Oklahoma (musical, 1955); starring Shirley Jones.

This movie is sort of two movies in one: a Western musical, and, in the middle, a 20-minute surreal, Freudian psycho-nightmare (that must have really shocked audiences in 1955! They must have said “are we in the wrong theater?? I thought this was ‘Oklahoma’??” Freud was all the rage in Hollywood in the 1950s)[1].

[Movie; duration is 2 hours, 20 minutes].


[1] Freudian themes were popular in Hollywood from the 1940s onward, e.g., the movies “Spellbound,” “Lady in the Dark,” “Now, Voyager” and “I Never Promised You a Rose Garden”; see also the article “Madness at the Movies: Why Hollywood Went Crazy for Freud” by Andrew Scull, in The Sydney Morning Herald, April 3, 2015.
