When a young girl's fancy turns to thoughts of Seven Brides For Seven Brothers. Spring Spring Spring! Every. SINGLE. Year. It's a tradition, and will forever remain a tradition. This March was no different. I was especially interested to note the recurrence of Pendleton Woollen Mills in This MGM classic. Filmed in 1954 and set in 1850 Oregon, the feature's creative team made an appropriate decision to feature Pendleton (if not, then very similar to Pendleton) blankets. Ignoring the fact that PWM began producing around 15 years later, I say hats off to authenticity! Just one more reason to love Pendleton.
