'The Sound of Music' Turns 45

Tuesday, March 02, 2010

On this day in 1965, "The Sound of Music" opened in theaters. It was hugely successful, winning five Academy Awards, including best picture.

The film's enduring popularity affected the lives of both the real and fictional von Trapps.  We talk to Sam von Trapp, grandson of Maria, the singing governess, and to Daniel Truhitte, who played Rolf in the film.
