Overview

One of MGM's most joyously rambunctious musicals gets a deluxe treatment for this special two-disc DVD release. This edition of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers from Warner Bros. Home Video features two versions of the film -- the original, shot in a special Cinemascope process at the aspect ratio of 2.55:1, and another filmed in a more conventional widescreen process at 1.77:1. Both versions appear in this edition, letterboxed in their proper aspect ratio and enhanced for anamorphic play on 16 x 9 monitors. The audio for the 2.55:1 version has been remixed for Dolby Digital 5.1, while the 1.77:1 version features a single-channel mix in Dolby Digital Mono. Both versions feature the audio in its original English-language version, as well as a dubbed track in French, with optional subtitles in English, French, and Spanish also featured. Bonus materials include a commentary track from director Stanley Donen; a documentary on the making of the movie featuring Howard Keel, Jane Powell, and Jacques D'Amboise; newsreel footage of the film's premiere; a collection of trailers for Stanley Donen's pictures; and more.
