Ever wondered what happened to the cast of a well-loved movie? For example, one of my favorite series is The Police Academy – and I have really missed seeing more of them. It has also set me thinking about what those characters might be doing now – obviously not all of them went on to be highly successful.

Another of my all-time favorites is ‘The Sound of Music‘ which won the Academy Award for Best Picture of 1965 and is one of the most popular musicals ever produced.
Remember the 7 children of the Trapp family? They were having a reunion after 40 years and all were looking healthy and amazingly well…..
The really tragic part, though, is, Julie Andrews, as some of you may know by now, lost that magnificent voice of hers some years back (1997) because of a throat operation – she had been promised it would not affect her singing ability … but it did! really really sad. She sued – but of course, the damage was done … no amount of compensation can make up for such an incredible loss!
Recently appeared in a TV show, the Princess Diaries, (with Anne Hathaway) in which she sang for the very first time (after ‘ 97) but in a very low octave and it seems the TV crew all had tears in their eyes.
Then – It wouldn’t be funny if it weren’t so true – Julie Andrews turned 69 and to commemorate her 69th birthday on October 1, she made a special appearance at Manhattan’s Radio City Music Hall for the benefit of the AARP. One of the musical numbers she performed was “My Favourite Things” from the legendary movie “Sound Of Music.” The lyrics? True Julie Andrews style. Read them at The Sound of Music – its FUN! Tell me if you were singing it in your head – I know I was!
Of course, Ms. Andrews received a standing ovation from the crowd that lasted over four minutes and repeated encores.
