The Sound of Music

 (1965)

The Sound of Music Blu-ray truly is a masterpiece with perfect scores all around making it one of the best Blu-ray's ever

Julie Andrews lights up the screen as Maria, the spirited young woman who leaves the convent to become governess to the seven children of Captain Von Trapp, an autocratic widower whose strict household rules leave no room for music or entertainment.

For more about The Sound of Music and the The Sound of Music Blu-ray release, see the The Sound of Music Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 5.0 out of 5.

Starring: Julie Andrews, Christopher Plummer, Richard Haydn, Eleanor Parker, Charmian Carr, Nicholas Hammond
Director: Robert Wise

The Sound of Music Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Now this is how you do a restoration of a film from the mid-1960s. The Sound of Music was shot in the widescreen 70mm Todd-AO format, and for this new release, the original negatives were scanned at 8K and downsized to a 4K master that has been given an extensive restoration. Color fluctuations between takes have been corrected and thousands of instances of dirt and debris have been removed, resulting in a 1080p/AVC- encoded transfer that's absolutely pristine. Most importantly, the fine grain structure of the 70mm negative hasn't been tampered with at all and there have been no attempts to artificially sharpen the picture. It simply isn't needed. Like most of the other 70mm films to appear on Blu-ray—2001: A Space Odyssey, Baraka, etc.—The Sound of Music inherently has a tremendous sense of clarity, revealing every detail of the wool and herringbone suits, the ornately gilded interiors of the von Trapp estate, individual blades of grass on a mountaintop meadow, and the fine textures of the actors' faces. Some close-ups do appear softer, but this is only because a diffusion filter was used during filming to give a flattering glow to some of the older performers. Color reproduction is warm and dense as well, with vivid primaries, rich neutrals, perfectly attuned black levels, and skin tones that are natural and consistent. Unlike the artifact-heavy DVD, there are no real compression issues to speak of here. I did spot—briefly—some moiré-like shimmer on the fine lines of Maria's apron at the very beginning of the film, but it's hardly a distraction. I can't imagine The Sound of Music looking any better than it does here, and I have no problems giving it a full 5/5 for picture quality.


The Sound of Music Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

Unusual for the mid-1960s, The Sound of Music featured six-track stereo, allowing seamless pans and sweeps and plenty of room for the orchestral score to breath. For the first time, the film's restorers had access to the original six-track print master, which they've digitally restored and expanded into a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 surround mix. The results—without gushing too much—are flawless. I mean, you'd expect nothing less from a film called The Sound of Music, right? Well, rest assured, the music sounds fantastic—rich, dynamically expressive, and wonderfully clean. The score fills every channel during the musical numbers, and the spacious mix generates a great sense of interplay between the individual instruments. And the singing! As crisp as the alpine air. The same goes for the non-sung dialogue, which is perfectly balanced. Fans couldn't ask for more. Like the restoration of the print, it's clear that a lot of time and effort went into optimizing the audio for this release. (If you're interested, make sure to check out the Restoring a Classic: A Glorious Sound featurette for details on how the audio cleanup was accomplished.)
