When the eldest of seven Oregon frontier brothers announces his marriage plans, the others follow his advice and kidnap six beautiful women of their own. It's a rollicking musical delight as the brothers compete for the women's affections with raucous song and dance. Nominated for five Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Screenplay, it won an Oscar for its outstanding musical score. Starring Howard Keel ("Kiss Me Kate," TV's "Dallas"), Jane Powell ("Royal Wedding"), Oscar-nominee Russ Tamblyn ("Peyton Place") and the original "Catwoman," Julie Newmar (TV's "Batman"). Directed by Stanley Donen ("Singin' In the Rain," "Damn Yankees").

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Although the powers at M-G-M are deviating from the normal song-and-dance extravaganza in Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, it is a gamble that is paying rich rewards.
Fresh: This is a happy, hand-clapping, foot-stomping country type of musical with all the slickness of a Broadway show.
Fresh: A profoundly sexist and eminently hummable 1954 CinemaScope musical with some terrific athletic Michael Kidd choreography and some better-than-average direction by Stanley Donen.
Fresh: The songs are not classic and the cast is exuberant rather than charismatic, but Kidd's energetic choreography triumphs.
One of the best movies of all time! Howard Keel has an amazing voice and together with Jane Powell really brings the movie together. Worth buying!
This is such a good movie! I watched it with my choir class and we all loved it!
Best Musical of All Time!
The best musical of all time! Can't find a single thing negative about with this movie! The plot and characters work so well together and have such great chemistry!! I can't even explain how good it is! It's a must see, over, and over, and over!!
