U.S., 1956, 128 min, 2K DCP, Dir. Henry King, Not rated but suitable for children, Swank
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 played by Shirley Jones. Tragedy strikes these star-crossed lovers, though, and their journey is not easy. The story of Billy making his way to Heaven and back again, providing love and solace to his wife and daughter, and redemption for himself, is the basis for 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 Rodgers' personal favorite.
