Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment toasts the 45th anniversary of the five-time Academy Award-winning The Sound Of Music with its highly anticipated Blu-ray Disc debut on 8th November 2010. Starring Oscar winner Julie Andrews in one of her most memorable roles, the film adaptation of Rodgers and Hammerstein's musical follows Maria, a spirited young woman who leaves a convent and becomes a governess to seven unruly children. Her charm and songs soon win the hearts of the children but when their father is ordered to return to naval service, Maria is forced to attempt a daring escape with her new family.

Meticulously re-mastered The Sound Of Music 45th Anniversary Edition is presented with new 7.1 audio and offers Your Favourite Things: An Interactive Celebration featuring a Sing-A-Long, behind-the-scenes images, trivia and a location quiz; A City of Song with a virtual map of filming locations and interactive tour of the movie's locale of Salzburg, Austria; vintage programs including a hilarious send-up of The Sound of Music from Carol Burnett and Julie Andrews herself; an enchanting interview with the real Maria von Trapp on The Julie Andrews Hour; and, for the very first time in home entertainment format, a spectacular full-length documentary, Rodgers and Hammerstein: The Sound of American Music, hosted by Mary Martin; and much more.

Perfect for at home or on the go, The Sound of Music is available in 3-Disc Blu-ray and DVD Combo Packs. For a limited time, The Sound of Music is also available as a Limited Collector's Set packaged in a keepsake box and featuring a 100-page "My Favorite Things" scrapbook, a reproduction of the original 1965 souvenir program, an exclusive hand painted "My Favorite Things" music box and more.

Directed by Robert Wise and co-starring Christopher Plummer, the film garnered five Oscars including Best Picture and Best Director. A heartwarming story full of cherished songs such as "My Favorite Things", "Sixteen Going On Seventeen", "Edelweiss" and the title song, the film graces six different Top 100 lists by the American Film Institute including Musicals, Songs and Movies.

The Sound Of Music 45th Anniversary release is just one aspect of Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment's yearlong campaign to honor the studio's 75th birthday.
