Non-Dancing Scenes
Liz and Jane flank the stars and contribute to the ending stanzas of "Oklahoma!".
While blue is my favorite color,
Liz is an absolute knockout in pink . . . and calico . . . and brown . . . and . . .
Liz and Jane stage center in this vignette from Laurey's Dream segment, leading up to the arty
fight-to-the-death scene between Dream Curly and RealWorld Jud (Rod Steiger).  The director seemed
to work these girls in every chance he got and subtly called your attention to them, and Liz in
particular, as shown in the next two shots.
A great composition
of this moody scene,
reminding me
of a Rembrandt painting.  
Dream Curly has just gotten
his at Jud's hands,
while Dream Laurey
joins the bystanders
in looking on with horror . . .
and who is that
so artfully backlighted
in the crowd?
Liz's third and last line comes when, after the women are told to SKAT!
from the upcoming shivaree, Ado Annie states, with some wonder,
that "It seems like there's times when men ain't got no need for women."
Liz opines, "And there's times when women ain't got no need for men."
Ado's final retort nutshells her philosophy towards men, "Yeah, but who wants to be dead?"
Once burned, twice shy.
Marc Platt, who at least was credited as "Dancer/Cowboy who buys Curly's saddle",
allows that last year, Ado Annie's mince pie gave him a three-day bellyache
and declines to bid on her picnic basket.
Once again our girls are worked into a scene as Liz pensively waits for Ado's reaction
while Jane gives him the once-over.
A great atmospheric (read blurry) action shot taken during the tornado scene, with Lizanne "picking
'em up and laying 'em down" with her usual elan.  Rehearsing this and other scenes over and over
must have been draining on the performers.
