Produced and directed by Robert Wise in 1965 adapted from the 1959 stage musical of the same name, this American musical drama depicts the life of a young Austrian postulant in Salzburg, Austria, in 1938 who serves the seven children of a retired naval officer and widower as governess.
The breathtaking landscapes, the dazzling performances, and the world's best-loved songs all look and sound better than ever in this fully restored and digitally remustered DVD release of the most popular film of all time!

The Observer has seen this drippy movie three times, trying to figure out what people like about it, without success, unless it's sheer sentimentality. Don't waste your time.

A classic? Most definitely.

The music is outstanding. The scenery is exquisite and the story has spanned the generations.

This one definitely deserves its status as a classic. The music, dancing, and acting are great, and I went from tearing up at parts, to laughing, to singing, to actually holding my breath as the tension built, to laughing out loud again. I had seen bits and pieces of this story over the years, but had never seen it from beginning to end, and I'm so glad that I can now say that I have.

I have watched this movie more than 10 times. Our 8 year old has watched it even more and sings along. One of the best movies we have watched. It is a movie to have so we bought the DVD.

Maria: "I can't seem to stop singing wherever I am. And what's worse, I can't seem to stop saying things - everything and anything I think... and feel..." Mother Abbess: "Some people would call that honesty." Maria: "Oh, but it's terrible, Reverend Mother."

Captain von Trapp: "It's the dress. You'll have to put on another one before you meet the children." Maria: "But I don't have another one. When we entered the abbey our worldly clothes were given to the poor." Captain von Trapp: "What about this one?" Maria: "The poor didn't want this one."

I'm ten, and I think your dress is the ugliest one I ever saw!" Kurt: "Brigitta, you shouldn't say that!" Brigitta: "Why not? Don't you think it's ugly?" Kurt: "Of course, but Fraulein Helga's was ugliest."
