Sound of Music
The Sound of Music (1965 Twentieth Century Fox) Starring: Julie Andrews, Christopher Plummer The hills certainly are alive with the sound of music as Robert Wise takes this Broadway-winning musical and envelopes the cinematic world! Certainly one of the most popular musicals of all time, this Rodgers and Hammerstein-scored film is the story of Maria, who gives up her religious vows and becomes a governess to the children of the Baron Von Trapp. She finds the early insurrmountable obstacles of taking care of the children to be not so insurrmountable, as she plies her musical abilities and charm to win over the entire family. Set in Salzburg, Austria, as the Nazis are fast engulfing the European continent, the Von Trapps will have no part of this political and military madness. And, of course, the climactic scene of their escape from the Nazis, too, is unforgettable!
