“Sound of Music”(1965), a name that springs back memories to all those who have seen this film, the craving in the youth for seeing the handsome actor of the film over and over again, the heart- warming story of the film, was one of the best known concerts in the era immediately preceding World War II.
Capt Georg von Trapp played by Christopher Plummer is never to be forgotten role. It is stated that he disparaged the role as an “empty carcass” for years. Plummer passed away at 91 on Friday at his home in Weston and his wife informed that it was blow on his head as a result of a fall that took his life.
The Canadian actor had immense and myriad natural gifts and charm and arrogance in equal measure. It is also said that he was dismissed in a vote for the lead role of “Coriolanus” at National Theatre in London for crude and outrageous behaviour.
His career spanned 7 decades and he gained recognition for his performances in television, movies and theatre. Born on 13th December 1929, he made his debut in 1954 and continued to act in leading roles in theatre. He has also been a recipient of Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor, Drama Desk Awards, Canadian Screen Awards, Outer critics Circle Award and the list is unending.
A great actor has left and the entire world pays tribute. The “Sound of Music” actor sleeps in silence.
