i only wish that it could have continued on forever
i love this musical, i have ever since i was 16 yrs old and now i'm 22 going onto 23. i would have loved this musical to continue on forever. its lovely. i love the brothers i love the brides. i think Jane Powell, Howard keel, Russ & tommy were great. its all singing, all comedy fun musical to watch over and over again. but one must face facts, its only one film and not a trilogy. i wish you all to enjoy it.
here is a toast to the cast: Jane, Howard, Jeff, Matt, Marc, Jacques, tommy, Russ, Julie, Miss R. Lee (yes i know your name, but the Internet Movie Database is picking it up as a mistake), Norma, Virgina, Betty and Nancy. and to Micheal Kidd for his wonderful work and for Stanley for fighting to have this musical done. i'm glad this movie got better reviews than the silly Brigadoon, which was supposed to be the hit of that year. if i was you i would have said "in your face" to MGM for not having any faith in you, but hey your not me and you seem to be a good sport. this movie is a classic so thank you for giving it to your generation, my mothers generation, my generation and in future my children's generation. to the cast, i'm sad that i never saw the majority of you in other films, i hope that where ever you are that you are well and are happy. to Jane Powell, i adore your films and to Howard may you rest in peace (hopefully). to Russ i loved you in west side story. tommy - you cracked me up in the movie and made me laugh so hard, and i've seen you in merry Andrew which was a great film too. Jacques, your were the most good-looking of the brothers (along with Tommy), if i was bold enough i would have asked if you had a son (kidding!) and the rest of the brothers who were excellent, Jeff who was great in the bedroom where all the brothers are, Matt and Marc for there dancing as well. to the beautiful brides, i love the song June bride and i think all of you were great.
great job to you all
