Every year Hollywood releases humdreds of movies. Some are great, some are good and some are best forgotten. These movies though rarely stand the test of time such as musicals do. Of the musicals The Sound of Music remains as popular today as it did when first released. Every year brings new fans to this outstanding movie.
It is only loosely based on the Von Trapp Family Singers as it played fast and loose with the time frame of the pivotal events in the Von Trapp family history. This does not detract from the movie in the slightest.
That the OST is still available over 40 years after its release is a testament to inherent beauty.
Listen and enjoy
