QUICK TAKES

The hills might be too alive

June 06, 2008|From the Associated Press

Tourism officials in Salzburg, Austria, are debating plans to build a "Sound of Music" museum. The Von Trapp family featured in the 1965 movie and Broadway musical lived there before the start of World War II.

Salzburg officials say a museum containing memorabilia from the film starring Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer could draw 140,000 visitors a year.

But not everyone is enthusiastic about the idea. More than 600 neighborhood residents have signed a petition rejecting the proposal, saying they fear a museum would jam local streets with tour buses.
