Review On the surface at least, the film had much in common with Oklahoma!, released the previous year. Besides the widescreen, technicolor format and the Rodgers and Hammerstein songs, both films starred rugged bass singer Gordon MacRae and smiling, angelic young Shirley Jones. Both had period Americana costumes and elaborate choreography...While Carousel is a strange musical for the 1950s, perhaps that also explains why it is so good. Everyone has a fine voice, and the songs (especially "You'll Never Walk Alone") are good if overripe. Billy is a much deeper character than you'll find in most non-musicals, while Jigger is a classic villain. Julie should be a dull supporting character, all sugar and sunshine, but the trials brought to her by Billy forces her inner strength to the surface.
