Movie Review: Sound of Music (1965) *****

Introducing the film to my children on DVD, it is heartwarming to see how a masterpiece stands the test of time. Beautifully produced and directed by Robert Wise, fantastically composed by Richard Rodgers (music/lyrics) and Oscar Hammerstein II (lyrics), and wonderfully played by a shining Julie Andrews, Christopher Plummer and the rest of the cast. The film encompasses so many great values including self-fulfillment, courage, family and parenting, moral and politics, as well as faith, love and hope. The music and song stay with you long after the ending titles as well as the vibrant glow of Andrews. What a delight.
