As a former resident of Oklahoma, I can say that "pleasant but old-fashioned and mostly forgettable" applies to both this musical and the state itself.

Iconic musical. Watched Todd AO version on blu ray. Drags a lot in the middle dream sequence which was popular with other musicals. Very dramatic auction! Neatly tied up ending. No black people or native Americans in the West apparently...just ranchers and farmers with a lot of free time during the day. Fav scene: railroad dance.

Nice musical with bright costumes and a simple plot with a classical 2-guys-1-girl conflict. The more upbeat song and dance numbers are up there with the best musicals of the era. There is an interpretive dance sequence in the middle which doesn't quite fit the tone and pacing of the rest of the movie. Shirley Jones's character is a firecracker and a memorable scene is when she sends Jud's buggy careening on a wild ride. I think Gloria Grahame about steals it from her with her goofy song though.

Dated but quaint musical with some great sing along numbers and enough wide open scenery for anyones taste. Well acted and an enjoyable watch.

What I liked: A few catchy tunes, the colors, the vistas, and most of all, Charlotte Greenwood as Aunt Eller. What I disliked: the pseudo-wholesomeness of this movie makes for such a bizarre film--either everything is over-the-top sugary sweet, or Judd is a peeping tom with violent fantasies. Where's the nuance in character or narrative? These extreme pendulum swings make for one of the most uneven films I've ever seen.

I always wondered what it was like in the old west. Good thing there is this slice of history to show you. Ahhhhh! shoot me now

I hate Rogers and Hammerstein, so I'm biased. And I'm from Kansas City, so I hate hearing that song, making me even more biased. A dated, sappy musical from a time of optimism so relentless it's a wonder there's any conflict in the narrative at all.

This has NOT aged well. Everything feels contrived and forced, from too-broad characterizations to the twinkly antagonism between cowboys and farmers to the joyous anticipation of the bliss of impending statehood (?). Agnes de Mille's choreography is hokey AND campy (that dream ballet is almost unwatchable), and Ms. Jones spends a lot of time whimpering for an "independent" girl (with a homicidal stalker). The only moments of unalloyed pleasure: Gordon MacRae's singing. Holy crap, what a voice!

Wonderful songs, beefy production, but story and characters are nullities. First Todd-AO 70mm. Some framings cut the dancing feet, why?

Dull direction, Gloria Grahame is far too hip to be Ado Annie, and Rod Steiger is so creepy and sweaty its like he parachuted in from some B crime movie. The songs are great, though, and all those pretty girls look lovely in their vintage underwear.

A few good moments but overall representative of camp classic musical adaptations I can't stand.

The only Rodgers and Hammerstein musical that I like, and then only a little bit. Pleasantly weird to see Rod Steiger sing

I like the movie overall but I didn't like the dream sequence at all and it went on way too long.

The best adaptation of an American musical brought to the screen. A big screen love story set against the westward expansion of America.

I can appreciate the movie and what it did when, but it a tad slow, and drawn out. Plus, I wasn't overly impressed with the acting.

Yep, it's too long and it's cornier than a... uh, you know. The bright spot is Gloria Grahame. She can't sing worth a lick, but as the gal who cain't say no to a fellar, she's both fetching and funny. The rest is garish colors and one mid-section showstopper that virtually stops. The. Show.
