THE SOUND OF MUSIC ($35) stands as one of the greatest accomplishments in movie musicals- a timeless film has come to appeal to millions of fans, across several generations, in the three and half decades since it was first released. This lush production benefits from superb 65mm Todd-AO cinematography, which shows the Austrian locations in all their glory, as well as having one of the most memorable Rodgers and Hammerstein scores to ever grace any motion picture and the assured direction of the legendary Robert Wise.

THE SOUND OF MUSIC tells the story of a young postulate named Maria (Julie Andrews), who isn’t necessarily an asset to the Abbey in which she lives. Since the Mother Abbess (Peggy Wood) is unsure of Maria’s future as a nun, she decides to send her out into the world, where she secures her a position as a governess for the seven children of the widowed Captain von Trapp (Christopher Plummer). When Maria arrives in the von Trapp home, she finds the Captain a harsh martinet, who treats his children as though they were sailors under his command. Although Maria’s exuberance turns the Captain’s ordered existence into chaos, she melts through his icy exterior and restores the loving relationship between him and his children. It is also during this time that Maria wins the Captain’s heart and finds out where her destiny lies. The wonderful cast of THE SOUND OF MUSIC also features Eleanor Parker, Richard Haydn, Peggy Wood, Charmian Carr, Daniel Truhitte, Heather Menzies, Nicholas Hammond, Duane Chase, Angela Cartwright, Debbie Turner, Kym Karath, Ben Wright, Anna Lee, Marni Nixon and Norma Varden.
