The Sound of Music (1965) – Julie Andrews (Richard Rodgers/Oscar Hammerstein II)

The Sound of Music is a cultural cornerstone from which may spring a lifelong appreciation of music. Every child who watches the film experiences the power of music to bring joy, to melt stoic hearts, to foster burgeoning love, to inspire, to entertain, to escape (both figuratively and literally). The opening theme celebrates this essence as Julie Andrews basks in the ways that music touches her soul. As she lilts with musical ardor, it doesn’t matter what one’s musical preferences are—in their own way, anyone who has truly been moved by music knows what she means.
