Scoop: THE SOUND OF MUSIC on ABC - Sunday, December 23, 2012 SUNDAY, DECEMBER 23 (7:00-11:00 p.m., ET; OAD 12/28/08):

The original classic starring Julie Andrews brings its special magic to the holiday season. In "The Sound of Music," Maria, while waiting to take her vows, is sent to the home of the widowed and retired navy Captain Georg von Trapp (Christopher Plummer, "A Beautiful Mind," "The Insider") to care for his seven rambunctious children. Maria discovers the children, who have previously run off several governesses, are most in need of a little love. When she teaches them to sing, she wins the love of the children and the captain. The film is based on the real-life story of the von Trapp family. Maria's book, "The Story of the Trapp Family Singers," first became a German movie and later a successful Broadway musical before its Oscar-winning release in 1965. In 1938 the von Trapps escaped their native Austria and Nazi occupation to avoid Captain von Trapp's being forced to serve in the German navy.
