"What are we going to do about Maria?"

     This Rodgers and Hamerstein block- buster is probably the most popular movie of all time, in spite of being called "corny" by some critics. Julie Andrews is flawless as Maria, a "nun in training" who is sent by her convent to be a nanny to the children of a widowered Austrian nobleman just before World War II begins. Christopher Plummer as the Baron von Trapp and Eleanor Parker, as a society woman with her sights set on marriage to the baron, are adequate. The children are delightfully talented and charming. The film is based on the real-life experiences of the von Trapp family, who fled Austria to escape Nazi rule after the German annexation of Austria. The film received five Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Director. Another film, called "The Amazing von Trapp Family" was produced a few years earlier without the music or the big-name stars.

1965, Directed by Robert Wise
