'The Sound of Music' cast to reunite on 'Oprah'

If seeing the cast of "The Sound of Music" reunited on national TV is one of your dreams, well... Oprah Winfrey is going to make another one of your dreams come true during her final season.

Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer will join fellow "Music" stars Charmian Carr (Liesl), Nicholas Hammond (Friedrich), Heather Menzies-Urich (Louisa), Duane Chase (Kurt), Angela Cartwright (Brigitta), Debbie Turner (Marta) and Kym Karath (Gretl) on Winfrey's show on October 29, 2010, according to a statement.

It's been 45 years since the cast had such a reunion, and they plan on dishing about behind-the-scenes dirt from the "Music" set and what they've been up to since their Oscar-winning movie was released.

Plus, the Von Trapp Children, a singing group that features some of the actual members of the von Trapp family, will be on hand to showcase their pipes in a tribute to the family-favorite film and its stars.

    incredibile come dnraute questi mesi il gioco sia migliorato graficamente .cmq dicono che sul versante dei controlli impressionante, e se migliore di metroid 3 sotto questo aspetto ..gia il Wii era la macchina definitiva per gli FPS gi ai tempi di metroid, e se ci possono essere ancora miglioramenti nel controllo il Wii mi piace sempre di pi ! Ho finito da poco fallout3 (l'unico vero gioco che mi ha appasionato della 360) e l'xbox ora lo poser definitivamente, e lo riprender solo per riuscire a pigliare S in tutti i capitoli e sono du palle

    In my opinion Oprah is a racist.. I don't remember any episode where she has had a Hispanic on her show. Every time she has had non star guests they were either black or white!!!! Don't take my word for it, check it out!!! I do not like her.

    well - I don't watch Oprah either but It's because I'm busy living my life. I'm quite sure she has her faults just like every single 1 of us who posted here. I'm also sure that she has done more good –helped more people–and accomplished more in her still young life that anyone here as well. People may hate her (if they have nothing better to do with their energy and actually want to use it that way) but it doesn't change the fact that she at least tries to do something constructive with her life while other people are too small to give credit where credit is due.

    Will not miss seeing this Oprah final PINACLE gift to all American viewers.
    Salzburg in 1966 was just like the setting of Stowe, Vermont. Amazing!
    Maria was at home in Stowe for her eldest son's wedding on the hillside at a little shrine in the woods.
    All family members sang, their voices heard over the hills. The bride was in bridal white with muddy boots.
    Maria in bright sky blue (like her eyes) silk tyrolean dress.
    Have picture of Maria on her horse about to take her morning ride. Memories worth keeping and brought back.

But if anybody "dished", they only did so in the nicest way possible! 🙂 The cast members are all obviously great friends, and it was terrific to see them all together again. And yes, it was the first time that all nine of them were together in person for a public appearance since the movie. If you are a fan, be sure to watch the show! You'll have a great time and shed a tear or two for sure – don't miss it!

    The Sound of Music, along with other musical movies like Mary Poppins, Oklahoma, and the like, is a classic and brings back fond memories of a bygone era. Don't make fun of it. Your turn will come when you are older. Movies you like now may be relics for the next generation or two. You will realize how it feels then. Nobody stays young forever except in Heaven. Y'all need to behave, watch your language, and show respect for older things and people.You will get there soon enough.

    Many years ago, I had the pleasure of visting Austria. Part of our tour took us to areas where parts of the filiming took place. The Sound of Music has always been a family favorite and the ONLY musical my husband will watch. I've always loved Julie Andrews and will never tire of her voice. I don't watch Oprah much, but I will definitely watch this one.

      Posted on I believe I heard the President say all pepole would be on Medicare. Oh, dear, Medicare is not free. Thats why on page 59 of the bill they want your bank account # so they can automatically charge your account every month. Our insurance companies, utilities companies, etc. have our account number. Our bills get paid automatically and directly from the bank to the companies every month. The only bills we get are the credit card bills. I have no problem with these companies having our account #, but I dont trust the Federal Government with it. Too many bureaucrats. The only Fed agency that has our # is Social Security so we can have direct deposit. So far, weve had no problems.

    I still remember the first time I saw the film! Do you all remember the way the theatre went dark, and you heard the wind whistling, the birds chirping– and as you watched, the camera panned over that beautiful view, the music swelled and the camera focused closer and closer to the figure on the mountain. Julie Andrews! Then from her throat came the most beautiful singing I have ever heard in all my life! I was flabbergasted. That was years and years ago, and I have never heard a better voice yet! That movie was a blockbuster–whether people like it or not, like Julie Andrews or not–the film broke record after record. WHAT A MOVIE, WHAT A WOMAN!!!!!!!!!!!

    TSOM is a timeless magical movie and it'll be nice to see the cast together again. Isn't it amazing all those kids grew up to be normal and it's hard to find a kid star from a movie today that isn't in rehab by age 12? Gee, and Julie has aged gracefully and stayed out of rehab too- those were the days & those are actors with talent and class!

    • I'll be there

      Yes, Julie and all the kids were there, but Christopher Plummer wasn't there in person. This movie is a cultural phenomenon. Many of us old enough to have seen its initial release have carried it in our hearts for these 45 years, and will, as long as we live. I remember as if it were yesterday – my family had no extra money to do frivolous things like see movies. My great aunt sent us the money – for all our birthdays and Christmas that year – and we went into the "city" to see it. It was a big screen – there aren't any screens like that in regular movie theaters any more. It was magical.

      I've got the 40th anniversary DVD, and there's an episode of the show "Biography" about the real family. There is thought that Maria may have been bi-polar, and was NOT all sweetness and light as she was depicted. Georg was also not a martinet, but actually a very kind and loving father who simply wanted to protect his family in the best way he knew how.

    I think Peggy Wood died in the late 1970's sometime. I would love to see this show, though. The only Oprahs I've ever watched all the way through were the one where she and Gail went to the Texas State Fair and the one with Josh Groban. I'm surprised Christopher Plummer is appearing. I always heard he hated The Sound of Music.I suppose he probabaly hated narrating the Madeleine cartoons, too. All that good, wholesome stuff! I guess he has mellowed in his old age.

    Will watch just to see if Christopher Plummer admit he hated making the movie and made fun of it throughout filming – he called it "The Sound of Mucus". Check his comments on the Internet Movie Database. Or will he not want to offend the mightly Oprah?

      I was at the taping last Thursday AND HE ACTUALLY SAID THIS DURING THE SHOW!!! Everyone laughed... Also, we got a coupon for the new box set coming out on Nov. 2. It was a truly amazing show.... If you loved the movie, you will love this show!

    My fondest memory. Me five, in the theater with grandma Grace sitting on my left and grandpa Merv on my right. I was enchanted: It was my first musical. And soon after, grandma bought me a do-re-mi sailor dress! And of course the album and the sheet music book. Such a joy to remember this. Love to you both in heaven.

    The Sound of Music was liberal metaphor for the displacement of the American Indians. Oprah has an agenda and so does Wendy Williams. Open your eyes America. And I also like turtles.

      This will be mM first ever Oprah viewing; although I wanted to be able to say I'd never watched the show, ever! Worth it to see Andrews and Plummer, and yes it would be fabulous if one of the world's most beautiful love songs, 'Edelwiess", were reprised. I remember falling in love with Plummer during that movie and precisely when he sang that song. For all of you who are dissing the fond memories people have of this film, chill out. We promise not to make fun of YOUR memories, whatever they may be. Peace!

    Personally I don't care much for this but there is a small point of interest as the Von Trapps are in my bloodline. I'm not sure exactly but I think my great grandfather was a cousin to the originals. My grandfather dropped the Von to be just Trapp.

    It will be interesting to know what Nicholas Hammond has been up to these past years. He was on TV as "The Amazing Spider Man" from 1977 to 1979. I'm surprised he wasn't offered a cameo appearance on the current movies with Tobey McGuire. Maybe in the new Spider Man film coming out he'll be tapped to play Uncle Ben (he's old enough by now).

      Nicholas Hammond actually has lived here in Australia since the mid-1980s. He has appeared on several Australian TV shows and written a couple as well. His most recent TV appearance was in 2009 and he stills look good for his age.

    I'm sure the studio that produced the film is preparing a special limited edition dvd of "sound of music" to capitalize on the Oprah appearence. Maybe harpo productions will lend footage not aired of interview to dvd's extras?? I bet Oprah gives an already released dvd version of film to each audience member. (so obvious)..

      I've heard the 45th anniversary edition of the film will be released soon, on Blu-Ray. Hence, the publicity. Regardless, this should be a 'not to be missed' episode. Many of the cast members have gathered before, but I don't recall *both* Julie and Christopher together for such an occasion.

I still still the songs around the house and also some to my special little granddaughter. This is the best Oprah will have in my opinion....well almost...We have tried to contact her on doing a special on our children with their special rare syndrome called Rubinstein-Taybi Sydrome, but no go. Won't hold it against her. Someone else will do it.
