This movie needs a ten star-review. Despite its enchanting songs and story telling, it contrasts with the Anschluss plot. That somber period of Nazi Germany's annexation of Austria. "While The Sound of Music was in tryouts in Boston, Richard Rodgers felt Captain von Trapp should have a song with which he would bid farewell to the Austria he knew and loved. Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II decided to write an extra song that Captain von Trapp would sing in the 'Kaltzberg Festival' (Salzburg Festival in the film) concert sequence towards the end of the show. As they were writing it, they felt that this song could also utilize the guitar-playing and folk-singing talents of Theodore Bikel, who had been cast originally as the Captain (Christopher Plummer eventually got the job).

This is a review of the 50th anniversary blu-ray ultimate collection.

This is like watching the movie again for the first time!

Blu ray disc 2: Special features--***** I never had the 40th anniversary edition, so most of the stuff here is new to me.

This is one of my favorite movies. I always look forward to it being on tv around Christmas, and I purchased the DVD so I can watch it anytime. No one can hold a candle to Julie Andrews singing. She is so good! And the clarity of both sound and image on this DVD is stunning, much better than when I would watch it over the air (and no commercial interruptions)! While I don't watch this all the time, it was worth purchasing it so I can watch it as often as I like.
