In case you missed it: the entire cast of the classic 60s musical ‘The Sound of Music’ reunited for the first time in 45 years on Oprah yesterday.
The reason the cast never reunited before was due to the narcissism of actor Christopher Plummer who famously hated on the movie and assumed it was great only because he was in it.
Plummer, 80, stubbornly refused to reunite with the cast in 45 years. So it’s a testament to the respect that Oprah commands that she was able to convince him to participate.
You couldn’t be a child growing up in London and not be familiar this movie. We learned the words to every song in school a few years after the movie came out. ‘The Sound of Music’ earned 5 Oscar Awards and a slew of Oscar nominations.
‘The Sound of Music’ merged the beautiful sounds of the Von Trapp children singers (a real family) with the horrors of Hitler’s World War II. It remains the greatest musical ever.
