Cast: Howard Keel, Jane Powell, Jeff Richards, Russ Tamblyn

The great backwoods ’n’ gingham musical was 30-year-old Donen’s seventh film as director. Features unsurpassed choreography by Michael Kidd and a perfect marriage of music and lyrics by Johnny Mercer and Gene de Paul – ‘Lonesome Polecat’ must rate as Hollywood’s funniest ever sob-song. ‘The fresh high-spirited humour of the plotting is irresistible; each and every tune is a charmer; and the dancing – particularly the barn-raising sequence – still stands beyond compare.’ – Judith Crist
