Movies have changed a lot since I was a child. It is entertaining to watch things that my husband and I loved as children and see what our children think of them. It fills us with a sense of accomplishment when they fall in love with our childhood favorites.
We recently shared The Sound of Music with our children for the first time. I was so curious to see what they would think. Princess A and Mr. C were literally silenced as the movie began. The music began and immediately captured their interest. I certainly expected this from our little girl, but have to admit I was surprised my Mr. C’s reaction. Both of them loved that there was so much singing and liked that “they talked by singing”. They were captivated by the children in the story as well.
The Sound of Music is “the world’s most beloved family film” and won five Academy Awards in 1965, including Best Picture…which is really saying something in my opinion. Julie Andrews plays Maria, a young women with her own spirit and ideas, who fills the von Trapp home with music and genuine love. This true story will warm the hearts of this generation just as it did 45 years ago.
Help celebrate the 45th Anniversary of The Sound of Music by sharing it with your children in your home. The 45th Anniversary Edition is available in a Blu-Ray/DVD Combo pack and makes a fantastic Christmas present for children of all ages. And don’t forget those lovely grandparents! What a great gift to have your children get for them; grandparents and grandchildren will love watching The Sound of Music together! The Sound of Music can be purchased at Target, Walmart, and Amazon.
