* CutSong: "Boys and Girls Like You and Me." It later turned up in {{Screen To Stage Adaptation}}s of ''Film/StateFair'' and ''{{Film/Cinderella}}''.


Added DiffLines:

* TrailersAlwaysSpoil: The ad for the general theatrical release of the [=CinemaScope=] version of the movie revealed who Laurey would pick, and how the other man would exact his revenge. Ads for the movie's home video releases also tend to spoil the former.

The musical is a radical departure from the mostly fluffy musical comedies that had preceded it. It integrated the book (the spoken dialogue) with the music without attempting to justify it. Its use of dance as adding to the plot and atmosphere was also a change from the showgirls of previous musicals. It was not the first to use such techniques (''ShowBoat'', which also featured lyrics and libretto written by Hammerstein, predated it by nearly 20 years), but its impact is unmistakable.

''Oklahoma!'' is a 1943 [[TheMusical musical]], possibly the most influential musical in the genre. It was based on the play ''Green Grow the Lilacs'' and adapted by {{Rodgers and Hammerstein}}. Set in 1906, it tells the story of a young cowboy named Curly, and a farm girl, Laurey. They're obviously in love, but neither of them will admit it. The sinister farmhand, Jud, asks Laurey to a dance. Laurey is afraid of him, but she accepts to spite Curly. The story takes a dark turn as Laurey realizes that Jud is dangerous, and that, if she were to turn him down, he could become violent.
