A moderately entertaining musical, based on Aristophanes but not unlike MGM's SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN BROTHERS of the previous year, this centers on the feuds among the men of the little town of Osawkie, Kansas, and the men of neighboring villages. It seems they all want to get possession

of a safe full of county records. The women, however, have had enough of the men's brawling and barricade themselves in a fort, cutting off all bedroom activities. Love is more powerful than war, and the feuding stops. Songs include: "Lysistrata," "Send Us a Miracle" (sung by Keith Andes), "My

Love Is Yours," "Travellin' Man," "What Good Is a Woman Without a Man?" "There's Gonna Be a Wedding" (Pony Sherrell, Phil Moody), "The Second Greatest Sex" (Jay Livingston, Ray Evans, sung by Bert Lahr), "How Lonely Can I Get?" (Joan Whitney, Alex Kramer, sung by Kitty Kallen).
