State Fair is a 1962 American musical film directed by José Ferrer. The film is a remake of the 1933 and 1945 films of the same name. It was considered to be a financially and critically unsuccessful film. It starred Pat Boone, Bobby Darin, Ann-Margret, Tom Ewell, Pamela Tiffin and Alice Faye. Richard Rodgers wrote additional songs, both music and lyrics, for this version. His partner Oscar Hammerstein had died in 1960. While the stage musical, 1933 and 1945 film were set at the Iowa State Fair, this 1962 version was filmed in Dallas, Texas, where the State Fair of Texas takes place every year in Fair Park. The Tilt-A-Whirl that was used in the film is currently at a small theme park in Golden, Colorado.[citation needed]
