What is there really to say about The Sound Of Music other then Gwen Stefani sampled “The Lonely Goatherd” in her hit “Wind It Up” from her last studio album The Sweet Escape? There's so much to say. I wish I'd known I was writing this and I would have taken notes.
Christopher Plummer slays by the way, I'm slick obsessed with him. He was kind of hot in this movie in a protective kind of way. If your into being sheltered and cared for. It's good. He was the stereotypical dad knows best.
This movie is so family friendly, wholesome, entertainment. That's why the soundtrack sold so many copies. This movie is built on reprisals of quality songs sung by different people. It can be a little much. This movie is almost three hours long. Thank God we have learned to cut movies down. Watching this again was an experience.
This was the star vehicle for Julie Andrews. Queen of Genovia. Julie Andrews was already a star, but this was the movie that solidified it all. She was the young nun Maria. This replaced Gone With The Wind as the highest grossing movie of all time. This was a cultural revolution the way Glee was.
The one thing this movie reminded me of is how much I hate children. They were all kind of terrible. The only thing that really warmed my heart is that Liesl didn't end up with that Nazi. Praise. The only love we need is between the outspoken governess and the stern captain.
My favorite character and most certainly the person I would be if I was in this movie would be the Baroness. She's evil. But, she's not too evil. The worst thing she does is tell Maria that the Captian is in love with her. The horror of it all. She's manipulative, but she knows when she's beat. I love it. I have respect for her.
The Baroness was played by Eleanor Parker, who deserves a separate Throwback Thursday herself. She was Hollywood glamour. I enjoy her performances. She died a few years ago at the age of 91. I really like her. She was beautiful, she was sensual.
