The Sound of Music

Winner of 5 Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director, Rodgers & Hammerstein’s movie masterpiece remains one of the most beloved, heartwarming screen musicals of all time. A joyous Julie Andrews shines bright as Maria, a free-spirited, song-loving young nun sent to become the governess for a widower (Christopher Plummer) and his seven unruly children (including future Once Upon a Time in Hollywood co-star Nicholas Hammond). But as her boisterous charm wins the hearts of the Von Trapp clan, the dark specter of Nazi Germany approaches.

“One of the movies’ all-time hits, one of the all-time great pictures. It restores your faith in movies. If you sit quietly and let it take, it may also restore your faith in humanity. It does this with infectious wit, with consistent gaiety, with simple and realistic spirituality, with romance of heartbreak and heartmend. This is set against the most beautiful scenery you have seen in your life. The Sound of Music is quite a picture.” – The Hollywood Reporter

“The magic and charm of Rodgers-Hammerstein-Lindsay-Crouse 1959 stage hit are sharply blended in this filmic translation which emerges one of the top musicals to reach the screen. The Robert Wise production is a warmly pulsating, captivating drama set to the most imaginative use of the lilting R-H tunes, magnificently mounted and with a brilliant cast headed by Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer” – Whitney Williams, Variety
