Rodgers & Hammerstein Collection, The
Carousel: 50th Anniversary Edition
Filmed on location in a beautiful seaside village, Carousel stars Gordon MacRae as Billy Bigelow, a smooth-talking carny man who falls in love with a millworker (Shirley Jones). Tragedy strikes these star-crossed lovers, though, and their journey is not easy. How Billy makes his way to Heaven and back again, providing love and solace to his wife and daughter, and redemption for himself, is the story of one of the most unique and powerfully uplifting musicals ever written. With a score that includes "If I Loved You" and "You'll Never Walk Alone," little wonder that Carousel was composer Richard Rodger's personal favorite.
The King And I: 50th Anniversary Edition
Rodgers & Hammerstein's regal classic is based on the true story of Anna Leonowens (Deborah Kerr), an English widow who comes to Bangkok in the 1860s to serve as governess to the many children of the King of Siam. As immortalized by Yul Brynner in his OscarÂ®-winning performance, the King is a magnetic and unforgettable figure. When Anna and the King get to know each other - that leads to one of the most unusual and spellbinding friendships in musical history.
