Reviews
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.
