You would have never have seen it onscreen as the “original” production was on Broadway with Mary Martin. Plays are meant to be seen often so new audiences can appreciate them. Without new productions, they would become obsolete & no one would hear the wonderful music from generation to generation. Be happy when your favorite movies & musicals are remade & broadcast again. It can only be a positive thing since new viewers quickly become new fans.

Im happy for the actor but not happy for me…from 4th grade to 6th grade the only music we had to sing(and im bad as it is) were the songs from Sound Of Music…it was our music teachers favorite movie…luckily we never did solos and all i had to do was pretend singing by moving my lips…whenever the music teacher walked pass to hear each voice would i really sing(but not solo thank God) As long as it looked like i was singing i still got a good grade…lol

Some movies are classics and perfectly done the first time around. No remake is necessary for The Sound of Music.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Peter’s On Ice, But Is He “Dead” Dead?

Wednesday’s episode of General Hospital provided more to the back-story of what Finn (Michael Easton) and Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) did with Peter’s (Wes Ramsey) body after Finn tussled with the guy and Peter fell down the stairwell and hitting his head on the wall, to his supposed death.

In story, Liz became worried when thinking back to how she suggested to Finn – and that they carried out –  putting Peter’s body in a freezer in the sub-basement of the hospital.

As she recalls their plot (to keep Peter’s body from being discovered until they have time to move him permanently), Anna  (Finola Hughes) is on the move of the hospital and uncovers a hidden service elevator that might just take her to the sub-basement, where she could discover Peter’s lifeless body.

But hold the phone! While we know it was revealed that Wes Ramsey departed GH, could it be that Anna could discover the freezer with no sign of Peter in it? Do you really think his reign of terror is over given that he is Cesar Faison’s bio-son?

Share your thoughts: Do you think Peter is really dead, or will the character come back to haunt everyone and try to get revenge on all who tried to stand in his way of Maxie and his child? Comment below.
