Rodgers & Hammerstein's cinematic treasure, The Sound of Music is the winner of five Academy Awards, including Best Picture. In this true-life story, Julie Andrews lights up the screen as Maria, a spirited young Austrian woman who leaves the convent to become a governess for Captain von Trapp's (Christopher Plummer) seven unruly children. Her charm and songs soon win the hearts of the children and their father. But when Nazi Germany unites with Austria, Maria is forced to attempt a daring escape with her new family.
