Summary
  • Show boat (1951, 108 min.): When Julie La Verne and her husband Steve Baker are forced to leave the showboat Cotton Blossom, they are replaced by the Captain's daughter, Magnolia, and Gaylord Revenal, a notorious gambler. Magnolia and Ravenal fall in love, marry, leave the boat and move to Chicago. They live off Ravenal's earnings from gambling. After they go broke, Gaylord feels guilty and leaves Magnolia, not knowing she is pregnant
  • Annie get your gun(1950, 107 min.): Annie Oakley is an incredible shot who meets Frank Butler. Frank is the star sharpshoot in 'Colonel Buffalo Bill's Show.' He finds himself falling for Annie, but feels that she is not marriage material. In the end, they both discover that love is wonderful
  • Seven brides for seven brothers (1954, 102 min.): Adam is the eldest of seven brothers who goes to town to get a wife. He convinces Milly to marry him that same day. They return to his backwoods home where she discover he has six brothers - all living in his cabin. Milly sets out to reform the uncouth siblings, who are anxious to get wives of their own. Adam reads about the Roman capture of the Sabine women and develops an inspired solution to his brothers' loneliness
  • Kiss me Kate (1953, 110 min.): Fred is a director and Lilly is an actress who are divorced. They are brought back together by Cole Porter who has written a musical version of Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew. The couple seem to act a great deal like the characters they play. A fight on the opening night threatens the production, not to mention the two thugs who have the mistaken idea that Fred owes their boss money and insist on staying next to him all night
