Subject: The Sound of Music

Written By: Stompgal on 12/10/05 at 2:39 pm

I've borrowed it this year and it's wonderful. This is probably my favourite song from it:

Doe. A deer. A female deer.
Ray. A drop of golden sun.
Me. A name I cal myself.
Far. A long long way to run.
Sew. A needle pulling threead.
La. A note to follow so.
Tea. A drink with jam and bread
That'll bring us back to do.

Do Re Mi Fa So La Ti Do

DoD ReE MiF FaG SoA LaB TiC DoD

Above, I typed the notes as if I were playing the keyboard.

Being a somewhat macho kinda guy I boycotted this movie because it wasn't my type of guy flick, then I buckled, broke down and watched it with the wife & daughter, as a diplomatic gesture of course and loved it!!! Especially since it takes place in Austria, a land my mother grew up in.

The new sing-along DVD version has just been released, but I prefer watching as a musical.


Yes, I prefer the musical too!  :)

Douglas Adams tried to start a campaign via a magazine column he wrote to get a better line here.  Not sure if he ever got any suggestions

I remember watching the Sound of Music as a kid. (I must get it on DVD) my favorite Part of the movie is when the nuns were helping then escape from the Nazi.  The line goes (If memory serves me right) "Forgive me Reverend Mother for I have sinned" Reverend Mother responds with "What is it my child" The nun then holds up the starter(I think) for the Nazi's car. :)

I like that part, too. FYI, one of those nuns-Anna Lee used to be Lila Quartermaine from General Hospital (who just passed away a few years ago.  :\'( ) 

I have the movie on video which I haven't watching in a few years.

Another FYI, after the Von Trapp family left Austria, they came to the U.S.-specifically, Vermont. In fact, the Von Trapp family is still very much in the public eye. They own the Trapp Family Lodge and many of them are still in the music business.

The website gives a family history. Very interesting.

With my maternal family having strong roots in Germany (they all grew up there and speak German, etc..) this movie has always been a family favourite. The movie takes place in Austria, but whatever.

Some of the commentary on the dvd is done by johannas von trapp.  He explains things the musical left out.  Like how they did not go over the mountains because they would have ended up in nazi territory.  They went by train instead.
