Those are really neat. I've watched that movie a ton of times and never noticed most of those. Thanks for sharing. Smile

I'd say "Write yourself a ticket..." but since you technically didn't write it, I suppose I can't hold you responsible......Even though you posted it..... But I must say that I love it that the only triple-header of the year came in a post from our dear Fife.

See....I'd start out with that intention, and get so caught up in the movie that I'd forget to watch for them!

I gotta admit that I skimmed the piece, but didn't read it with a vigilant Fife eye.

Your compassion toward the writers is commendable.

Hey do you guys know that the real Maria appeared in the movie? It's during the scene when Maria was leaving the convent house to head over to the Von Trapp's house, she was singing "I'm in Confidence" song where she was right under the archway thingy, all the way in the back, you will see the real Maria with her daughter and granddaughter walking by. I read it somewhere that said during the filming, the Von Trapp family stopped by and the director Robert Wise offered that part to Maria. Smile

Yes, that's on the special features...that is such a neat little moment! But I didn't know she was with her daughter and granddaughter!!!

I don't think I've noticed a single one of those, EXCEPT for the one where Christopher Plummer can't find the tear. That one is one of the more obvious ones. I'd say they did a pretty great job with this movie, since some of these are so over-the-top nitpicky!! That was super interesting though Rob---THANK YOU for sharing those!! Thumbsup

Wave But LOL, like Savannah I think I'll forget to watch for them too! That movie tends to carry me away. Smile


So, what are some of everyones' favorite scenes? If you had to pick ONE, what would it be?

My #1 favorite scene has got to be the Edelweiss scene. It is SO hard to pick just one favorite, but I just find that SO touching and Christopher Plummer is fantastic in it. The way he looks at Julie....*SIGH* Love

A close second would be the dance between the Captain and Maria on the terrace....ah, THE most romantic thing I have ever seen! happydance

I also love "So Long Farewell" that the children sing to the guests. dancegirl

I DO fast forward a scene, LOL....I really can't stand the scene where Leisel is dancing with Rolph in the gazebo. I don't mind parts of it, but I HAVE to fast forward through the "WHEEEEEEEEEE"!! HeeHee

One scene that always baffled me a little is when Rolph (Rolfe? Rolf? Rolphe?) discovers the Von Trapps hiding in the abbey. The Captain takes his gun away and says, "You'll never be one of them [the Nazis]." He means that in a good way, I'm sure, but there's a bit of a sneer in his voice, as if he's mocking him for being weak and giving in. So naturally Rolph is gonna react to that and yell, "They're here!"

When that scene is coming up, it always makes my stomach get tense......I never could figure out why the Captain did that! Up to that point, it looked like Rolph was hesitant to bring them to the Nazis' attention - but that sneer (such a perfect word for it!) in the Captain's voice was the turning point....If he'd have said that same sentence, "You'll never be one of them", in a different tone of voice, I tend to think that Rolph may have been more likely to have responded in a different way.

Ah, I'm glad I'm not the only one who found that odd.

I'd have had the Captain say, gently, "You were one of us before you were one of them." Then another Nazi would yell offscreen, "They're here!" Rolph would say to the Captain, "Take me with you," and escape along with them.

That would be perfect Rob! It would make MUCH more sense. I agree with both of you, that scene has always been strange to me...Rolph (Rolf? Rolphe? LOL)...we know that he had been brainwashed basically, and it would make sense that he would turn on the Von Trappe family. But I would have liked for one of the Nazis to just have found them, so Rolph didn't have to be the bad guy. It made no sense that the captain egged him on like that. If anything, he would have been proud of Rolph for being a big enough man to let them go. Just no sense at all. No

LOL!! I understand Farmer Girl! HeeHee I do love that actual song though (when it's not sung in operatic Wink ), especially at the end when it's played as they climb the mountains.

Did you ever notice that in Climb Every Mountain, the melody of the line "for as long as you live" is suspiciously like the melody of "like a lark who is learning to pray" in the title song? Richard Rodgers kind of plagiarized himself.

You're right, Rob! I never noticed that before but now that you mention it I know what your talking about.

Yeah, Amy, I don't mind the song at the end, because it fits the scene good. HeeHee

I noticed that a few years ago. I'd just seen the movie, and was kind of singing Climb Every Mountain to myself. It was like: "Every day of your life, for as long as you liiiiiive... I go to the hills, when my heart is lonely." Then I thought: Wait, those are two different songs! They are kind of interchangeable, though.

I thought that the last time I watched the DVD I heard conflicting reports of some of the "behind the scenes" antics. I did know that the real Maria appeared briefly when Julie Andrews was leaving the Abbey and headed to the Von Trapps. I don't think I had heard that her daughter & granddaughter appeared with her. That is so cool!

One thing I did hear was she appeared in the scene because she came along to visit the set lots and lots of times and kinda got herself cast in the movie. I think the thing was she had sold the rights to the story and so she felt she should appear in it. It almost sounded like a well intended but annoying neighbor kind of mode. I'd have to watch the commentary again.

Another thing was reports about how they got Kurt to smile so big in the scene in Maria's bedroom. Julie Andrews said she made him do it but I thought a crewman said that he had. So I'm not sure what the deal was.

I do know overall that the children adored Julie Andrews and I don't blame them. Funny how Julie wasn't much older than Charmaine.

Oh, another movie to report: we finally sat down & saw, "To Kill A Mockingbird." I had the exclamation from my son, "It's in black & white!!!" He really didn't want to watch it but by the end, he thought it was a pretty good movie!

I did get choked up when Atticus lost the case and before he left the courtroom, all of the black people stood as a sign of respect. cryB

Rob, I haven't seen that movie...that is pretty funny though!!

Interesting Misti...I didn't know that Charmaine is only 7 years younger than Julie Andrews!! WOW!


Well, Savannah, you weren't completely off with your 'monumental' anniversary date. It IS the 50th anniversary of the original music, performed by the broadway cast, starring Mary Martin!

We'd better watch it or we will compare "Climb Every Mountain" to "Go Tell It On the Mountain!" Whistle
