The Sound of Music 27 (57%) The King and I 8 (17%) Oklahoma! 5 (10%) Flower Drum Song 3 (6%) South Pacific 2 (4%) Carousel 1 (2%) State Fair 1 (2%)
Was anyone really surprised? I wasn't. Julie Andrews treated the competition to a real rear-end kicking as her The Sound of Music thrashed the other Rodgers and Hammerstein adaptations. Yul and Deborah tried to muscle in on the nun and her kids, but had to settle for a distant second place. I was disappointed that SouthPacific didn't fare better because it has so many great songs in it. Carousel must've been hampered by there being two versions of the film made at the same time! The next poll is already up and it's one many of you will like to mull over.
