The initial popularity, enduring legacy, and creative fan cultures surrounding The Sound of Music all arise in this discussion between Carsey-Wolf Center director Patrice Petro and Film and Media Studies professor Caryl Flinn (University of Michigan). Describing the film as about the joy of singing, Prof. Flinn positions The Sound of Music and its songs within the twilight of a golden era of film musicals. When discussing the legacy of the film, Prof. Flinn details the growth of sing-a-long The Sound of Music screening events and reveals her favorite fan revival, a Jewish communitys The Sound of Purim. Also covered in this talk are Christopher Plummers notorious distaste for the film and attacks on the film by cultural elites like Pauline Kael. Recorded on 11/03/2018. (#34287)
