I can’t overlook what I’ve just said. Another flaw was the colour filtering;the orange and yellow picture did get a bit distracting after a while, although the Pacific does look beautiful. Rossano Brazzi, whose singing voice was dubbed, looked wooden, but was he ever not wooden? I must say though, the dubbed singer did a marvellous job.
However, there were a lot of truly excellent things about this movie. Mitsi Gaynor was a lovely lead, and she was wonderful in the musical numbers. She does get a little tiresome toward the end, but most musicals do have the same problem. But Juanita Hall was just perfect as Bloody Mary, I had absolutely no problem with her. The songs were absolutely outstanding. Rodgers and Hammerstein have given us some truly fantastic music scores, and South Pacific is among them. Ray Walston gives comic relief as Luther, I think, and the focus on the war was very endearing. The real star was the stunning choreography, that made the musical numbers so energetic.
All in all, an entertaining, but flawed film, that is underrated in my opinion. 7/10 Bethany Cox
Story seems a little shallow
I’m a great fan of classic musicals. I’ve seen this a coupe times, though not in a Broadway quality road show. There is something not here for me. I know that much of the music is deeply embedded in Americana. I think it’s the story. I just don’t really care much for anyone in it. Nelly is basically a racist and though she comes around, that hangs over everything. I also believe that the treatment of Emile is unfair. He had made a commitment to himself and his family, and deserved better. But the bottom line is that as these people do their individual things, I never really care that much. The movie seems stilted and long. It doesn’t work its way into the latter 20th and early 21st centuries as other musicals do. I saw a few scenes from Fiddler on the Roof the other night. It stands up because its themes and ideas are still relevant. Maybe someone needs to rework a few things. There are great songs.
