The Sound of Music


    The hills are alive! This week we explore one of the 11 films to hold the title of Highest Grossing Film of all time: The Sound of Music. We attempt to understand this movie’s incredible staying power and ask the question, “Why is My Favorite Things a Christmas song?”

    Next week we will be introduced to film noir with Double Indemnity. We will examine the distinct visual style inspired by this film and how effective it is as a storytelling device.
