Poor Mitzi did an adequate job. Betty Grable always looked so artificial, with her delicate skin and false eyelashes, she never cou ld have been believable as a nurse in wartime. Mitzi was perfectly cast in "South Pacific" and the only good thing about that otherwise awful adaptation. r35, you're forgetting Deborah Kerr, who was already a major movie star when they cast her in THE KING AND I. I can't imagine what Logan was thinking with Elizabeth Taylor. Then she decided to make a comeback; lost all the weight and got back in great shape. At least Kiri looked and sounded like she was having fun. And he turned to me and said, I don’t care who she is. Of course, for the movie, she would likely have done it differently. I'm sure with all those weird color filters and lighting tricks they used on this movie Logan could have some way to make Merman appear younger and female. Her real name is Francesca Marlene de Czanyi von Gerber. Please click here to get full access and no ads for $1.99 or less per month. Who was DD fuming to get all her roles? [quote]Ironically, both Debbie Reynolds and Shirley Jones might have been excellent. I personally liked doris, but far too sweet,can you imagine her rejecting the mixed race children in south pacific, and you must remember doris had not made a hit musical for a few years,the pajama game bombed at the box office,they blamed her leading man,also jumbo was a ,flop, doris went on to star in those silly outdated comedies, when Richard Harris commented he had never seen anything more ridiculous a middle age woman dressed with pigtails and lomg socks, NO Mitzi everytime,she went on to have a great career,doing what she loved the best, singing and dancing, and still doing it today, the other great dancers careers were finished in the late fifties, as they could not hack it on the stage, no dubbing there voices, no camera to do twenty takes, I am so glad Mitzi is getting all the attention and life time achievement awards she so deserves, a great talent, should have done more in Hollywood, but what was around, not a lot, buy the dvd mitzi the razzle dazzle years, she show what real X Factor is. She retired for a few years and put on weight. Brazzi was so humiliated he fussed and fumed on the set whenever he had to mouth to the other man's voice until Logan (according to Logan) told him off then convinced him to cooperate. This musical was largely about 2 romances that occurred on islands, in the South Pacific, during WWII. Debbie Reynolds, however, could have been good. RE: Oscar Levant quote @R103...that's exactly why Doris day should have done 'South Pacific,' despite a lower than usual salary. Were we mean to you the first time? I thought he was just being poetic, since the show revolved around nuns. Audrey and Leslie Caron and Shirley MacLaine had different versions of pixies hairdos. Don't pee on my leg and tell me it's raining. Several gay bodybuilders are in the film. Josh Logan told a funny story on Rodgers and Hammerstein. r243's post made me think of Bill Murray's birthday party scene in "Tootsie".
