Seven Brides for Seven Brothers is a high-energy, feel-good musical that will have you tapping your toes and humming along to its catchy tunes. Set in the 1850s, the story follows seven backwoods brothers who are all in search of wives. When the oldest brother finds love with a local girl, his six younger brothers decide they want wives too, leading to a hilarious and chaotic pursuit of love that involves kidnapping, a snowstorm, and some clever matchmaking. With iconic songs like "Bless Your Beautiful Hide" and "Goin' Courtin'", Seven Brides for Seven Brothers is a classic musical that is sure to leave you smiling and singing long after the curtain falls.
Seven Brides for Seven Brothers is a 1954 American musical film, directed by Stanley Donen, with music by Gene de Paul, lyrics by Johnny Mercer, and choreography by Michael Kidd. The screenplay is by Albert Hackett, Frances Goodrich, and Dorothy Kingsley. Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, which is set in Oregon in 1850, is particularly known for Kidd's unusual choreography, which makes dance numbers out of such mundane frontier pursuits as chopping wood and raising a barn. Film critic Stephanie Zacharek has called the barn-raising sequence in Seven Brides "one of the most rousing dance numbers ever put on screen."
