Here Come the Brides – A Christmas Place – (Part Two of Six)

This episode of HCTB originally aired on December 18, 1968. For those of you who have never seen this delightful 60′s series, it was loosely based on the film Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. In this version, in order to keep his mountain from falling into the hands of Aaron Stempel (Mark Lenard), Jason Bolt and his three brothers had to bring 100 eligible brides from Massachusetts and they had to stay for a year. While a premise such as this could have easily turned out to be something silly, it turned out to be just the opposite, often tackling controversial issues along the way. Yet, it managed to stay very entertaining. The first season is available on DVD and we’re patiently waiting for the release of the second season but I’m not sure it will ever see the light of day. Anyway, in keeping with the Christmas them, this is the Christmas episode from the first season. Although it’s okay, I don’t think it’s a true indicator of what the series was about.
