If you get one book this year, believe me, this is the one to get. If you are a fan of The Sound Of Music as I and millions of others are, you will be floored. I know for a fact how much time, love and attention these 7 people put into making this memory book. It is truly a trip back in time to the mid 1960’s when this film was being made. Plus there is a dvd of footage never before seen by the general public of behind the scenes footage. You don’t have to climb a mountain to relive these wonderful film memories!
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.
