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.

At the end of the show, Oprah presented her audience with the remastered 45th anniversary DVD and Blu-ray set of ‘Music’, which includes sing-alongs, and a full length documentary. The DVD goes on sale everywhere on Nov 8.

    LOL. I know young adults who have never seen “The Wizard Of Oz”. I don’t get it. Do parents not watch the tv programs they grew up w/their kids? I watched “The Great Pumkin Charlie Brown” last night and I was home alone.

    Sandra a classic movie to some of todays youngin’s is “New Jack City”. GOD forbid if any of them has ever watched “Gone With The Wind”, which by the way is more comical than romantic as you get older.

    My favorite movie is “The Jerk”. Look at that concept for that movie back in the late 70’s early 80’s. Steve Martin was adopted by a black family and didn’t realize that he was black and he was never exposed to anything white. Hilarious!!!

    when he was working at the gas station and that man was shooting and he decides that “he doesn’t like the cans”

    or when he made those glasses and the bridge over the nose made everyone cross eyed. That was/is my favorite movie.

    I was watching Airplane the other day and I swear I loved that movie and when I watch it now I can’t understand why I like it so much. When they are talking jive and the white lady starts talking jive back is classic.
