Is the beginning really a good place to start? Janet Gover investigates …
It is with great trepidation that I am about to publicly disagree with a cultural icon.
I am talking about Sound of Music – one of the most awarded films of all time. Five Oscars and The Golden Globe for Best film can’t be wrong. And there were many, many more accolades. It’s one of those films you either love or hate. Most people love it. It’s very dated now, but watching it at Christmas has become a family tradition. Everyone sings along with Julie Andrews and the kids.
Ok – so where do I disagree? It’s with Do Re Mi… and the first line of the song.

(Go on – admit it… you just sang that, didn’t you?)
It’s is an iconic scene in an iconic movie. I’ve seen it at least a dozen time.
