  • not enough? too much?

    Sorry, but for this film to qualify as a serious anti Nazi candidate, it would need to be cut to two minutes... far too short for a feature film. No, this is a dreary, unattractive, hyper-artificial programmer that wastes Van Heflin's talent (coming off an Oscar win) and shortchanges the rest of the cast with inane dialogue and the audience with unattractive visuals. Considering the time in which was made, they give the lead actress the same dress in two major scenes... they couldn't go to Lerner's for another outfit? This one defies categorization... one to ten...? Zero.

  • At first glance, a syrup sweet musical--BUT WAIT!

    Concentrate on Van Heflin and his lines--otherwise, this film is so super-sweet you could get diabetes from watching it. But wait for the dialogue just before and after the song about waltzes--about 20-25 minutes in the film. Producer Pasternak introduces an anti-Nazi song(?!) and dialogue between Grayson and a resident of her fathers hotel. Anti-Nazi sentiment is so soft pedaled you could miss it if you weren't looking for it. Since film was released in 1942, I guess Pasternak had approval from higher-ups about the anti-Nazi lines. This sequence wakes film up and film becomes watchable and rather amusing. Van Heflin and Louise Beavers as a cook provide welcome acid to the films' syrupiness. Kathryn Grayson was all of 19 when she filmed this.Because of the unexpected political content, and because the film rights itself after a near disastrous beginning, I give this three stars out of five (barely).

  • MAGICAL DUTCH TREAT!

    "Seven Sweethearts" is a magical movie from the opening scenes showing a quaint little Dutch town, with tulips in every direction. It would have been great to see this movie in brilliant color, just for the flowers and girls attire. Papa is one neat character, doing the best he can to raise a houseful of male-named daughters. Reporter Henry Taggart's response to this "backward" town and way of living is priceless. To visit Little Delft, Michigan and their hotel during their tulip festival would fill you with a lifetime of memories, as does this wonderful movie. Not particularly fond of the singing, but that's the only downfall to this show. ENJOY!!

  • Fairytales anyone?

    I am enjoying this old fashioned love story but I continue to see references to fairytales! Am I over thinking this? Just for a few : Seven Dwarfs, Cinderella,Little Red Riding Hood and Beautyand the Beast. Some of the references are slight. Others more "in your face". Disney Anyone!

  • Sweethearts for everybody

    This is movie is for all the females who love a love story. To me it is like watching a book you just read. I know it is an older movie but you can watch it over and over.
