. . . because nuthin’ says “Merry Anschluß!” like a von Trapp family sing along!
Seriously, it seems that this movie is highlighted around the holiday season. Why is that? Do seven children wearing drapes equate to a Happy Festivus? Is the Abbey a hidden suggestion of Santa’s workshop at the North Pole? Seriously, I don’t get why The Sound of Music seems to be a holiday classic–I’m not complaining. I just don’t see it. Can anyone shed some light?
Maybe it’s Christopher Plummer–he’s always been a jolly elf. Just like in Star Trek VI.
