I was pleasantly surprised as I had never watched Gilbert & Sullivan before, or realized just how risqué and anti-establishment they were (for their time).

*sorry couldn't find her singing anything from Cats so ignore Cliff on this duet from Phantom - she knocks spots off Elaine Paige and Sarah Brightman every time!
Tonyblack wrote:South Pacific is great and dealt with some really controversial issues at the time such as inter-racial sex and bigotry. The movie is a little spoiled by the director's experimentation with coloured filters - but there's some really great songs in there.
The movie of Oklahoma was actually mostly filmed in Arizona.
