The 7 Children In
"The Sound of Music"
(After 40 Years)

Strictly for those who still remember the screen version of the Sound of Music.....

"The Sound of Music" is a 1965 film.  It won the Academy Award for Best Picture of 1965 and is one of the most popular musicals ever produced.

Do you remember the 7 children of the Trapp family?  They were having a reunion after 40 years and all were looking healthy and amazingly well.

What is really tragic though is, Julie Andrews, as some of you may know by now, lost that magnificent voice of her's some years back (1997) because of a throat operation - she had been promised it would not affect her singing ability ... but it did!  Really, really sad.  She sued the medical people involved, but of course, the damage was done.  No amount of compensation can make up for such an incredible loss!  In recent years she appeared in a TV show, the Princess Diaries, in which she sang for the very first time (after '97) but in a very low octave.  It seems the TV crew all had tears in their eyes.
