Note 50: Feeling von Trapped

Note 50: Feeling von Trapped

<<First     <Previous

And so we finally get our introduction to all the children. Most of the actors who played the kids in the movie ended up in careers involving either show business (Liesl, Friedrich, Louisa, Brigitta, Gretl), and/or art and design (Liesl, Brigitta, Marta). The only one who didn't end up in one of these fields is Duane Chase, who played Kurt. He went on to get a Masters degree in geology, and now writes geology and geophysics software. No, really.

To give Maria some credit here though, it's all too easy to overlook a minefield if you're not actually looking for it. Until... Kaboom!

In the universe the players inhabit, The Sound of Music does not exist. That's the premise of this entire comic, after all. But most of the other things we know and love (such as minefields) do, albeit modified by the lack of The Sound of Music:

Captain von Trapp: Ahem. And Gretl.
Captain von Trapp: You were memorising that, right?
Maria: I won't need to whistle for them, Captain. I'll use their names.
Captain von Trapp: Fräulein, this house has been designed for maximal defensive capability against the Nazis. Your voice won't carry through the bulletproof doors. There are boltholes where these kids can hide with enough food to last six months.
Maria: But where do they play?
Captain von Trapp: Did you even see the minefield outside?
Liesl: It'sa fun, if you knows where da mines are.
Friedrich: Our last governess forgot. Kaboom!
Friedrich: It was awesome.
