Box set containing three popular musicals from Rodgers and Hammerstein. In 'South Pacific' (1958), an American Navy nurse (Mitzi Gaynor) stationed on a South Pacific Island falls in love with a middle-aged French planter (Rossano Brazzi), who goes on to become a war hero. Includes the songs: 'There is Nothing Like a Dame'; 'Bali Ha'i'; 'Happy Talk'; and 'I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa My Hair'. In 'Oklahoma' (1955), farmhands Curly (Gordon McRae) and Will (Gene Nelson) fall for local girls Ado (Gloria Grahame) and Laurey (Shirley Jones). The path to true love is thwarted, however, by nasty farmhand Jud Fry (Rod Steiger). Featuring classics such as 'Oh, What a Beautiful Morning' and 'People Will Say We're in Love'. Finally, 'Carousel' (1956) tells the story of carnival barker Billy Bigelow, who is killed committing an armed robbery in order to provide for his baby girl. Years later Billy is allowed to return to Earth for his daughter's graduation. Gordon MacRae, Shirley Jones and Cameron Mitchell star. Songs included are 'If I Love You', 'Soliloquy', and 'You'll Never Walk Alone'.
