I’d never sat through Sound of Music, The (1965), but I am glad I have now. It was really great even if it was terribly long!
The political overtones were not too terrible, though they did not add too much to the movie, other than Nazi men will sell out their supposed loves, Austrian or not.
So it was good to hear so many wonderfully famous tunes again, even some I had sung in elementary school. And I could use the message too – Stay true to finding yourself and maybe, just maybe you’ll be lead on a road of happiness and crossing mountain ranges with nothing but a picnic basket and a song in your heart.
