Story Challenge : O

OKLAHOMA my contribution to the weekly story challenge from frizztext

Oklahoma  the film

What was more popular than the musicals of the 50’s and 60’s produced by Rogers and Hammerstein ?

Oklahoma! the film from the 50’s was , was based on a same named play from earlier on and was the first feature film photographed in the Todd-AO  70 mm widescreen process. That was apparently films with very high resolution and sounds to me like very high tech for those days.

My favourite song from the film

another  O

Oh what a beautiful morning

There’s a bright golden haze on the meadow,
There’s a bright golden haze on the meadow,
The corn is as high as an elephant’s eye,
An’ it looks like its climbin’ clear up to the sky.

Chorus:
Oh what a beautiful morning,
Oh what a beautiful day,
I’ve got a beautiful feeling,
Everything’s going my way.

Repeat chorus

All the cattle are standing like statues,
All the cattel are standing like statues,
They don’t turn their heads as they see me ride by.
But a little brown mav’rick is winking her eye.

Repeat chorus

All the sounds of the earth are like music,
All the sounds of the earth are like music,
The breeze is so busy it don’t miss a tree,
And an ol’ Weepin’ Willer is laughin’ at me.

Repeat chorus

As a kid I loved to sing the chorus whenever I was in a happy mood.

The corn is as high as an elephant’s eye…………

    Hi Rosa,
    Rogers and Hammerstein were incredibly talented. I love this song too. It’s a great one to belt out at the top of your lungs. When we were kids, we used to sing:
    “Oh, what a beautiful morning!
    Oh, what a beautiful cow!
    I have the funniest feeling
    I’ll get the milk out somehow.”
