There was one part, one thing I was very picky about. When Maria first came to the Von Trapp estate, she’s supposed to be dress very horribly beause she’s a nun–okay, a novice. Julie Andrews looked terrible and dowdy. The dress Carrie Underwood wore was pretty nice. It had great lines and looked terrific and most un-nunly on her body. However, I was able to suspend my disbelief–beause of those song–and pretended that nicely cut dress was exactly what a poor nun would wear. Then I saw Maria’s shoes. They were nice and probably comfortable pumps. Light brown, almost blending with her skin color with heels between 2 1/2 to 3 inches tall. They made me feel that Miss Underwood wasn’t totally commited to her part. I can forgive a great deal if I like the music, but those shoes bothered me everytime. Everytime I’ve seen a nun, she’s weaings flat, lace-up shoes in a dark color. Yes, I could accept alot as long as the cast kept singing–but the anachronism of those pretty shoes on a nun bothered me every time. And, yes, I know I’m shallow. And picky.
What bothers you more than it should?
