    The great, multitalented and forever beautiful Julie Andrews is magnificent in this masterpiece! The Sound of Music and its wonderful star have brought the world such joy. What an amazing achievement by Robert Wise – 5 Oscars, including best picture! Time has shown that it much deserved each one of them. New generations are in awe of Julie Andrews beauty, energy, extraordinary voice and acting. Surely Julie is a treasure, and definitely,along with The Sound of Music, one of our favorite things;
