Trailers from Hell: John Landis on Stanley Donen's Backwoods Musical 'Seven Brides for Seven Brothers'

Relationship Roulette! week concludes at Trailers from Hell with director John Landis introducing Stanley Donen’s fabulously original battle-of-the-sexes backwoods movie musical, “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers.” It even has an avalanche!

Sexual politics get the once-over as a family of Oregon
mountain men decide to take ’em some wives. Donen’s film is famed for its knockout choreography by Michael Kidd and proved
immensely popular worldwide, leading to no less than five different stage shows
(1979-2007), a tv series and even a 1982 Bollywood knockoff.
