Movie synopsis
Starring Julie Andrews, this classic musical features some of the most famous children's songs of all time, including "My Favorite Things," "The Hills Are Alive with the Sound of Music," and "Do Re Me." Set in Austria just before the Nazi takeover, "The Sound of Music" follows the story of a young woman who desires to be a nun, but changes her mind after falling in love with the father of the children she governs. This two-disc set is the 40th Anniversary Edition, and The Von Trapp family harmonizes as well as they always did on this DVD. This classic musical is presented in full color and has been retouched to perfection. There are also special features on this two-disc set, such as separate selections for all of the songs and a reunion section featuring all the Von Trapp family children. "The Sound of Music" is suitable for all ages, and will be enjoyed by all.

Editorial reviews

"...Beloved..." -- Rating: A
Entertainment Weekly - Steve Simels (01/20/1995)

"...Great, gaudy entertainment..."
Entertainment Weekly - Wook Kim (09/08/2000)

5 stars out of 5 -- "Julie Andrews' 1965 heroine is hard to beat...combining innocent enthusiasm with comic timing and a soaring soprano voice."
Empire - Anna Smith (10/01/2007)

4 stars out of 4 -- "The collaboration takes on a serious edge, making it one of the precious few old-school musicals in which the action doesn't grind to a screeching halt every time a song starts."
Premiere - Peter Debruge (12/01/2005)

"It's wonderful....Julie Andrews is irresistible..."
Total Film - Daniel Webb (02/01/2004)

The Sound of Music (2005, DVD)

Set against Hitler's impending WW2 annexation of Austria, this is a story of a young woman,s not cut out to become a nun, who goes to serve as a Nanny in a wealthy home in Salzburg. Maria is sent to care for the children of a widowered Army Austrian Captain and is the light and warmth the children need to blossom. This musical has an unforgettable score of timeless music (The Do Re Mi Song, My Favorite Things, Eidelweiss, The Sound of Music, to name but a few). It is shot on location in Salzburg, Austria. Having been to Salzburg several times, I find that the movie captures the hilly and green beauty of this part of Austria better than any travel film of the area I have ever seen. The wedding scene in Salzburg Cathedral brings this awesome place to life. A wonderful celebration of family, based on a the family Von Trapp's escape from the Nazis.

The Hills are Alive!

Movies are just not like this anymore. Julie Andrews is at her best as the easy-to-love Maria, who leaves her convent to care for seven children. The music is timeless and the story will capture your heart. A long film, even by today's standards, you won't notice three hour time lapse as you join the Von Trapp family again and again. A treat for all ages, this is definetly one to buy.

The Sound of Music

My girls and I love musicals and this one of our many favorites. Had it on VHS and needed to replace on DVD. Seeing it fresh on DVD was great. The sound and color so much better. Music is wonderful, beautiful voices, great story about a real family. Must have for classic movie/musical lover.

The Sound of Music DVD

The Sound of Music comes on TV in my hometown every Easter, but I was frustrated because I could remember some parts that were cut out to allow for more commercials (or to fit in the time slot). Each year I watched on TV, it seemed the movie was shorter and the ads longer. So this year I treated myself to the real thing! And what a treat it is! This is the complete movie. The extras include a wonderful chat with the 7 actors who played the Von Trapp children, and a conversation between Christopher Plummer and Julie Andrews, which felt like a friendly talk, not an interview. There's also a sing-a-long and features about the Von Trapp family and where the movie was filmed. This is a film that should appeal to everyone in your family.

Somebody please SHOOT ME!!!

This is the most HORRENDOUS piece of cinematic garbage I have ever been forced to lay eyes upon. It doesn't matter what format it's on. Whether it be DVD, VHS, Blue Ray Disc or telepathic implant, this movie still makes me want to blow chunks! I first saw this god-awful celluloid atrocity when I was seven. It was movie night. So, we all went out to the movies! I kept hearing from the adults all about "how wonderful this movie was" and "how I will enjoy this musical". When the opening scene comes on the screen, and we all see the beautiful mountains and lush green plains of Salzburg, Austria...and Julie Andrews opens with the verse, "The hills are alive with the Sound of Music", a lead weight just fell to the pit of my stomach. I knew at that moment, that this movie was going to SUCK LIKE A HOOVER UPRIGHT!!! And I wasn't wrong either. It was just awful. And there was no escape either. Because, when I was seven, it was 1973. VCR's didn't exist yet. And if they did, we couldn't afford them. There was no remote to simply SHUT IT OFF! I had to sit there for three nauseating hours! I thought when the Nazis arrived, they might liven things up. Nope! Didn't help! They were goose stepping to a cheezy musical number! Honestly though, "if "Oklahoma" and "South Pacific" are anything like "The Sound of Music", Rodgers & Hammerstein have done more to kill theater than John Wilkes Booth!
