Image result for seven brides for seven brothers

Willful, handsome Adam Pontipee (Keel) goes to town and brings home a wife, Milly (Powell), in 19th century Oregon Territory. She meets his six rowdy, uncouth brothers, all single, all longing for brides. Later on, after bad advice from their older brother, they go to town themselves, and abduct six local beauties. Taking the rape of the sabine women as the basis for a Hollywood musical seems a crazy venture, but this is a fantastic musical. Every song is lovely, and the premise makes for funny social satire.
