Fred Zinnemann United States, 1955

Howard Fritzson's rating of the film Oklahoma!

What would this embalmed movie be like without Rod Steiger and, especially, Gloria Grahame? She should have been given more comic opportunities after delivering this witty "Ado Annie." Zinnemann gives it his all but there was only so much he could do with Rodgers and Hammerstein squatting squarely on the set to protect their "baby."
