    Big Screen Classics: THE SOUND OF MUSIC

    Julie Andrews plays Maria, a postulant in Nonnberg Abbey who isn't quite suited to being a nun. Her fate changes when widowed Austrian Navy Captain Georg von Trapp (Christopher Plummer) requests a governess to be sent to care for his seven mischievous children. A naval officer before a father, von Trapp has his house running more like a ship than a home: whistle blows announcing meetings, his children dressed in sailor-suits, ordering everyone around. It initially seems that Maria has given up one set of strict rules for another, but the more times she spends with the von Trapp children - and they with her - the more she is able to bring them together as a fun, fancy-free family. At first to the chagrin of Captain von Trapp, but soon he, too, begins to see the value of the sound of music.
