Watch South Pacific - Alternative Versions.
Though it is only the second longest running of Rodgers&Hammerstein's
musical shows, South Pacific I believe contains the best score with The
King and I running a close second. On Broadway it opened in 1949 and
closed 1925 shows later in 1954. It gave Mary Martin her career role on
Broadway and made a pop star out of Metropolitan Opera basso Ezio
Opening on Broadway only four years after VE Day, South Pacific found a
ready made audience with the American public who believed in the
rightness of the cause just fought for. The show is based on two short
stories from an anthology of stories entitled Tales of the South
Pacific by James Michener. The success of South Pacific boosted
Michener's reputation as a novelist in no small way.
It's only too bad that South Pacific was not made with the original
Broadway leads because it took so long to come to the screen. Ezio
Pinza had died in 1956. He had done a couple of films in Hollywood that
didn't do that good, but Pinza scored another great success on Broadway
in Fanny. Too bad he didn't get to do that film either.
Mary Martin was also getting a bit long in the tooth by 1958 to be
playing young Ensign Nellie Forbush. Also in a previous sojourn in
Hollywood she hadn't done that good for some inexplicable reason. Mitzi
Gaynor stepped very nicely into Mary's shoes and being more of a dancer
than Martin, Gaynor's part had more dancing than on Broadway. Check the
routine she has when she sings and dances about that wonderful guy
she's just fell in love with. It's a shame that Mitzi Gaynor did not
come along when musicals were at their height. How great she would have
been in some Busby Berkeley epics.
Pinch hitting for Pinza is Rossano Brazzi and for Pinza's voice,
Giorgio Tozzi. The big hit of South Pacific, probably the greatest hit
from Rodgers&Hammerstein is Some Enchanted Evening. The popularity of
that song made the South Pacific original cast album a big seller. And
a whole slew of singers recorded it. Bing Crosby and Perry Como had big
selling records in 1949 and Al Jolson as well.
The comedy is supplied by Ray Walston who was fresh from Broadway and
Hollywood playing Mr. Applegate in Damn Yankees. He plays Luther
Billis, sailor and conman extraordinaire. On Broadway the part was done
by Myron McCormick.
In fact Walston's big scene is a reminder of how film can do things
that on stage you can only imagine. He accidentally falls out of a
plane with a parachute fortunately just off a Japanese held island.
He's thrown a rubber life raft and has to paddle like mad to get out of
range of the enemy weapons. And then sits back and enjoys the show as a
whole slew of fighters pound the Japanese on that island. It's
described on stage, but here you can enjoy it first hand.
The primary story is the romance between nurse Nellie Forbush from
Little Rock, Arkansas and French expatriate planter Emile DeBecque,
Brazzi's character. The secondary story line concerns marine lieutenant
Joseph Cable, nicely played by John Kerr with dubbed singing voice.
Juanita Hall who is from the original cast is Bloody Mary is trying to
match Cable with her daughter Liat played by France Nuyen in one of her
first screen roles. She's quite the operator herself, Bloody Mary and
more than a match for Walston.
Three young players who made it big later and had bit parts in South
Pacific were James Stacy, Doug McClure and featured prominently is Tom
Laughlin, the future Billy Jack.
It's too bad that we don't have a nice technicolor version of Mary
Martin and Ezio Pinza, but this is a pretty good group of players who
worked hard and made a wonderful movie.
