The censors weren't too happy about the line in the song "Lonesome Polecat" where the brothers lament "A man can't sleep when he sleeps with sheep". By not showing any sheep in the same shot as the brothers, the film-makers were able to get away with it. See more »

An all-time classic, no matter how many times you see it!
I've seen this movie about ten times over the years, and it is such a joy to watch! This movie was nominated for Best Picture, and rightly so. The snappy, well written, melodic songs, coupled with the first rate dancing is a match made in Hollywood musical heaven. By the way, did you know that the guy playing "Frank" was borrowed from the New York Ballet?
This film will put a warm fuzzy feeling in you throughout the entire two hours. This movie stands up against "Singin in the Rain", and "On the Town" any day!
See it in the wide-screen version for the full effect!
