The Sound of Music -- Sing-along with your favorite songs in this special Sing-Along Edition!  Rodgers & Hammerstein's cinematic treasure, "The Sound of Music" is the winner of five Academy Awards, including Best Picture. In this true-life story, Julie Andrews lights up the screen as Maria, a spirited young Austrian woman who leaves the convent to become a governess for Captain von Trapp's (Christopher Plummer) seven unruly children. Her charm and songs soon win the hearts of the children - and their father. But when Nazi Germany unites with Austria, Maria is forced to attempt a daring escape with her new family.
