Oprah Winfrey teases “Sound of Music” reunion show


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Daytime television is about to come alive with “The Sound of Music” as media tycoon Oprah Winfrey reunites Julie Andrews, Christopher Plummer and the cast of the Oscar-winning musical in celebration of the film’s 45th anniversary.

Set your DVRs for Friday afternoon, when Winfrey will host the cast and tease the Nov. 2 release of Robert Wise’s film on Blu-ray.

During the interview, Andrews opens up about the health scare that reduced her singing voice.

“It certainly was huge,” Andrews tells Winfrey. “I mean I did go into huge decline. But the wonder is, and it’s true that it – as Maria says in the movie – when God closes a door, somewhere he opens a window.”

But the cast doesn’t want to dwell on inspirational nuggets like that, for fear that “Sound” would get too emotional. As Plummer said of the filming, “There needed to be a cynic of some kind around to stop it from getting too mawkish.” And Andrews chimed in, “I think we all felt that if we weren’t careful, the film could have been dreadfully saccharin.”

It isn’t. It’s a beloved classic, and this should be an entertaining hour with Winfrey and the cast. How much do you want to bet the studio audience goes home with their own copy?
