State Fair is a 1962 American musical film directed by José Ferrer and starring Pat Boone, Bobby Darin, Ann-Margret, Tom Ewell, Pamela Tiffin and Alice Faye. A remake of the 1933 film State Fair and the 1945 State Fair films, it was considered to be a financially and critically unsuccessful film. Richard Rodgers wrote additional songs, both music and lyrics, for this 1962 version of the novel to film adaptation. His partner, Oscar Hammerstein, had died in 1960.
While the 1933 and 1945 versions were set at the Iowa State Fair, this 1962 version was set in Texas (the family drives through Dallas where the State Fair of Texas is held). It was filmed on soundstages at Twentieth Century Fox in California, at various locations in Texas,  at Mooney's Grove park in Visalia, California, and the climactic speedway sequence was filmed on location at the Oklahoma State Fair Raceway in Oklahoma City where the Oklahoma State Fair is held.. The Tilt-A-Whirl that was used in the film is currently at a small theme park in Golden, Colorado.[citation needed ]
The novel State Fair would be dramatized twice more following the 1962 film. The first State Fair stage musical, which utilized a variety of Rodgers and Hammerstein songs (many originally written for projects not related to their State Fair film), was first produced in 1969. A revised version of this stage musical was produced in the 1990s and eventually played on Broadway. A non-musical version of State Fair was filmed for televsion in 1976.
