According to the website when the film was released it took the world by storm and earned 5 Oscars. “For millions of people the film is the rare combination of a powerful and moving story, first rate music, and breathtaking scenery of Salzburg! The musical tells the story of Maria, who takes a job as governess to a large family while she decides whether to become a nun. She falls in love with the children and their widowed father, Captain von Trapp. He is ordered to accept a commission in the German navy, but he opposes the Nazis. He and Maria decide to flee from Austria with the children.”
