Classic 1960s musical starring Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer. Former nun Maria (Andrews) becomes the governess for a family of seven children who live in the shadow of their domineering and repressed widower father Captain Von Trapp (Plummer). Along with the required discipline Maria brings love, music and excitement into the children's lives and also eventually begins to have an effect on their father. But just when things are looking up, the rise of Nazism and the threat of the coming war darkens all their futures. The cast also includes Charmian Carr, Nicholas Hammond and Eleanor Parker.

But enough of the technicalities of this three hour musical (Intermission Entracte at 1h 42m for 3m). The stars are Rodgers and Hammerstein. With Ernest Lehman’s screenplay well balanced between drama and humour. Robert Wise’s direction keeps the whole thing moving. Superb ideas for the seeing of the songs. The songs, the poetry and the melodies.
I’ve often imagined Messrs Lennon and McCartney having seen an early stage production and each vowing to write a song with a one word, three syllable title as good as my favourite song in the movie: Edelweiss. McCartney would get there with Yesterday whilst John Lennon would leave The Beatles for Imagine to really echo the love and the politics of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s rallying call. Who knows, maybe You Are Sixteen Going on Seventeen became She Was Just Seventeen?
But I digress. I wonder how many ladies out there who love this film see it as the coming together of two Individuals? Two rebellious souls in there own way. How do you catch a cloud and pin it down? The problem of Maria. How many understand the movie as a rendition of the message that you should always try to find the life you were born to live? A nineteen sixties movie. Free will for the creative spirit. Escaping the cruelties of fascism. Being dictated to.
I had a massive tingle around my shoulders as the title song crept in. They were happier times than now. Before Our Favourite Things became the latest gadget. We lost each other in the struggle to get on.
episodes of 'What happened after.' The scenery and home of the children and the Baron are also breathtaking. Enjoy!
