6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Matthew G. Sherwin on June 6 2004
Format: DVD
It's very hard to know where to begin when praising both this movie as well as the double "digi-pack" DVD of it. Julie Andrews gives a very strong performance as Maria, a misfit nun who is turned out into the world by the Reverand Mother to see if she really wants to be a nun. Her singing range of 4 octaves is beautifully displayed at the end of the song "Do-Re-Mi." Christopher Plummer is well cast as the Captain von Trapp who is not too likeable--yet is charmed into being a man again be Maria's infectious inner and outer beauty. The rest of the cast is well chosen and the viewer is treated to a rare screen performance by Marni Nixon; Marni dubbed vocals for Deborah Kerr in The King and I and she did dubbing for My Fair Lady and South Pacific as well. The second disc contains two fantastic documentaries about Salzburg, the city in Austria where many scenes were filmed, as well as the production and history of the film. The history of the real-life von Trapp family on whom the story is based is well laid out with revealing interviews from family members themselves. In addition, the cinematography is superlative. Very honestly, I cried at the end of the film and I NEVER cry--it's THAT touching! This is NOT a film to be sneered at as being sugary sweet. It's a classic tale of good triumphing over evil as the von Trapp family flees Austria to escape the Nazis.(...)

This movie is without a doubt the best movie ever made! The Sound of Music has a combination of wonderful cast (Julie Andrews, Christopher Plummer, Eleanor Parker, Charmian Carr etc., etc., etc.,) It also has stunning views of Austria and is one of the most romantic love stories. I have seen many movies and musicals and not one of them inspired me like the Sound of Music. The DVD is great with lots of extras just like the Five Star edition. Its packaging is beautiful and the widescreen version of it is amazing. The Sound of Music is a must for anyone that ever set foot on this planet. This is not America's most loved and cherished film for no reason. Everyone needs to see it at least once and I would strongly suggest buying this stunning classic. R&H's last musical was their greatest. The Sound of Music is packed with wonderful songs, everyone one of them classics, known around the world. "Edelweiss", "My Favorite Things", "So Long, Farewell", "Do-Re-Mi", "The Sound of Music"... these songs are all classics that will continue to bring a smile to chidren's and adult's faces for years to come. There is something about it that just makes you smile and watch it over and over again. The wonderful morals of love conquers all, and what trusting in God can do ring loud and clear. Whoever came up with the slogan "The Happiest Sound in all the world," back in 1965 when the movie came out was definatly right. This movie still is enormously popular even today and it proves that the Sound of Music clearly is still, and forever will be, "The Happiest Sound in all the World!"

I was one of those people that would never give this movie a chance . All I kept thinking was the NBC commercial with Julie Andrews running on a hill singing "the hills are alive with the sound of music." How dreadful the prospect of ever seeing this.
I initially bought this for my wife, who loved it, and because of this kind gesture, I was forced to watch it. To my suprise, I loved it. It's not a corny musical but a musical with romance, humor & suspence. What more can you ask for? I loved it so much I bought it on DVD for superior sound and picture quality, which I got with this DVD.
I have to thank the "Sound of Music." I have become more open to many other older movies.
The acting is superb by the main characters. The children's acting is off at times, but I don't exprect much from kids from that era. No big deal. And yes great songs that will stick in your head long after you have watched it.

I love this movie! It's one of those you buy for your kids AND yourself and know you'll be watching it for years to come! It's a timeless classic, one you almost feel the obligation to share with future genrations! I've shown it to two of my classes already!

Best Opening in Motion Picture History!!! Aug. 30 2006
By Richard Mahone - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
As far as the film goes, the finest ever. But without a doubt the opening helicopter shot is the best in any film. So amazing to see that helicopter descend upon Julie twirling it just makes my heart leap everytime I see it. The story we've all heard her tell about the downdraft from the copter endlessly leveling her until they got the shot always comes to mind when I see it. Never again will a film be produced that has the majesty and scope of this picture. It has it all. Period.

Classic movie! Oct. 18 2011
By Mary Claire Fredette - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
The movie is a classic, one that we watch as a family every year. It's great to be able to talk about Nazi Germany with the children so they understand somewhat what the Haloucost was. Apparently a lot of American teenagers have never heard of Adolf Hitler or mass murder of hundreds of thousands of innocents.

But I digress. The movie is well done, funny in parts, and the singing is lovely. It's fun to see Julie Andrews as a young woman (despite the worst hairdo ever). :)

THE SOUND OF MUSIC Feb. 25 2015
By gobirds2 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
So much comes to mind when I think of THE SOUND OF MUSIC. It is jubilant, heartbreaking and ultimately uplifting to the spirit, this film demonstrates and is a tribute to all the goodness there is in the world and what life has to offer and what we can strive for. I saw this film when I was a little boy and well it was good I suppose but it has grown to mean much more to me with each passing year. There is goodness and love and tragedy in the world as I have now come to realize but when your spirits are low you can return to this film and remember and savor the lessons you have learned and reflect back and see parallels in the images that you once never truly saw. For a film that is greatness I suppose. Someone recently reintroduced me to this film and it has taken on a whole new meaning for me. Happiness is where you find it and make it. The one character that left an indelible image with me was Rolfe (Daniel Truhitte). Captain Von Trappe (Christopher Plummer) implores him to "Come with us." Rolfe had his chance to live life as a human being but he chose otherwise and in doing so gave up his chance for happiness. As a viewer, choose happiness and indulge yourself in this film. You will truly take away something of value each time you view it.

Such great talents are associated with this film. The prolific Robert Wise once again demonstrated his vast array of directorial talents (THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL, EXECUTIVE SUITE, THE HAUNTING, WEST SIDE STORY, ODDS AGAINST TOMORROW, RUN SILENT, RUN DEEP) being able to produce yet another gem regardless of the genre. That is a rare thing and Wise certainly seemed like the man for that job on this film given his gentle demeanor and eye for good storytelling. Screenwriter Ernest Lehman is another prolific talent with screenplays for EXECUTIVE SUITE, SABRINA, NORTH BY NORTHWEST and THE KING AND I to his name. Production Designer Boris Leven also was another prolific fellow with production designs such as GIANT, JOHN PAUL JONES and WEST SIDE STORY to his name. The entire cast is excellent. Julie Andrew's naïve yet intuitive qualities as Maria matched against the outwardly stern and overtly proud Christopher Plummer as Captain Von Trappe, who's personalities must eventually come together in order for them to become life loved partners is brilliantly performed by these two. Particular note should be made to Richard Hayden's performance as Max Detweiler Von Trappe's friend otherwise talent agent who acts as the liaison with the audience with his wry visual expressions.
