“Love is like the measles. You only get it once, and the older you are, the harder you take it,” said Adam.
This is one of those musicals that is a must see! You have a mountain village, you have lumberjacks, and women who grow to love the men that took them. The movie was made in 1954 so the coloring is a little off, but still enjoyable.
The film was directed by Stanley Donen and the film was based upon The Sobbin Women. I personally like this movie! I think its alot of fun and there is some great musical numbers in it. Here is the plot…During the 1850s, Milly (Jane Powell), a pretty young cook, marries Adam (Howard Keel), a grizzled woodsman, after a brief courtship. When the two return to Adam’s farm, Milly is shocked to meet his six ill-mannered brothers, all of whom live in his cabin. She promptly begins teaching the brothers proper behavior, and most importantly, how to court a woman. But after the brothers kidnap six local girls during a town barn-raising, a group of indignant villagers tries to track them down.
Chaos, fun, and music make this movie enjoyable. Especially with Jane Powell and Howard Keel they really bring the film to life with their great performances.
