‘Oklahoma where the wind comes sweepin’ down the plain.’ It is almost impossible to think about the state of Oklahoma without hearing the iconic soundtrack to the 1955 musical of the same name in your head. One of the interesting facts about the film Oklahoma is although the producers had hoped to film the production in Oklahoma, they had to move to the neighboring state of Arizona for a very good reason.

The incredible underground wealth in Oklahoma meant that the oil wells were a distraction in the exterior scenes. This small detail hasn’t stopped the state of Oklahoma from being rightfully proud of the movie, which won various Academy Awards. The title song was adopted as the Oklahoma song in 1953.
