Seven Brides for Seven Brothers
Dir. Stanley Donen (1954).
Donen's exuberant musical, loosely derived from the tale of the Rape of the Sabine Women, is justly celebrated for its superb choreography by Michael Kidd, at its best in the barn-raising sequence, one of the finest acrobatic ensemble dance numbers ever filmed.
