The Hills are Alive...

Happy 50th Anniversary
Sound of Music!

In my vast knowledge bank, 

I did not know that this was 
originally a Broadway Production 
starring Mary Martin and Theodore 
Bikel. It was a five time winner at 
the 14th Annual Tony Awards.

The Broadway version was adapted 

as a film musical in 1965 starring 
Julie Andrews and Christopher 
Plummer. It won five Academy 
Awards.  This is the one I remember 
as a child and continue 
to enjoy as an adult.

My favorite scenes are:


The thunderstorm and the song

"My Favorite Things."

The children running about town

and climbing trees in clothes she
made from their drapes.

When Maria and the Captain

realize that they are in love.

When Elsa leaves because the

Captain doesn't love her.

When the Nuns "fix" the 

Nazi's car so it won't run.

As much as I have seen this,

I still think the Nazis are
going to capture them but
NO they get away and move
on.

  1. I know I'm the exception, but I don't like the Sound of Music and have only seen it once.

  4. A few weeks back Diane Sawyer had a special about the 50th Anniversary of the Sound of Music. It was SO good!

  5. It is a fun movie, but I always think it drags a little with the Nazi part. (I guess I just like the fun parts more with the kids!)

  7. The Sound of Music is one of my favorite movies. Oh that Captain Von Trapp is so handsome!! I love the part when Maria is showing Frederick (I think) how to waltz & the Captain cuts in.

  8. Definitely a classic and nobody will ever be able to redo it satisfactorily in my mind. Only one Maria!
