Special Guest Russell Grant to present an insight into the making of “South Pacific”

The Pulitzer Prize winning book ‘Tales of the South Pacific’ became one of the most-lush musical movies in Hollywood history. It began life on the Broadway stage under brilliant stage director Joshua Logan but why did he want to make it a film first and Rodgers & Hammerstein insist on putting it on stage before hitting the silver screen? How is it the stars of the hit Broadway show, Mary Martin and Ezio Pinza, never made the movie? The leading roles were given to a relatively unknown Hollywood actress and Italian actor who couldn’t even sing! Where did Doris Day fit into the casting? What did Joshua Logan the film’s director desperately want to change after the release of the film but was refused by the studio? All this a more behind-the-scenes tales of the making of ‘South Pacific’ as Rodgers & Hammerstein doyen, Strictly Come Dancing star, Russell Grant, reveals all on-the-night.
