|Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis:
Disappointing filmization of great Rodgers & Hammerstein show; adaptation of James Michener's moving vignettes about WW2 life on Pacific island needs dynamic personalities to make it catch fire, and they aren't here. Even location filming is lackluster. Adequate but hardly memorable. Songs include ``Some Enchanted Evening,'' ``Bali H'ai,'' ``There Is Nothing Like a Dame,'' ``Happy Talk,'' ``You've Got to Be Taught,'' etc. Among the sailors and servicemen you'll spot John Gabriel, Ron Ely, Doug McClure, and James Stacy. Originally shown at 171m. Todd-AO.
