Young vonTrapp singers ready for their closeup
Four decades after Julie Andrews climbed every mountain and married a widowed naval captain in "The Sound of Music," his real-life great grandchildren are hoping to make movie magic of their own.
The four von Trapp family descendants -- Sofia, 18, Melanie, 16, Amanda, 15, and Justin, 11 -- are taking time off from a world tour as a sibling singing act to star in a Christmas-themed feature film in the works for next year.
Hokey, maybe, but it sounds like fun nonetheless. I'm looking forward to it. Count me in as a die-hard, lifelong fan of The Sound Of Music anyway, I know that real life is far from that fairytale... but it's a nice fairytale anyway. And I'm glad that there are still some members of the family who sing and perform.
