Dir: Henry King I USA I 1956

 

Cast: Gordon MacRae, Shirley Jones, Cameron Mitchell

 

A much-loved stage and film musical, Henry King’s 1956 classic Carousel stars Gordon MacRae and Shirley Jones. Based on the 1945 Rodgers and Hammerstein stage musical of the same name, it contains what many critics consider to be some of the pair’s most beautiful songs – no small feat, as they wrote a string of hits from Oklahoma! to The King and I.

The story revolves around Billy Bigelow (Macrae), a rough-talking macho carousel barker, and Julie Jordan (Jones), a young mill worker living in a small town in Maine. They fall in love, but after they are both fired from their jobs, struggle to remain afloat. Years later, following a tragic accident, Billy is given a chance to redeem himself.

An unusually serious and exploratory musical, Carousel juxtaposes elements of realism with pure fantasy alongside its lovely songs, and is led by newcomer Shirley Jones and singer-actor Gordon MacRae with wonderful chemistry and charisma.
