EDITORS’ NOTES

This Rodgers and Hammerstein musical, about a wayward nun sent to watch over a retired general’s seven children, boasts some of the mid-20th century’s most indelible songs—the ebullient melody lesson “Do-Re-Mi,” the comforting “My Favorite Things,” the jaunty “So Long, Farewell,” and the anthemic title track. Julie Andrews’ tour-de-force performance as the irrepressible Maria anchors the ensemble, with her honeyed soprano giving extra bounce to the playful “The Lonely Goatherd” and adding emotional resonance to the love duet “Something Good.”

Sound of Music in the mid 60's

My mother and older sisters drug me to the theater to see "The Sound of Music" when it first came out on the mid 1960's. I was not keen on musicals then as we'll as now. How ever this movie is NOT your typical musical. It actually has dialog you can understand as we'll as follow. The music actually added to the story. In short, I love it, so it can't be a musical, just a great movie with a lot of good music.
