You call that a chase scene?

My mother's favorite movie was The Sound of Music. Every year when it came on TV, we'd watch it. And, every year, I'd fall asleep right around the time where the Von Trapp kids do their "So Long, Farewell" bit. I never made it to the wedding or the oft-mentioned flight from the Nazis.

That changed this weekend, when I managed to get through the entire movie without nodding off. And I have to say, I was a little disappointed that the escape from the Nazi horde basically involved Captain Von Trapp disarming that pantywaste Rolf and a couple of nuns sabotaging the Nazi's cars. Would a daring mountainside car chase have been too much to ask?
