The Sound of Music is an all-time movie musical classic first released in 1965. It starred Julie Andrews playing the part of Maria von Trapp. You likely know the story’s premise of Maria, a young Austrian woman, who is studying to be a nun. She is sent to the home of a widowed military officer to be the governess for his seven children. All sorts of delight and drama ensue. The songs in the movie, created by Rogers and Hammerstein, have become familiar across the world.
A few years later, in 1972-1973, Julie Andrews had her own Emmy Award-winning TV variety show. In one episode she met the real Maria von Trapp. Today’s video is that short clip.
