The Sound of Music was one of those rare movies where you could feel pretty good about rooting for the Nazis.

Sound of Music was one of the few videos we let our first child watch as a kid. She was young so we'd turn it off after they sing at a public concert but before they flee the Nazis. We watched that movie hundreds of times with her.

When she was high school age, she saw a high school production of Sound of Music. She came home confused and told the show was good but she couldn't understand how Nazis should up at the end. We explained what we'd done. She was a bit miffed and wanted to know what other movies she's watched as a kid ended with Nazis chasing the main characters.

Seven screeching little kids? The only people who think the Nazis aren't the good guys in that movie are people who have never seen it.

physt: Sound of Music was one of the few videos we let our first child watch as a kid. She was young so we'd turn it off after they sing at a public concert but before they flee the Nazis. We watched that movie hundreds of times with her.

You're not the only one who did this. A segment on "This American Life" featured a woman whose favorite movie as a child was The Sound of Music and would watch it whenever it was on TV.  However, her parents would always make her go to bed after the wedding scene so for years she thought the movie ended there. It wasn't until she was an adult that she saw the last part of the movie with the Nazis, Rolfe's betrayal, and the Von Trapp's escape to Switzerland. As one might expect, she was rather shaken up and confused about how her memories clashed with the complete film.

On a related note, my mother spent the last years of her life in an assisted living center for people with Alzheimer's and dementia, and many times when I visited, they were playing a DVD of The Sound of Music in the TV room.  Since it was the center's policy not to show any TV programs that were too complicated, confusing, or upsetting for the people living there, I once asked if they showed the last part movie with the Nazis. They said they did but I was never there when it happened. I usually left during the wedding scene.
