Yesterday my roommate and I spent a lazy morning drinking coffee and watching this:
I love old movies. Especially old movie musicals.
And this is one of my all time favorites.
The movie is about 7 brothers who decide it’s time to get married.
Well one decides he needs a wife and then rest aren’t too far behind him.
Sorry I’m terrible at telling what a movie is about with giving away the whole plot.
Anyway, there is this one song in particular that I just love.
(I can’t find a video that I can embed on here, so click the link)
The song is called “Goin Courtin”
Milly (the main female lead) is teaching the brothers how to court a girl.
She talks about being sweet to a girl, setting the right scene to woo a girl, how to talk to a girl, how to dance with a girl, and how to respect a girl.
All while courting a girl.
What happened to that concept?
When guys didn’t just say “Wanna hang out?” as their way of saying I want to spend time with you.
When dancing didn’t involve grinding your pelvis’ together.
When just holding hands was a thrill.
Watching that scene and the one that follows (which involves and amazing dance scene and a barn raising):
Totally makes me which I lived in the 1890s.
I don’t care that life in wilderness probably was awful.
This movie makes it totally doable and picturesque.
I totally want to be courted.
Oh and only 1 day left to enter my first givaway! Go enter! 🙂
