how about this for the march classic movie of the month? this oscar-winning film could be the ultimate musical. for those who've seen it, tell me you didn't pick out your favorite brother and bride. admit it, you wanted to be that girl.. you dreamt of wearing her gingham dress and being swept around a barnfloor in his arms. and if you haven't seen it, watch and pick your favorite couple tonight on tcm!
truly, seven brides is right up there with the music man and singin' in the rain. among the greats, and maybe even my favorite. grant and i both grew up singing along with it (one of us camped out on the carpet of her cousins' basement, because she didn't own the movie herself), and now we refer to it as the movie that brought us together. it holds a special place in our lives.
after all, it was during the annual camp shetek staff
showing of seven brides for seven brothers
that grant first asked me on a date.

Ah, yes! I like this very much. :) It's been a long time since I've watched it, though. My favorite was the youngest couple (his name was Gideon, and I can't remember her name, but wasn't she the minister's niece?). : )
