Academy Awards 1958 - Best Sound
Rating: 5/5 -- Despite the reddish hues, one great Rodgers and Hammerstein musical.
Rating: C+ -- Joshua Logan's stiff screen version leaves much to be desired, and Mitzi Gaynor is miscast and charmless, but the score is undenibaly glorious Full Review
Rating: 77/100 -- Might not be musical enough for some, and it's certainly not going to be substantial enough for some. But it's entertaining and more emotionally true than you might expect.
Rating: 1.5/4 -- What the hell could anyone have been thinking in literalizing an "enchanted evening" as a toxic cloud? Full Review
Film Freak Central
4 stars out of 5 -- [I]t's the delicious, good-hearted exuberance of this WWII romantic musical, as well as the Rodgers & Hammerstein score, that grab you.
Rating: C+ -- One of the most popular musicals of the decade, despite artistic problems
A Rodgers and Hammerstein classic revolving around a forbidden love affair between a native girl and a young American sailor on a Pacific island during World War II. Songs include "Some Enchanted Evening," "I'm in Love with a Wonderful Guy," and "Bali H'ai." Academy Award Nominations: 3. Academy Awards: Best Sound.
Love blossoms on a paradisical South Seas island during World War II in this splashy screen production of the hit Broadway musical. A Navy nurse falls for a French planter, an American lieutenant woos a fetching native girl and an assortment of sailors lust after female military personnel. All this amorous activity, with the attendant problems of interracial romance, provide fodder for the some of Rodger & Hammerstein's most famous and well-loved tunes, including "I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Out of My Hair," "Bali Ha'i," and "Got to Be Taught to Hate."
