Seven Brides for Seven Brothers

For my grandniece Cassie Ross



When I was 12 years old (1954) I saw Seven Brides For Seven Brothers and for the first time fell in love with a woman, Jane Powell. I have seen the movie countless times over the years and still love it and Jane.

Looking for Jane: Yore Beautiful Hide



Jane teaching the brothers: Goin' Courtin'




Why don't they still make beautiful movies like this one?

Yay for SBFSB! I love this movie and always will. When I got married 4 years ago this was one of the first movies my husband and I bought to own in our home. I only have boys now but maybe one day I will have a girl or two to dance around to the music with. For now my boys will just have to like it. :) Love lots!

You know I loved that movie when it first came out in 1954 and I was a 12 year old boy. I even became interested in dancing at that age. I still love dancing but at my age I feel I would look silly dancing around. Also I would probably fall down. I have enough trouble just walking...HaHa.

Nice to read of your love for Jane Powell. You might be interested in my Jane Powell website and fanclub and picture galleries, my plan is to build them up over time into something special as a tribute to such a wonderful star. Reading of your love for Janie really made my day.
