Post Richard Rodgers and film versions of his musicals
I heard somwhere that unless he could help it, Richard Rodgers didn't want to be involved with the film versions of his musicals. Does anyone know why?

I think he was quite involved with the film version of The Sound of Music - writing both music and lyrics for a few new songs. That may have been an exception though, perhaps since (I think) Hammerstein had passed away by then.
