I have seen the movie and I love it. The storyline is great, and the fact that it is true makes it all the more enjoyable. My heart jumps for joy when he chooses Maria instead of the Baroness for his new wife. I have seen it a couple of times live on stage. I went to a Sing-a-long screening of it as well recently. They had a fashion show to dress up as something from the movie. It was a lot of fun.
I saw the Sound of Music for the first time when it was released in the picture theatres. From memory I wasn't all that old but I remember the beautiful scenery and marvellous songs throughout the film.
I have seen the movie which is refreshing and to some extent historical and seen Austria. The country would take your breath away with the beauty and the history. Any one who lives in Austria is lucky. !
