I just finished watching The Sound of Music, and I'm blown away by the picture quality of this Blu-ray. I want to move to Salzburg, Austria right away.

This was my first time seeing the film in its entirety. When I was in elementary school many years ago, we used to sing the songs during our Friday assemblies, and my elementary school music teacher used to talk about this movie nonstop. Watching this film at long last brought back a lot of pleasant memories of those songs.

I love Eleanor Parker (the Baroness), and this movie makes me want to track down her film noir movies, namely Detective Story and Caged. It goes without saying that Julie Andrews is a sensation, and, just as in Mary Poppins and Torn Curtain, she is a pleasure to see in high definition.

I'm building up a solid Robert Wise collection, with The Day the Earth Stood Still, The Haunting, West Side Story, and The Sound of Music on Blu-ray, and The Body Snatcher, Born to Kill, The House on Telegraph Hill, The Set-Up, and Odds Against Tomorrow on DVD. He's one of the greats.

One more thing...

The Robert Wise commentary track has long stretches where he is not talking, but these scenes feature the isolated score. It's quite magical.

Don't forget Star Trek: The Motion Picture.
