Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #75 ~ OKLAHOMA

"Oh What a Beautiful Mornin' "

For this weeks card I was was inspired by the first and second verse of the song:

"Oh What a Beautiful Mornin' "

I've got a beautiful feelin'
Everything's goin' my way.

There's a bright, golden haze on the meadow
There's a bright, golden haze on the meadow
The corn is as high as an elephant's eye
And it look like it's climbing clear up to the sky.

This movie always surprises me... Each time I watch this movie I am reminded by some of the greatest songs ever written.. You know those songs you grew up hearing your mother/grandmother singing. Maybe you were even luck to have grown up in the era of AMAZING musical wonder... I think I was meant to been born in a different era for music and dance.. But I defiantly don't want to be June Cleaver.. I have the most AMAZING husband that is very much a partner in all things... Plus I just can't see doing all the house work in heals.. I would be over 6 ft tall if I did.. LOL

Back to the movie... Shirly Jones is so adorable as Laurey. She has the most amazing waist line in yikes! She can sing and dance and really bring the character to life.. And Gordan McCray as Curly has the most Romantic voice... Swoon here <3>

This little romantic western musical is a hoot.. Laurey and Curly have to fight to keep there relationship strong and also help Ado Annie from running of with the new peddler that just came to town... And she just "Cain't say NO" This song is so whinny it will crack you up.. I remember a classmate audition for a musical singing this song.. We all had a giggle over the song at the time.. Then you have the typical scene where all the girls are up in the bedroom getting ready for the dance etc and stressing over if the guy is going to like them or not... All around this is just one of those wonderful family movie ALL can watch together and make great memories together..
