'HUMMEL SOTHEYSAY 'Sound Of Music' Is Happy film ::x: By LARRY HUMMEL *; >r Gazette Entertainment WHtef ;S1K!PLY STATED, "THE SOUND of Music" is a motion picture mastefpiece, superb in every respect, a film that offers enjoyment to moviegoers of all ages. It is the crowning athievement of motion picture musicals. /Although the musical will never rank among the greatest to come from Broadway, producer-director Robert Wise has fashioned a film of sheer delight from the final collaboration of Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II. It is a happy show and as such will probably reap some scorn from the so-called sophisticates who look With disdain upon anything that is suitable for the entire family. They will attempt to deprecate it by calling it sugarcoated, sentimental and full of sweetness and light. Indeed, "Sound of Music" is all these things, and a great deal more. But sentiment and sweetness are not vices and it is no sin to enjoy a film that abounds ' with happiness. THE MAGICAL JULIE Andrews is the most enchanting screen leading lady to come along in years and she delivers a warm and wonderful performance. As the delightful postii- lantCMaria, who leaves her convent to assume a position as governess to a household of seven children, she Is completely charming. She possesses a disarming quality of simplicity that is at once endearing and captivating. It: is also nice to note that in this era of "ghost" singers in motion picture musicals, we have here a leading lady who needs no help in the vocal department. No ghost could render thelRodgers and Hammerstein score any lovelier than does Miss Andrews. Tfie production numbers in the film are without exception marvelous. Movie audiences, not given to applause under oofmal circumstances, will find themselves clapping after the sprightly "Do-Re-Mi" and they will be equally enthusiastic about the "Lonely Goatherd" number which is done at a puppet show. •fy RICHARD RODGERS gets additional screen credit as creator: of words and music of a pair of new tunes. Both are excellent and Miss Andrews gives a particularly delightful rendition of one of them, "I Have Confidence In Me." Christopher Plummer is properly stern as Captain von Trapp and; carries the role off well. Eleanor Parker and Richard Hoyden make strong contributions in other parts and a new face,* Charmain Carr as Liesl, is a welcome addition. Rise's cameras have recorded some of the most breathtakingly- beautiful scenes of the Austrian Alps ever put on film. The'-director's handling of the Todd-AO 70mm process, particularly in the aerially photographed sequences, gives an almost three-dimensional effect. * 'EVERYTHING considered, "Sound of Music" is a gem of a motion picture which should create long lines leading to the Vista box office. It'is a film of distinction and this writer recommends that you 'see it. .W66NESDAY, MARCH 31, I96S Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer head cast of motion picture "Sound of Music."

SHEILAH GRAHAM Mffzi Gaynor Tops In Vegas HOLLYWOOD Gaynof will receive more than $150,000 for her four Weeks at the Flamingo in Las Vegas, starting May 13. it just happens that Mitri is one of the three top tiraws in night clubs. The other two—: Sammy Davis Jr. and Harry Belafonte. "B u t," Mitzi told me, "I'd like to make SHEILAH more movies, I still consider motion pictures my primary business." "In my opinion," Mitzi said, "my club show is the best of its kind, so why should I do junky pictures? For so long now, the trend in Hollywood has been for the violent and down- jeat. But perhaps how, with the success of 'Mary Poppihs' and Sound of Music,' a girl can smile again on screen and not be thought old-fashioned." MtTZi HAS been offered a picture with Dick Van Dyke, but t will not be made before the tnd of 1966, and that's a long wait for a girl who considers lerself in the movie business. She's one of the biggest talents n it. So I hope some smart woducer comes up with a script for this year. Vince Edwards, notorious for leaving his money at the race iracks, has found another way to get rid of the big salary he gets for his "Ben Casey" role on television. Some chums who are regulars in the Saturday- night-and-Sunday-morning card game tell me that every time Vince starts losing, he raises the ante and loses more.
