Andrews is absolutely magical in the starring role, a performance which earned her a second consecutive Best Actress nomination (this time losing to Julie Christie for Darling), from her iconic performance of the title song, being goosed by a pine cone during her first dinner with the von Trapp family, berating the Captain for ignoring his children, or helping the Captain escape from his new appointment in Hitler's Third Reich, Andrews is captivating and her rich, clear soprano is absolutely breathtaking.
