5.0 out of 5 stars Classic, a must have for the kids, 20 April 2004
It was a christmas present that I wanted to get the kids.
Since they put it on, there has been no turning back. It was great in a way to rekindal all of the memories I had as a child watching these films.
At the bargain price, it's a must have purchase.

4.0 out of 5 stars Battle of the sexes, 28 Jun 2005
By 
Janet Raynor (UK) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
An interesting view of the battles of the sexes of the not-so-distant past, and how the movie industry tried to shape our dreams and nightmares. As with many musicals of the mid-twentieth century, the themes of two of these films are around the relationship between women and men: how men catch women, how women get to keep men.
Annie Get Your Gun, with Annie a strong, competent and independent woman, shows one of the biggest capitulations of all in musicals, and is worth watching for that alone (did our parents and grandparents really take in these messages?), but there's also some great music, with the battles fought out in songs such as 'The Girl That I Marry', 'You Can't Get a Man with a Gun', and 'Anything You Can Do I Can do Better'.

Seven Brides for Seven Brothers is a little more subtle (just a little), and overall has better songs and dance scenes (but listen carefully to the words of songs such as 'Sobbin' Women', 'A Woman Ought To Know Her Place', and 'Lonesome Polecat' to see prevailing mysogyny). It's a great film as long as you don't take it seriously.

The exception in this collection is The Wizard of Oz, where women have strong roles, and men - although in far greater number - have mainly supporting roles. Despite this, I found this the most disappointing of the collection. There's really only one good song here ('Over the Rainbow'), and the sentimentalism throughout is a bit cloying.
