Don’t miss this romantic musical film adaptation of the Rogers and Hammerstein musical back on the big screen.
Nurse Nellie Forbush (Mitzi Gaynor) of the U.S. Navy falls for middle-aged French plantation owner Emile De Becque (Rossano Brazzi), but recoils upon discovering that he’s fathered two mixed-race children. When Nellie leaves him, the heartbroken Emile agrees to take on a dangerous espionage mission. In his absence, Nellie struggles to reconcile her prejudices with her love for him. After she spends time with his children and comes to care for them, she fears that Emile may not return alive.
All this amorous activity, with the attendant problems of interracial romance, provide fodder for the some of Rodger & Hammerstein’s most famous and well-loved tunes, including “I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Out of My Hair,” “Bali Ha’i,” and “Got to Be Taught to Hate.”
