Is he going to singggg…..??? YES! Another musical!
Very lighthearted, fun aaannd a tad bit sexist. I was offended, at times, but I got over it in the end. After all it is set in the 1850’s… women didn’t have rights yet! It reminded me a lot at the beginning of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves.
The director, Stanley Donen, also directed ‘Singin’ in the Rain’ (one of my top 10 fave movies). You can see the similarities in style, which is probably why I enjoyed the dancing so much!
Milly, the main character is now on my list of awesome female characters that don’t take no bull! Go Milly.
Lost points for the one liners degrading women and the lyrics in some of the songs… gets a 4!
