Hello, I hope you are all well? I haven't posted in a while, You're probably wondering where I have been? Well, My laptop broke! Yup! No fun! but thankfully my brother had my old laptop and I managed to fix it! Hooray! Hopefully I can write more blogs again I've missed it! But anyway! I wanted to write today's Blog post about the 1965 film The Sound Of Music, I recently watched it for the first time! I know I know! I'm 24 and I've only now just discovered it! Crazy right?! Well I LOVE it! I've watched it 3 times in one week..... Yeah I have a problem! eek. haha It is simply the best film that has ever been made, The music, The characters, and the beautiful scenery! It's simply perfect!
My favorite song has to be Do-Re-Mi but My favorite Things is a close second! What is yours? All the songs however are catchy and are sure to make you smile! I learned some facts about the film recently as I was reading about the film. They are as follows:
1.) Julie Andrews Nearly Turned down the role due to it's similarity To Mary Poppins.
2.) The real Maria Von Trapp has a cameo In the film.
3.) Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer both had to learn to play guitar for the film.
4.) Julie Andrews tripped when filming 'I Have Confidence' scene, The famous scene when Maria trips after she walks through the gates is accidental but the director liked it so much and thought it added character So kept it in.
My favorite Scene is probably When Maria and The Captain dance together and you see them falling in love! That's such a powerful scene, The chemistry between the two is very strong which makes the scene so much better! I love when The Captain smirks when he sees Maria blush that to me was so sweet!
Another scene I love is the sixteen going on seventeen, With Liesl and Rolf am I the only one that wishes they had got together in the end? I did love the scene! I think it was a very cute. That Gazebo had a lot of romance didn't it?
One day hopefully I'll get to go on The Sound Of Music Tour! But until then I can dream right? I hope you all enjoyed this blog! What do you love about this film? Who's your favorite character/song? Let me know in the comments below and I'll see you all next Saturday! 😃
