'The Sound of Music' Film Musical Celebrates Golden Anniversery

The hills are alive with the sound of a big, lucrative anniversary. The 1965 Oscar-winning film adaptation of the Rodgers & Hammerstein musical "The Sound of Music" is celebrating its 50th birthday this year and its star Julie Andrews can't quite believe it. She said, "This is a lovely moment to mark. I've been saying all along it's like a very bad joke because surely it was only 30 years ago — not 50. I feel I lost 20 somewhere along the way. A little thing called life got in the way."
The movie that popularized whiskers on kittens and warm woolen mittens isn't holding back on its golden anniversary: There are events, DVDs, books, soundtracks and screenings.
