Neither bad nor good, but surely above average
28 July 2004 | by (Cologne) – See all my reviews

It came as no surprise to anyone that all involved should choose to follow 'Die Trapp Familie', one of the most successful German films of the 50's, with a sequel. The result was 'Die Trapp Familie in Amerika' and it literally began where the earlier film left off.

With Ruth Leuwerik reprising her formidable performance as Baronin von Trapp, the producers clearly hoped their subject's on-going story would help swell the studio's coffers once more - it did! Lavishly produced, director W. Liebeneiner turned every single one of the film's galloping clichés into gold. However, the red meat of the Trapp-saga had already been devoured by audiences in Part One - and all that was left second time around were scraps of plot. Spicing it up and helping to make the most of the least were the gorgeous gowns worn by Miss Leuwerik, who looked a treat!
