Before I left Cuba in 1961, the movie "South Pacific" was the last gasp idealization I remember there of the United States. I was maybe seven, and I remember what a big deal it was for me seeing the movie in a theatre with Spanish subtitles. I also remember my parents having the LP and loving the songs although I admit there were lyrics I did not understand. I consider "South Pacific" the greatest Broadway musical - and I am so happy for its revival. Gregory saw it in Lincoln Center as part of his music summer camp. I got the CD, why do I want to call it a record, out of the library today. Great recording.
