Twentieth Century Fox proudly honors the 50th Anniversary of the 1965 box office smash and five-time Academy Award-winning The Sound of Music with an unprecedented year-long, company-wide celebration highlighted by theatrical and home entertainment releases, and a slate of cross-company and promotional partnerships that will bring one of the world's most ‘favorite things' to millions around the globe.
The unparalleled golden anniversary of the film's premiere launched March 2 in the United Kingdom and March 10 in the United States with the release of the 5-disc Ultimate Collector's Edition 50th Anniversary Blu-ray/DVD/Digital HD.
Beautifully restored, the 5-disc 50th Anniversary Blu-ray features over 13 hours of bonus content highlighted by the all-new documentary "The Sound of a City: Julie Andrews Returns to Salzburg," detailing Andrews' recent return to the magical city where she filmed her iconic role, Maria, half a century ago!
The celebration will continue on March 26 with Turner Classic Movies (TCM) paying tribute to the film's legendary stars, Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer, with an opening night screening of the movie at the sixth annual TCM Classic Film Festival (which runs from March 26-29).
Famed film historian Robert Osborne will introduce the brilliantly restored film at the opening-night gala and moderate a Q&A session with Andrews and Plummer.
The treasured film will once again proudly shine on the big screen in commemoration of this special anniversary. Through a Fox partnership with Fathom Events and Turner Classic Movies, a beautifully restored version of the film will be shown for two days only, April 19 and 22, in over 500 theaters across the U.S. (www.FathomEvents.com).
