Something that bothers me about The Sound of Music


You know what bothered me?

The scene where Christopher Plummer stares Rolf down and takes away his Luger. "You'll never be one of them!"

Only reason Rolf didn't shoot him was that he was his girlfriend's father. But Captain Von Trapp seemed to think he overpowered Rolf through sheer force of personality. A triumph of his will, so to speak.

Just made Rolf feel bad so now he had something to prove. I'll bet it made him an even bigger Nazi than before.

It's on TV in the next room. That's why I bring it up.
