There are overlapping stories of different people with extremely different backgrounds and how the cope or not with each other in a time of adversity during the second world war in the south pacific.
This is a musical and the songs (most have the feel of the 50's, others are timeless) tell the story best of all. Be sure to also obtain the soundtrack.
Different colored filters are used in filming this movie to give you different atmospheric feelings to match the songs. It also poses a sort of dream like quality to the story.
You will recognize that many of the best actors of the time were picked. This includes recently deceased Ray Walston who played Luther Billis.
There was some decision to do some dubbing of the songs; however it does not distract form the ambiance of the film or the nature of the story.
So prepare to be absorbed in the Tales of the South Pacific.
With all the cinema options today I almost forgot that I had this tape until yesterday when Ray Walston who played Luther Billis died. I keep thinking of "Honey Bun" Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II Music by Richard Rodgers Performed by Mitzi Gaynor, Ray Walston, and Chorus.
South Pacific (1958 Film Soundtrack) [SOUNDTRACK] [ORIGINAL RECORDING REMASTERED]
Do not let all this dubbing or comparing to plays discourages you from a good movie. I think they should have dubbed Madonna in Evita with some one who had range and resonance.
I do not want to rehash the story. However it is about how people from different cultures are thrown together in a remote south Pacific location during WWII. And how the deal with different problems and personalities.
Pour les courageux, il ne vous reste plus qu'à lire le sous-titrage français approximatif... pendant 2h31

More than that, it was held to be a summation and celebration of a totally victorious America's experience in the Second World War even though the war was kept in the background. The musical, which takes place on an idyllic Pacific island where the Navy is waiting for the action to begin, is able to be mostly comic or else dealing with the difficulties of two pairs of lovers, and when it gets serious it takes on racism, not war. The much-anticipated film was as enormous a success as the stage version.
The film has had its share of detractors over the years, with many criticizing its length, direction and choice of actors. But really, having seen it many times, I consider it very well done, just about all it could have possibly been, and enormously enjoyable. I find it almost perfectly cast, especially the vibrant Mitzy Gaynor as cockeyed optimist Nellie Forbush. Everyone else is as well cast as they could be. I don't know what the critics want: South Pacific as King Lear? Many of the singing parts were dubbed, but it's not noticeable.
There is one real issue: The Color Filters. For some reason - some say from the use of lighting on the stage - director of both the stage and movie versions, Joshua Logan, decided to enhance the musical moments by filming the musical parts through colored lenses that would bring out the mood of each song. It was a curious choice and a disaster then as much as now. It speaks volumes that people loved the work so much that they didn't let it get in the way. It also speaks volumes that people have complained about getting a bad tape or DVD copy. Since nothing like this had really been tried before, and since this was a very big budget, prestige picture with a lot on the line, I'm amazed that the studio heads and Rodgers & Hammerstein themselves (who were always major consultants in the filming of their works) allowed this to happen. At the very least, the studio could have filmed "normal Technicolor" versions of the numbers as well for backup. After all, two complete versions of Oklahoma were shot using separate takes, one for Todd-AO and one for Cinemascope. In one of the rare times I would approve of tampering with a film, the computer colorizing process could be used to make an alternate version of these scenes so either the original or a colorized "normal color" version could be seen on DVD or Blu-ray.
As it is you will have to adjust to sudden, unexpected color changes, but you will still enjoy a full evening's entertainment with the great South Pacific.
Currently going round and round with Fox to see if they will still provide me with the Digital Copy.
Every cast member is superb. The orchestra is fantastic. But, I must question Twentieth-Century Fox's choice of Josh Logan as director. Yes, he was an acclaimed director of this era, but that distinction resulted from directing several Broadway hits. There is a tremendous difference between directing plays and directing for the screen. For one example, view the scene with the airmen singing "Bloody Mary;" the camera (and actors) remain relatively motionless as if they are in a play. Awkward to say the least.
One last comment I heard on one of the two excellent commentaries.(I think it's on Ted Chapin's commentary). This is the scene when Bloody Mary leads Lt.Cable to her house to meet her daughter for (unknown to Lt. Cable) a possible marriage. Why did the censors of the 50's insist John Kerr be shirtless, and carry his shirt over his arm? Well, I won't spoil it for you--just view the commentary and you will be as stunned as I was. The censors were firmly at work here--no sex or even thought of sex was allowed.
