The story is about a young woman travels from home town in Austria to become a maid/nanny for a widowed naval officer. She teaches his children how to sing and enjoy life better. Musical. This is what you call a musical classic, because the sound of music works on characters and well the songs itself.

Another classic musical that manages to be about more than singing and dancing. Julie Andrews gives one of her best performances here and Christopher Plummer is equally good as the austere and commanding Captain Von Trapp.

I generally despise musicals... and this one is no exception. The cinematography may be impressive, but frankly the acting is terrible (I don't know where Christopher Plummer got the idea that he was supposed to play a piece of timber) and the script is in need of a merciless trim. It certainly doesn't help that the whole story is essentially a rehash of 'The King & I' (though, admittedly, that is more the fault of Rodgers and Hammerstein).

CLIMB EVERY MOUNTAIN

I was 7 years old when this movie came out. I was in class (forgot what grade) and sat close to the door. All of a sudden, my mom was calling me from the outside. She literally pulled me out of my class to watch the Sound of Music. I enjoyed it. I guess I enjoyed it more so because I watched it with my mom.

Enough of such nostalgia. My family was always musically minded. I'm musically minded myself. Meaning, it's just in my mind. Seriously, to put notes in dialogues and superimpose it onto a conversational script is a herculean task indeed. Truly, RODGERS AND HAMMERSTEIN deserved all the accolades for all their great works during the golden period of Broadway Shows. And the SOUND OF MUSIC to me is on top of the heap!

Hey, check this SOUND OF MUSIC impromptu..took place at a tr...
