Deconstruct a beloved movie classic like The Sound of Music, and you’re bound to get some pretty nifty trivia – but you may also hear the Sound of Disillusionment. So before buying this book, fans of the 1965 film should ask themselves how much they really want to know about the behind-the-scenes deceptions and compromises that went into creating one of the most celebrated pieces of escapist movie magic. Are you sure you want to know that the real Von Trapps were less happy than the ones on film? Or that Julie Andrews is practically the only actor whose singing wasn’t overdubbed? Or that Heather Menzies, who played Louisa, went on to pose for Playboy? Those who enjoy such unveilings will have plenty to choose from in The Sound of Music: The Making of America’s Favorite Movie. But those who can’t get enough of their favorite film should simply watch it yet again. B
