About the Movie

Seven Brides for Seven Brothers is an Academy Award-winning classic. This rousing musical tells the story of Adam (Howard Keel) and his six unruly brothers. Adam marries Milly (Jane Powell) who's appalled by the motley crew and takes it upon herself to tame them. At a community barn raising, the brothers fall in love with the girls from town and manage to alienate everyone else. Lovesick, the boys kidnap the girls and in the chaos and uproar that follows, the girls fall in love — becoming brides for the brothers.
