  • Details
During Oklahoma's freewheeling territorial days, coquettish Laurey Williams (Shirley Jones) falls for good-natured cowboy Curly McLain (Gordon MacRae). Unfortunately, she also provokes the unwanted affections of brooding hired hand Jud Fry (Rod Steiger). Classic Rodgers and Hammerstein songs abound in this Academy Award-winning musical from director Fred Zinnemann that was adapted for the big screen after a successful Broadway run.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that there's one part that could be scary for some kids: a brief knife fight atop burning haystacks. You'll also find plenty of flirty innuendo in the song "I Cain't Say No."

Sexual Content

Plenty of innuendo in the song "I Cain't Say No" and in much of the dialog between Ado Annie and her suitors. For example, Ali Hakim hopes to lure Ado Annie to a hotel where "paradise" awaits them.


Arson and a knife fight ending in the villain's death.

Social Behavior

At the "box social," men bid on women's picnic baskets to win the chance to dine with the basket-maker. The outdated concept comes across as a harmless and quaint frontier tradition. Jud's bachelor shack has pin-ups on the walls, and it's implied that the kaleidoscope he buys has pictures of nude women.
