I was cleaning up my office inbox this morning when I chanced upon this email sent by a friend some months back. It has photos of some very familiar faces from a very famous movie we all (or I guess, most of us) loved. It’s no other than The Sound of Music (TSoM).
I still remember the day when I first saw the film at the house of Tatay’s best bud. I was just 8 years old then. And I instantly enjoyed and liked the film. (Pero wag ka, di ko masyadong naintindihan nun kasi English! Whehehe!). And up to this time, TSoM is one of my fave films. I’ve got all kinds of audio and video copies. Cassette tape (yep, I’m still in possession of those things), VHS tape (kahit wala na akong player), VCD (oops, nag-iimprove na!), DVD (oh ha, updated na ng konti) and MP3s of all songs loaded in my iPod (haven’t stolen video from the net yet, hehehe!). So, suma tutal, di ko sya talaga masyadong favorite, di ba?! LOL!
Again, Im not writing about the film. I really don’t have talent for movie review. I just wanted to share those interesting photos in my friend’s email. I bet this one is a very familiar scene.
And so, for a clearer view, here’s the Von Trapp kids’ frontal shot:
They all looked real cute back then. And this is how they look now (more or less, I suppose, as their reunion was held some years back):
I bet this reunion was truly one heck of a moment to remember for the entire TSoM cast.
Up to this day, I couldn’t believe that Charmain Carr (Liesl) was almost 22 years old when she did the film. Her portrayal of a 16-year old daughter was way too convincing for me. Hmmm… I bet you are now trying to recall that famous “Sixteen Going On Seventeen” scene. LOL!
Fret no more, just click here to see that sweet clip of Liesl and Ralph singing “16 Going on 17”.
