Seven Brides for Seven Brothers

Corrected entry: When the brothers go into town to fetch brides, just before leaving, Adam says "Where's Benjamin?" All the brothers say they don't know, so they leave without him, but much later, when they have to be quiet to stop the avalanche, there's Benjamin and his woman. So how did he get onto the wagon with his woman?


Correction: On the very far right of the screen right before they cut away, Benjamin throws Dorcas in the sleigh and jumps in. You may not see it if it's not in widescreen mode.

Corrected entry: At the end of the movie when the couples are turning around to check with the approval of the fathers, why do Gideon & Alice turn around? Her father is the man marrying all of them.

Correction: How would you or anyone act if five men were holding shotguns to your back? Who can say if this is strange behavior?


Corrected entry: They named the brothers based on alphabetical bible characters, but, not having an "F" name, they improvised with "Frank"incense... But there are enough F names in the bible, Felix, Flint, and even more if you count "Ph" names like Phillip and Philemon.


Correction: First off, they only used names from the Old Testament. Second, they obviously don't count "Ph" names since those start with a "P". "Felix" only appears in the New Testament and "flint" does not appear as a proper name, but just the hard rock. There are in fact, no men in the Old Testament with a proper name starting with "F".


Revealing mistake: In "Wonderful, Wonderful Day" there are live birds flying on the set, but they were confused by the backdrop and several crash into it. (The director acknowledges this in a documentary.)

Trivia: Ever notice how Benjamin never dances? It's because the other brothers were recruited from a dance school, Benjamin was just there for eye candy.

Question: When they are singing under a tree full of doves, it looks like they were tied to the tree branches. Is this true?
