That's a nice film. That's down in fellow Stakker TomQ's bailiwick. That was maybe him singing in that nice choir at the start?

Good film! Brings back lots of memories of that time period. I had an uncle who farmed near Boyle, Ab. and we would all go there in the fall to help thresh. He still liked the old way, so lots of help was needed! Used an old McCormick-Deering thresher belted up to a steel wheeled JD 'D'. One old Minnie to pull the grain wagon and teams of horses on the bundle wagons. I was in my early teens and have fond memories of those days still.

I am glad to see horses being used among those tractors

Thanks for posting that one casetractor.
Choir music really adds class in my opinion.
My father, 95 years old was over today with his new hearing aids so I just put it on for him.
He said during mid 30s and early 40s he was on threshing crew in Arron, Kamsack and Pelly Sask. Also Benito Manitoba.
He said it was still all done with steam and horses in that area at that time.

We were still threshing here when our Weir Public School (WEIR not weird!) choir competed in the Kiwanis Music Festival in Brantford. We sang Edelweiss and we won the blue ribbon!

Excellent scene and singing. "The Sound of Music" was filled with so many special scenes. The minuets in "The Lonely Goat Herd" were so intricate and well done! Even their eyes moved. I remember the scene where they had that big classic 'German' car which was really a French Citroen Traction Aviant.

The goat herd reminds me of my children. We left the oldest in charge if we went to a meeting. When we got home at night, instead of being in bed like they should be, they were hiding behind a makeshift stage and they put on a play for us. They got by doing this often!
