O is for……………

Well, looks like another week has passed by (not sure where it went lol)
and here we are again wondering
what letter today is dedicated to at Mum’s Alphabet Blogging Challenge

Today’s letter is O
and that means I can show you a clip from one of my favourite musicals

Did you know
it was the first musical written by Richard Rogers and Oscar Hammerstein?
It opened on Broadway in 1943 and tells the story of the growing romance between Curly Mclain and and Laurey Williams.

The film version was first screened in 1955
with Gordon McRae and Shirley Jones in the lead roles

I’m sure a lot of you will know some of the songs from the muscial
‘The Surrey with the fringe on top’
‘People will say we’re in love’
as well as my favourite

Oh what a beautiful morning
sung by Gordon McRae

Mum is hosting Alphabet Blogging
pop over and see what others have found for the letter O

Next Friday the letter will be N – Perhaps you’d like to join in

  1. I didn’t see it when it first came out, but on the 25 cent night at the local theater when I was 14. The songs still linger in the crinkles of my mind. That’s over half of a century ago! Why can’t I remember what I ate for breakfast as well?


  2. When I was a teenager I just loved musicals and Oklahoma was a favourite. I used to know all the lyrics and would sing a long when I put on my vinyl record. I think I still have it stashed away in the attic with other musical favourites but no means of playing them today!
    Thanks for the memory!

  3. That movie reminds me of my Granny, she took me to see it and often sang the songs as she worked around her house. Thanks for the memory.


  4. What a great musical! I enjoyed seeing the clip you shared. I am a morning person and most days I think of that song when I get up. Thanks for sharing.


  5. It was a wonderful morning here with the sun shining and it’s turned out to be a wonderful day. Hope your day was wonderful too. Happy Easter to you and yours.
    Love from Mum


  6. Am soooooooo with you. LOVED OKLAHOMA. Have seen it multiple times, both in the movies and when a high school performed it…they did a pretty good job of it too.


  7. Oklahoma is definitely OK. I have lived here all of my life and in these Oklahoma towns: Hominy, Cleveland, Heavener, Shawnee, Nowata, Tahlequah, El Reno, Altus, Muskogee, Ada, Pryor, Okmulgee, Tulsa, Fairland. Every Summer, just outside of Tulsa near Sand Springs at a place called Discoveryland you can see the musical Oklahoma at a outside theater and be served a genuine western chuck wagon dinner.
