The Sound of Music

  • Dir: Robert Wise

  • USA, 1965, 174minmins

  • Cast: Julie Andrews, Christopher Plummer

The most wholesome musical ever. With Nazis. And nuns. Where the heroes are barely-repressed militarists and the major love interest a novice nun. And endless children who constantly jockey for any attention with only enough irony in side characters to keep the sugar level in check (we NEED the cynicism of Max and the Baroness). But oh the music, which has become backgrounds around the world for the last half century. If you don’t think so, try NOT to complete the lyrics “Doe, a deer, a female deer…”

1966 5 Academy Awards including Best Picture and Best Director
