Lisa Schwarzbaum's top 10 wedding films

  • "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers," 1954

    Starring: Jane Powell and Howard Keel

    Fun fact: The title of this film had many incarnations. It was going to be called "The Sobbin' Women" (the film is based on a story about the ancient Roman legend of The Rape [abduction] of the Sabine Women, but MGM executives thought that audiences would not be interested in seeing a film with this title. It was first retitled "A Bride for Seven Brothers", but the censors thought it sounded too risque, so it was altered to "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers."
