This is an all-time favorite of mine.
I've seen it SO many times.
And I can still sit down and watch it, and love it.
I love Howard Keel.
I love that the brothers are named alphabetically from the Bible:
Adam, Benjamin, Caleb, Daniel, Ephraim, Frank(incense), Gideon.
I love the scene when Gideon is trying to lure Alice outside and meows like a cat.
I love the dance right before they raise the barn.
If you haven't seen it, you are missing out. :)
