Celebrating Fifty Years of The Sound of Music Through Pictures

Child actors who played the Von Trapp family (with Julie Andrews as Maria and Christopher Plummer as Captain Von Trapp) during filming of The Sound of Music

The Sound of Music, the classic movie version of the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical starring Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer, was released on March 29, 1965. The film, which bore such iconic sequences, centers around an errant nun who leaves the convent to become the governess of a man with seven children in 1930s Austria.

In celebration of the film's approaching fiftieth anniversary, Vanity Fair is featuring a gallery of photos including those shown here, which illustrate how the actors who played the Von Trapp children appeared during filming in 1964 and how they look now. See the full gallery at Vanity Fair.

Before home video, big movies would be released to theaters over again every two or three years, so I saw The Sound of Music in a theater several times. I hope the 50th anniversary release comes to my town; I'd like to enjoy on the big screen again.

It was sometime after I became a teenager that I learned Maria & Captain Von Trapp got married. I always fell asleep before the end of the movie since it plays long on network tv.
