  • A classic worthy of the name Jul 31, 2010
    by Janine T

    I have lived with the music of this musical since I was 12 years old. The movie is fun, moving and still very timely with its theme of war and prejudice and the shortness of life and what makes it worth living. If you like vintage musicals that have kept their "watchability", South Pacific was one of the pioneer musicals that had a serious theme and great fun rolled in one!

    I think we all grew up with the tunes from this classical musical. Now see what the story line is that prompted such songs as "Bali Hai", Some Enchanted Evening", "I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Outta' My Hair" and the rest.
    Wonderful setting on a Pacific island during WWII. The shooting war, for these sailors, marines, etc., hasn't quite begun. They are waiting to face the enemy and are sitting in a tropical paradise.
    The base personnel have developed a relationship with the residents of the island but they are still prejudicial, in many ways. These people are not like the ones back home that they know. Should they allow themselves to fall in love? What about after the war? Can they take their new loves home? Alternatively, can they live in the south Pacific?
    Watch & see. A thoroughly delightful musical with a great story. It's another time and another place for the characters & for the viewer.
    Enjoy.

    Although the movie is not without faults- it is overlong in parts and there is an overuse of colour filters the melodies beautifully played by Alfred Newman at 20th Century Fox shine through however. Gaynor and Brazzi have real chemistry in the leads and the transfer to DVD is first rate highlighting the quality of the location shooting. If only they had dispensed with those filters. This DVD version is good value as you have interesting extras.
