When the eldest of seven brothers (Howard Keel) living on the frontier in the Oregon Territory returns with a bride (Jane Powell), she is shocked to learn that her new home includes six untamed, unkempt and uncouth brothers-in-law. Her efforts to turn the six brothers into gentlemen inspire them to find wives of their own ... leading to an all-out, singing, dancing, Wild West battle of the sexes.

Directed by Stanley Donen (SINGIN' IN THE RAIN), the film is based on Stephen Vincent Benet's The Sobbin' Women. Nominated for five Academy Awards, including Best Picture, 1954's SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN BROTHERS remains one of the greatest movie musicals ever filmed.
