The film already feels too long (and I know musicals are generally supposed to be long, but they shouldn't feel like it).
It should be noted that this one of three films in history to win an Oscar for choreography...Gene Kelly for An American in Paris, Jerome Robbins for West Side Story, and Onna White for this film, though I think her choreography for the film version of The Music Man trumps her work here.
