CGiii Comment

Oklahoma stinks!
 
Admittedly, there are a few good tunes and it is as camp as spray-painted udders.
 
But...the choreography is frightening, the story would induce shell-shock ...and, Shirley Jones is a complete, high-maintenance cow.
 
Oh...and it is 50 minutes too long...that dream sequence, what a horror.
