In 1850 Oregon, when a backwoodsman brings a wife home to his farm, his six brothers decide that they want to get married too.
Jacques d'Amboise's credit includes the acknowledgment "Courtesy New York City Ballet", but he still had to leave before filming was finished because he was under contract with them. A stand-in for him was used during the last few days of filming. You can see someone else playing Ephraim as the brothers are pacing downstairs during the baby's birth.
Now you're takin' this too hard! Everything will work out fine. We'll get a preacher up here someway or another.
Milly: You this that those girls would marry them now? You think it's so easy because I didn't court you or nothin', that that's all there is ...
Takes place largely in Oregon winter, yet in all outdoor scenes no one's breath is visible.
Filmed in two different versions: one in CinemaScope (2:55) and one in a "flat" widescreen (1.77). The CinemaScope version is the one generally screened, but both are available. The main difference between the two versions is a slight difference in angles, some minor differences in sound clarity and finally the "flat" widescreen version features more camera movement in order to capture all the action. Warner Brothers has released a 2-DVD set of this film containing both of these versions.
