The Sound of Music Family Scrapbook
From the moment Julie Andrews appears on the hills outside Salzburg to the final daring escape from the Nazis, `The Sound of Music` is embedded in the DNA of a generation. But what was it like to be part of all this? For seven children and young adults, the summer of 1964 was a magical one, spent in Salzburg, Austria with their parents or guardians, the film's stars and director, and last - but not least - each other. `The Sound of Music Family Scrapbook` tells their story, both during the filming and once the movie was released. It features a DVD of their own home-movie footage, and memorabilia they have cherished and preserved over the years, including letters home to their families in America, a page from the script with edits marked in the margin, and a ticket to the world premiere. If you ever dreamed of marching round the fountains singing `Do Re Mi`, or dressing in a playsuit made from drapes, you will love this enchanting story of how seven boys and girls became a family - and how they have kept that closeness for over 45 years.
