Synopsis:
Love blossoms on a paradisical South Seas island during World War II in this splashy screen production of the hit Broadway musical. A Navy nurse falls for a French planter, an American lieutenant woos a fetching native girl and an assortment of sailors lust after female military personnel. 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."

Notes:

Additional cast members: Floyd Simmons (Harbison); Candace Lee (Ngana); Warren Hsieh (Jerome); Galvan De Leon (Sub Chef); Robert Jacobs (Communications Man); Archie Savage (Native Chief); Darleen Engle (Nurse-Dancer); Richard Cutting (Admiral Kester) Giorgio Tozzi was credited for dubbing in Ezio Pinza's voice.
