1982 re-release of "Oklahoma!"

The Samuel Goldwyn Co

Edited from: The Samuel Goldwyn Co 1982 press releaseIssue 42 - December 1995
In a major distribution agreement with the Rodgers and Hammerstein estate, The Samuel Goldwyn Company has acquired the U.S. and Canadian distribution rights to the 1955 film version of Rodgers and Hammerstein's "Oklahoma!" with plans to send the film back into theatres as a 70mm attraction utilizing six-track stereophonic sound.

The re-release, to begin in November, will mark the first time "Oklahoma!" has been shown in its original form since its initial release. First dates will be in Oklahoma City, to coincide with the 75th anniversary of the state of Oklahoma, and in Los Angeles. Openings will follow in New York, San Francisco, Seattle and other key cities.

Major restorations on the film, which has had only limited TV airing and has been theatrically shown only in 35mm since 1956, was done under the supervision of Tom Bodley, Goldwyn's director of the film department, in conjunction with MGM laboratories and Todd-AO. This marks the first time in 20 years that a print has been struck in 70mm, rather than blown up from the conventional 35mm. The restored version will include the films original overtures, exit music and intermission.
