Plot Summary
Summary 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."

ReviewSource Reel.com
Review With the exception of their final musical, The Sound of Music, South Pacific is Rodgers and Hammerstein's only other work to grapples with a political and moral issue directly. As in Carousel, the characters in South Pacific possess odious traits, yet they are never mere stick figures. Instead, they are human beings capable of evolving...South Pacific is the most handsome of the Rodgers and Hammerstein musicals. Like Oklahoma!, it gets a comic boost from its supporting characters. Ray Walston, in particular, as a scheming seaman is a scream - and he looks just great in a grass skirt and wig during the "Honey Bun" number. With songs like "Honey Bun" and "Gonna Wash That Man Right Out of My Hair" on the soundtrack, South Pacific also benefits from one of Rodgers and Hammerstein's brightest scores.
