DIE TRAPP FAMILIE IN AMERIKA (1958) * with switchable English subtitles *

Wolfgang Liebeneiner Writers: George Hurdalek, Herbert Reinecker (dialogue), 1 more credit » Stars: Ruth Leuwerik, Hans Holt, Maria Holst
$14.99

1938 flüchtet die Trapp- Familie vor den Nazis aus Österreich. Die singende Sippe erlebt ihre neue Heimat USA aber als Land der begrenzten Möglichkeiten: Die religiösen Songs von Mutter Maria und ihrer Kinderschar will keiner hören. Erst alpenländische Lieder, vorgetragen im Dirndl, bringen den Erfolg. 

The sequel to Die Trapp Familie hardly lightens the mood for fans of the von Trapp Family Singers.  The Trapps have left Austria and are now in the United States.  But the Land of Unlimited Possibilities turns out to be anything but for our hapless heroes.  Though the American public has demonstrated countless times, that they'll pay anything to hear Volkslieder and other pop songs, the family is on the verge of being penniless and suicidal, thanks to their priest/agent, who's determined to teach Americans to appreciate great church music ... no matter how much his "cultural mission" pushes the family to starvation.  Only the insistence of paying patrons that they drop the holy roller music and the guffaws of the audience abandoning their shows finally convinces Maria, that it's time to start entertaining the paying public and give Palestrina a rest.

DVD-R is in German with switchable English subtitles.  Approx. 99 mins.  Minor pixellization issues.
