Seven very special children experiencedThe Sound of Music firsthand: the seven young actors cast as the von Trapp children. Now, for the first time, they tell their stories about making this celebrated film, from their auditions to rehearsals in Los Angeles to an incredible spring and summer in Salzburg, Austria in The Sound of Music Family Scrapbook by Fred Bronson, published by Applause Books. They have collected their never-before-seen own home movie footage on a brand-new DVD. It is included here, along with personal cherished memorabilia, such as letters sent home to their families from Europe, a page from the script with edits written in the margin, and a ticket to the premiere. For anyone who is thrilled by the sight of Julie Andrews spinning around on top of a mountain, or who spontaneously bursts out singing Do-Re-Mi, this captivating behind-the-scenes inside story is a must read.
Also in this prize pack, the limited edition 45th anniversary Blu-ray/DVD box set of The Sound of Music, which includes bonus features on the discs, A Few of Our Favorite Things hardcover, reprint of the 1965 theatrical souvenir book, hand-painted "My Favorite Things" music box, snapshots from Salzburg, official letter of authenticity, and the 45th anniversary soundtrack.
