Something to think about

My daughter has been learning some songs from “The Sound of Music” (the classic 1965 film starring Julie Andrews), and my wife and I thought it would be a good idea to rent the movie from Blockbuster so that my daughter could gain some context on the songs she was singing.

After cruising the aisles at Blockbuster for a few minutes, I could not find the movie, and stopped by the front desk so that they could point me in the right direction. 

It turns out that I had been looking in the wrong sections (Drama and Family).  I don’t know if all Blockbusters have their movies categorized this way, but the one by my house considers The Sound of Music to be a Comedy.

If I recall correctly, despite some cheery tunes, the overarching movie theme involved the Holocaust, and ends with the Von Trapp family fleeing the country to avoid being captured by the Germans. How is that funny?

    "Springtime for Hitler & Germany,

    Winter for Poland & France." Maybe they thought since both "The Producers" & "Sound of Music" are musicals that Sound of Music must be a comedy too.  Or more likely, we have a serious history education gap with the next generation! 🙁
