Carousel (1956, U, 123 mins)

Based on the lauded Rodgers and Hammerstein stage musical, this film follows the romance of Billy Bigelow (Gordon MacRae), a charming carousel barker, and Julie Jordan (Shirley Jones), a pretty worker from a nearby mill.  When the attractive young couple get married, they also both find themselves unemployed, which puts a strain on their relationship.  When Billy finds out that Julie is pregnant, he resorts to extreme measures to get money, a decision that leads to tragedy.
