When the Navy captain George Von Trapp writes to the convent asking for a governess that can handle his seven mischievous children, Maria is given the job.

The children are unhappy and resentful of the governesses that their father keeps hiring, and have managed to run each of them off one by one. When Maria arrives, she is initially met with the same hostility, but her kindness, understanding, and sense of fun soon draws them to her and brings some much-needed joy into all their lives - including the Captain's.

          Dr Strangelove is still considered 50 years on as a true classic and one of the finest black comedies ever made. Nominated for four Academy Awards including Best Picture (1964), Stanley Kubrick's black comedy about a group of paranoia-inspired, war-happy generals who manage to in...itiate an 'accidental' nuclear apocalypse, is horribly frightening, delightfully funny and surprisingly relevant to this day.This is the saga of two psychotic generals: Joint Chief of Staff 'Buck' Turgidson (George C. Scott) and Air Force Strategic Commander Jack Ripper (Sterling Hayden), who orders a bomber squadron to attack the USSR, triggering a Soviet secret weapon, the 'Doomsday Machine', a diabolical retaliatory missile system.Peter Sellers portrays a trio of men who attempt to avert this catastrophe: British Captain Lionel Mandrake, the only person with access to paranoid Gen. Ripper; U.S. President Muffley, whose best attempt at diverting this disaster depends on convincing a boozed-up Soviet Premier it's all a farce.
