Overview:

In 1965 the 20th Century Fox motion picture version of The Sound of Music was released in theatres. With music written and composed by Rodgers & Hammerstein, the film boasted a dream cast: Julie Andrews as Maria, Christopher Plummer as the Captain, Eleanor Parker as Elsa and Peggy Wood as the Mother Abbess. The film made Hollywood history; after the premiere at the Rivoli Theatre in New York, the run of engagements in movie theaters lasted a stunning 4 1/2 years internationally, playing its final showing December 8, 1969. Winner of five Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Scoring of Music, The Sound of Music has since become the most popular movie musical ever made.

The soundtrack features popular favorites like: “Edelweiss,” “My Favorite Things,” “Climb Every Mountain,” “Do-Re-Mi,” “Sixteen Going on Seventeen,” “The Lonely Goatherd” and “The Sound of Music.”

Upon release, the soundtrack reached #1 in the Billboard 200 chart and remained Top Ten for 109 weeks. The album was the best-selling album in the United Kingdom in 1965, 1966 and 1968 and the second best-selling of the entire decade, spending a total of 70 weeks at number one on the UK Albums Chart. The album has since gone on to sell over 20 million copies worldwide.
