In the spirit of my Corrie scripts thread - and because the Sound of Music is on telly yet again - I thought I'd start a new thread in which I invite people to share their 'Why didn't they just...?' or 'They wouldn't have done that!' or 'That would never happen!' points about films. I have long said, about the Sound of Music, that the part at the end of the music festival - where the Von Trapps sing 'So long, farewell' as some sort of cover for their escape - is pointless. This is because they couldn't leave until the last family member came off stage, so they gained less time than if they'd legged it as soon as their previous song was over and left Max to stall for time with the judging, etc.
