[quote=""MLE""]Justin, I don't think the Sound of Music was intended to be an adaptation of Maria Von Trapp's autobiography. They just loosely based the musical on her story. [/quote]

True, but the musical buried the book and the real story with it.

REALLY interesting adaptation I caught on Netflix streaming last night: http://dianelmajor.blogspot.com/2012/08 ... nment.html

Posted about this in the Movies etc. thread as well.
