Answer

The Coen Brothers' film Hail, Caesar! is not a musical, but features a big song-and-dance moment that is very reminiscent of "There is Nothing Like a Dame" from The Rodgers and Hammerstein musical "South Pacific." The song, "No Dames," was even disqualified from Oscar consideration because of the similarities. The number is led by Channing Tatum as Burt Gurney, who is later revealed to be a Communicst infiltrator to Hollywood. He even is the one to collect the ransom money dropped at the studio by Eddie Mannix (Josh Brolin) to rescue kidnapped star Baird Whitlock (George Clooney).
