Trivia

This show was based on the eponymous 1954 MGM musical, which was in turn based on Stephen Vincent Benét's 1937 short story "The Sobbin' Women"--which was itself based based on the ancient-historical story of the abduction and rape of a group of Sabine women by Roman men. See more »

Wholesome show that is still relevant
3 April 2010 | by fidgeeSee all my reviews

I admit, I loved this show because I loved the original musical, but I was sad to see it go away to be kept in some dust-covered bin in a Hollywood storage vault! Regardless of all my friends teasing me because they thought it was a "corny show", I couldn't wait to see each episode! (I was raised by my grandparents so perhaps that's why I've always been drawn to the more reserved, wholesome, and yes, sometimes "corny" stuff.) I wish some studio exec would recognize that there are plenty of networks out there now (ie: Hallmark, ABC Family, Nic....) that have the perfect format for shows like this. If there had been more than just the "Big three" networks around when the show was produced, it would have had a better chance. But it's sad to think of it wasting away when it could be entertaining and influencing a new (and not-so-new) audience.
