Loved this film, and I am not a lover of the musical genre. I was an army brat in Germany when this film debuted and we actually went to Salzburg Austria and saw the Von Trapp family mansion. Great acting by all, the music and score is just superb!!!

The Sound of Music is one of the best classic musicals. I never tire of watching it as it nicely incorporates the musical interludes with the storyline.

Never appreciated this movie when it came out but I find that as I get older I enjoy it more and more.

So while most children were obsessing over Disney movies like Cinderella and The Little Mermaid, I was watching The Sound of Music every weekend. In addition to the Disney movies I should add.    Maria, a nun, is sent to be the governess for all seven children of the vonTrapp family.  They've been known to misbehave and dislike their previous governesses, but Maria wins them over by taking them to the countryside and teaching them about music.    The …

This lovely new 40th Anniversary 2-disc edition of THE SOUND OF MUSIC is a real treat. But, for those in a quandry about buying yet another DVD release of the film (following the "Five Star" 2-disc edition), I say, buy this version but keep the old one too, because it has some great extras that were not ported onto this new edition (more about that later).    THE SOUND OF MUSIC is of course based on the long-running 1959 hit Broadway musical that originally starred Mary Martin. …

Most of you know what the movie is about, so we won't rehash that. While the movie sometimes gets a ribbing for it's too sweet of a story, things aren't always rosy as the family encounters the Nazis. Anyway, Twentieth Century Fox "climbed every mountain, followed every rainbow" and created the two-disc 40th Anniversary Edition DVD of the Oscar-winning film South of Music. The cast reunites for the first time in 20 years to celebrate and share memories, old and new.    Julie …

Pros: scenery, music     Cons: some of the story     The Bottom Line: I still highly recommend it, however.           The Oracle says: Richard Haydn has a Bacon number of 2.    Richard Haydn was in Adventures of Bullwhip Griffin, The (1967) with Roddy McDowall    Roddy McDowall was in Big Picture, The (1989) with Kevin Bacon ***      First of all let me say that you could probably …

Pros: Great songs and drama     Cons: It is a long movie so plan for it     Children really love this movie; when my two daughters were young they would watch this movie over and over again. This movie was made back in the 60's and really I don't know of another movie that I can compare it to. If you have never seen this movie before, then I suggest that you pick it up. You and your children will really enjoy this movie. There are several fabulous songs that …
