One of the most beloved movie musicals of all-time, The Sound of Music had all the makings of a successful film.

With memorable Rodgers and Hammerstein songs, lush background locations, a talented cast, an experienced production team, a preceding popular stage production, and most importantly, a wholesome, sentimental story.

Yet the international blockbuster that resulted when all these elements finally came together in the spring of 1965 was altogether greater than anyone could have imagined, on its release it even surpassed Gone With the Wind as the number one box office hit of all time.

The story follows a good-natured, flighty nun (Julie Andrews) who is hired to care for the seven awkward children of an icy, militaristic, widowed Austrian captain (Christopher Plummer).

She eventually wins the heart of the children - and ultimately the captain, but their lives are threatened by the encroachment of Nazis.
