UFO put this on, it was great! Lt Cable actually sings the song but Nellie is listening. Song has Carefully Taught in the title. I listened to the record of Mary Martin and Ezio Prinzo many, many times growing up. He was a Met Opera singer. I also have a recording of Kiri Te Kanawa.
Mitzi Gaynor was in the Movie and Glenn Close did a made of TV version, (am not a fan of that one)

Mario Lanza also was Emile. Rogers and Hammerstein wrote the music and lyrics. I got on a James A Michener phase, starting with "Hawaii" and read all(til then) his books. South Pacific is based on his book "Tales of the South Pacific". When I read it I kept thinking how did Hammerstein get South Pacific out of this? It is literally stories about different things and different islands and Hammerstein pulled them all together into one story.
