As Overheard in NY (1st Edition)

"Why do they have to ruin this movie with all the singing?"
-overheard in my living room from my bff Lovey while watching the classic Seven Brides for Seven Brothers.
I loved this movie as a child. Only God and my mother know why. Now I can hardly look at Milly with that crazy hair-do and frighteningly teensy waist. How the heck does she sing or breathe without a life-sized torso?And yet, somehow I'm mesmerized. Captivated. Can't seem to tear my eyes away from the on-screen spectacle. It's really something like a phenomenon.

Oh and when the brothers jump through axes while balancing on a board? Sexy.

I've never seen this one. Isn't that tragic? But I know how it is being fascinated with a musical -- I was alll about Annie when I was a kid. I still say it's my favorite movie ever.

Setting aside it's the second most ridiculously sexist musical in existence (number one being "My Fair Lady")I have to say it's one of my top ten. I can sing "Sobbin' Women" all day long!
