Oklahoma - Surrey with the fringe on top

After my last post, and reading the comments, I thought it might be best to share this clip from Oklahoma!

Now, I was going to give you the original Gordon MacRae version. But there's a certain reader (or two) that I think might enjoy viewing Hugh Jackman today.

But of course, my real reason for posting this is to make you all smile.

Hey Christy,

I was just packing up my laptop....leaving to got see David Gray in Chicago...and I thought I'd check out your post today!!

Hugh smile....I meant huge smile! I know you didn't post this for me but I appreciated it anyway!

Did you see him in Baz Luhrmann's Australia? I'm sure you did!! lol

"I wish it could go on forever and never stop!"

Manon, yes, I think I've seen almost all of Hugh's films.
I saw an interview once where he said that he was offered a role on Neighbours (a tv show in Australia that I admit, I watched in the '80s, because we only had about 3 channels to choose from)
Anyway, he changed his mind and declined the offer - wanted to do theatre and landed the Oklahoma role not long after ... and when he auditioned for the role of Wolverine, he still had the "Curly" perm in his hair!

Pam, you're welcome - Hugh is a natural, that's for sure :-)

you crack me up.
but you already know that.

... and Manon, thank you - I feel so much better and I might even be able to blog this weekend!

Christy - Yeah I love him, I need to see more of his films!

Glad you are feeling better!
