The Sound of Music is one of my childhood favorites. I remember how excited I was to watch it every year. I love Julie Andrews, I love the music, the singing, the dancing, and the romance. It’s a beautiful classic film.
The Sound of Music 45th Anniversary Edition has just been released on a Blu-ray/DVD Combo. I can’t tell you how much fun it was to share this movie with my daughters for the first time. This would make the PERFECT family Christmas gift!
