Cuz if you did, it was awesome. Normally, I'm not an Oprah girl (Ellen is more my style). While I love Oprah personally, her shows are usually such downers sometimes. But not yesterday. Yesterday, Oprah reunited the original cast of the The Sound of Music movie. Talk about great TV moments! I remember seeing this movie in the theaters and feeling so overwhelmed. I made my mother buy the record (remember those) and I memorized every word of every song.
Among my favorites moments:
Seeing Julie Andrews looking so awesome.
Having Charmain Carr (Leisl) admit that while filming she had a crush on her "dad" Christopher Plummer. He apparently also taught her how to drink during filming (she was actually 21, not 16 not going on 17).
Seeing the film clip of the real Maria Von Trapp and Julie Andrews singing Edelweiss together.
Discovering that the 35 year old Christopher Plummer was, to put it bluntly, kind of a dog (I'll be honest, I've always found him kind of sexy, even at 80!)
Seeing the audition film clips of the "kids" and hearing their stories.
Seeing Julie Andrews, well, look so awesome (did I already say that?)
Oh, and seeing the real live Von Trapp great-grandchildren on stage singing Edelweiss. Brought a tear to my eye.
