Movies on the Big Screen as They Were Meant To Be Seen.
20th Century Fox,
Dir: Gene Kelly
This irresistible film adaptation - from one of Jerry Herman’s finest musicals - features the fabulous Barbra Streisand in a kick-out-the-jams performance as matchmaker Dolly Levi, furiously working to make marriages while trying to snag bachelor Walter Matthau for herself. Staged with gusto by dancing legend-turned-director Gene Kelly, and featuring a wonderful supporting cast including Tommy Tune, Michael Crawford and jazz legend Louis Armstrong (whose version of the title song is itself worth the price of admission!).
The irresistible, triumphant musical tale of a nun (Julie Andrews) who becomes the nanny for the seven children of widowed Austrian Captain Von Trapp (Christopher Plummer), winning their hearts and eventually their father's as well. As the Nazis take control of their homeland (where “the hills are alive with the sound of music”), the family finds comfort in one another and in song. An Oscar winner for Best Picture and Robert Wise's flawless direction. The Rodgers and Hammerstein score includes "The Sound of Music," "My Favorite Things" and more of your favorite songs! Co-starring Eleanor Parker, Anna Lee, Marni Nixon and Angela Cartwright, with a wonderful script by Ernest Lehman.
