Close may be a little mature to be cockeyed optimist and smalltown nurse Nellie Forbush but she gives it her all (and served as one of the exective producers) in this TV remake of the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical. Filmed in Australia and Tahiti, the scenery, music, and capable cast (who can sing just fine), all contribute. Of course, Connick Jr. (as romantic Lt. Cable) has an advantage in the vocal area but Serbedzija's plantation owner Emile de Becque has charisma to spare.
