“Fraulein, is it to be at every meal, or merely at dinnertime, that you intend on leading us all through this rare and wonderful new world of… indigestion?” – Captain Von Trapp
Number of Times Seen – No clue (Video, cable, DVD and 6 Jun 2013)
Brief Synopsis – A nun is hired to be a governess for 7 children of a former Austrian naval officer. Her positive look on life helps to change the demeanor in the house.
My Take on it – As a kid, my mother loved this movie and we would watch it in our house many times a year. I know the music very well and the songs resonate in my ears whenever I think of this movie.
Julie Andrews was great in this movie and definitely brought a cheerful demeanor to the Von Trapp household. As was Christopher Plummer as Captain Von Trapp.
Based on the play of the same name that won a Tony Award in 1960.
Winner of 5 of 10 Oscars (Picture, Director, Sound, Film Editing and Music Score) It lost Best Actress (Julie Andrews) and Best Supporting Actress (Peggy Wood as the head nun), Art Direction, Cinematography and Costume Design.
Although I have never seen it, I have heard that Doctor Zhivago (1965) was better. I’ll let you know once I see it.
Bottom Line – Great musical, fun movie. A true classic! Highly recommended
Rating – Oscar Worthy
