The Sound of Music – 1965 – dir. Robert Wise

Only The Sound of Music and the great Julie Andrews can make me break my vow to never write about a film in the first person.

I remember as if it was yesterday, walking the happy mile from my house to the Strand Theater in downtown Lowell to see The Sound of Music. I was to walk that happy mile at least 8 or 9 times more to see it again and have seen it dozens of times since. I never get tired of it, watched it recently, as if for the very first time. It is as fresh as the day it was made, a steady friend to anyone who loves its company.
