SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN BROTHERS (dir: Stanley Donen, Not Rated) - Bart says, "I'm a big, strong man, but I have no trouble confessing that I love musicals. And musicals just don't get their due at our store, dammit. Most people who delve our extensive collection of Hollywood classics usually bring home a Cary Grant screwball comedy or a John Ford western or any old 'B' noir with a suitably menacing cover. Go for a musical, buddy! How better to fill a few reels of celluloid with sync sound than with lots and lots of singing and dancing and colors and spectacle? Everybody's heard of SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN BROTHERS, but have you ever seen it? The music's good ('Bless Your Beautiful Hide,' anyone?), the story's great (if there's a special lady out there for you, why not just take her?), and the choreography's spectacular (I defy you to find dancing this exciting and athletic in any Gene Kelly movie). It's in our 'Show Stoppers' section, so rent it today!"

MAGNIFICENT OBSESSION (dir: Michael Powell, Not Rated) -  Michelle says, "It predates Sirk’s more successful Rock Hudson and Jane Wyman pairing in the lovely ALL THAT HEAVEN ALLOWS, but you’ll appreciate the lovebirds more in this indulgent melodrama if you see the later flick first. Sirk’s aesthetic is bright colors, fabulous lifestyles, strong handsome men, and beautifully weeping widows, and this film doesn’t disappoint as we watch a careless bachelor inadvertently widow and blind a strong-willed woman, then reinvent himself to capture her heart. It’s never less than ridiculous, but like Sirk’s other intense romances, it’s a lot of fun."
