Aroview: Enduring Rogers and Hammerstein musical based on the real-life Von Trapp family, who deserted their homeland to escape the Nazis. Box-office bonanza won 5 Oscars including Best Picture, and made Julie Andrews a bona fide star.
2 stars (Good Try) Pure Hollywood.Best scenes are the opening one before Julie strides into the picture and the final one when the humans have pushed off. Some of the songs are mushy and are not R & H's best. The plot has too many flat bits. Salzburg looks great though.~tubbs
