The Sound of Music was the first movie I ever saw at a theater. It was also a movie that changed my life. Growing up in a large family having my own doll was not an option. But to my delight my Mother had in her cedar chest a small boy doll with leidederhosen and alpine hat . He had a little tag on him that said his name was "Fritz". I secretly claimed this doll as my own and would hideaway with him and play for hours, always gently putting him back. I decided the minute I saw "Fritzi" come to life on the big screen in the Sound of Music that he was my doll come to life. I also decided to travel someday to Salzburg Austria and find Fritz and marry him. Many years later in 1983 I did just that ! So every time I see this movie especially the opening scene I think of the wonderful places like Austria and the special meaning it has to me. Good bye, so long............. C.S.
