This is my favourite seven minutes in a movie. The Barn Dance sequence from Seven Brides For Seven Brothers. And of course, even with the flirty behaviour of the six young women, kidnapping is always wrong. I’m pleased to have movies like this in my collection because I’m have a lurking concern they’ll be banned …
With Stockholm Syndrome being in the news during these days where people seem to be developing affection for the authority figures holding them hostage it seems as good a time as any to watch Seven Brides For Seven Brothers again. No one in this whole movie makes good decisions, by the way.
The finest movie musical about relationships begun through deceit and mass kidnapping. The new Blu-ray version of Seven Brides For Seven Brothers is based on a long lost print and looks sublime.
