The Sound of Music

Film, Drama
Reactionary pap the story may be, but Wise’s blockbuster musical is still grossly underrated (and frequently knocked by those who’ve never seen it). It’s superbly edited and shot, Ernest Lehman’s script keeps things moving along nicely, the Nazi threat is neatly handled, Andrews makes for a surprisingly determined heroine (even if her aim is merely to care for kids and stand by her man), and Eleanor Parker steals the show. This new digital print should do justice to that stunning mountaintop camerawork.
