Copyright 1994 CBS/Fox Co.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.4 stars out of 5 -- [I]t's the delicious, good-hearted exuberance of this WWII romantic musical, as well as the Rodgers & Hammerstein score, that grab you.
