South Pacific is a 1958 film adaptation of the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical
South Pacific which was based on James A. Michener's Tales of the South Pacific.
The film starred Rossano Brazzi and Mitzi Gaynor in the leading roles, with Juanita
Hall in the part of Bloody Mary that she had played in the original stage production.
Ironically, Hall, who not only sang in the stage production but also took part in the
recording of the cast album, had her singing dubbed for the film version, by Muriel
Smith. Metropolitan Opera star Giorgio Tozzi provided the singing voice for the role
of Emile de Becque. John Kerr starred as Lt. Cable, and his voice was dubbed by Bill
Lee. Ken Clark, who played Stewpot, was dubbed by Thurl Ravenscroft. Thus, Mitzi
Gaynor, as well as Ray Walston, a noted Broadway musical actor, were the only
principal cast members whose own singing voices were used
Note: The film opens with a three-minute, thirty-second musical overture
