Even four decades after the movie's theatrical release, the hills are indeed still alive with 'The Sound of Music.' The story of the beautiful young Austrian novice Maria (Julie Andrews) who's sent to play governess to the seven unruly Von Trapp children and falls in love with their widower father, Captain Von Trapp (Christopher Plummer), remains one of the most beloved musicals of all time. Unbelievably catchy songs, career-defining performances and a touching, crowd-pleasing plot made 'The Sound of Music' one of those timeless must-see films for all audiences.
