Description
A postulant named Maria (a charming and radiant Julie Andrews) is sent to the house of a retired naval captain (Christopher Plummer) to help care for the widower's seven children—and when she leads them in song, music is brought back into the hearts and home of the Von Trapp family. Maria and the Captain soon fall in love, but there are a few problems: he is engaged, she is a postulant, and the Nazis are overtaking Austria. Adapted from Rodgers and Hammerstein's Broadway smash, the 1965 musical won Academy Awards for best picture, director, score, and editing. Its wondrously filmed musical sequences include the famed helicopter shots of the Alps as Andrews sings the title song and the long, stunning montage of the cavorting children singing "Do-Re-Me." (Incidentally, the poignant "Eidelweiss," strummed by Plummer, was the last song Oscar Hammerstein ever wrote.) The DVD extras include a fascinating running commentary by director Robert Wise.
