the life of the family singing group the Van Trapp Family
The first disc of this two-DVD set includes the film, plus the option to listen to audio commentary by director Robert Wise. During the songs and underscored passages, Wise's commentary is silent and the vocal tracks are removed, allowing the viewer to hear the score in isolation (or even sing along). The second disc is reserved for bonus material. In a 14-minute featurette from 1965, Salzburg: Sight and Sound, Charmian Carr (Liesl) narrates as she explores Salzburg and works on the set. More substantial is The Sound of Music: From Fact to Phenomenon, an 87-minute documentary from 1994. Narrated by Claire Bloom, it includes biographical information and photos of the real Maria, clips from the 1956 German film Die Trappe Familie that inspired the Broadway musical, and details of the musical's subsequent transformation into film. The movie's creators and principals, including Robert Wise, Saul Chaplin, Julie Andrews, and Christopher Plummer, as well as members of the von Trapp family, contribute extensive comments, spotlight Maria von Trapp's cameo in the film, explain the various sets and locations, and discuss the film's effect on the family. The DVD also has seven previews and TV spots, four radio spots, several audio interviews with Andrews, Plummer, Wise, and others, and "The Sound of Music Gallery," which offers stills and texts giving a history of Salzburg, production diaries and notes, and credits and a bibliography of recommended materials. DVD-ROM features include games and Web links. --David Horiuchi

I purchased this for my best friend and she loved it. It is a great gift set and packaged very well. This would make an excellent Christmas gift for a sound of music fan.Published 1 day ago by Kat22183
How can you go wrong with Julie Andrews. After all these years, the Sound of Music is still a timeless classic with beautiful scenery and music.Published 2 days ago by Cathy Copeland

Generally, it means both versions are included - there is a DVD copy of the movie, and a Blu-Ray copy. So yes, according to the description, there is a copy you can play in your DVD player.

|Combo packs in Blu-ray or DVD packaging||
There are people anal enough out there not to buy a blu-ray/DVD release if they can't get it without a cardboard sleeve.
Depends on what you want to fit into your collection. If you need the larger DVD packaging to fit the rest of your video library, that's what they're providing. What I don't... Read More
