Episode 341: Hills and Valleys
In 1959 Rogers and Hammerstein’s musical "The Sound of Music" opened on Broadway to be followed by the Hollywood film version in 1965. And starting at that time we were all imprinted with the words, “the hills are alive with the sound of music.” If you’re a movie buff, you can remember that long opening shot where the camera zooms and pans across the hills around Salzburg Austria, with the mountains in the background, all to the sound of the wind and birds. It was amazing cinematography, and what a franchise!
